US President-elect Donald Trump can be a part of the transportation and traffic solution by leaving Midtown and supporting needed New York City infrastructure projects, according to the chairman of the New York City Council transportation committee, Ydanis Rodriguez.

NEW YORK (Sputnik) – US President-elect Donald Trump should move his transition headquarters from the center of Manhattan to ease the area’s traffic congestion, the chairman of the New York City Council transportation committee, Ydanis Rodriguez, told reporters outside Trump Tower on Monday.

"President-elect Donald Trump can be a part of the transportation and traffic solution by leaving Midtown and supporting needed New York City infrastructure projects," Rodriguez said.

Security measures, including partial street closures and barricades around the incoming president’s luxury Fifth Avenue residence, have been in place since November 9, the day after Election Day. They have exacerbated problems of heavy vehicle and pedestrian traffic in midtown Manhattan – home to New York’s theater district, Times Square and Central Park – and the problem is only getting worse during the holiday shopping season, Rodriquez stated.

In his brief news conference, Rodriguez encouraged Trump to be “a good New Yorker" and move his transition headquarters outside the city borough.

Other City Council members have also pointed out headaches involving Trump Tower. On Friday, the council’s speaker, Melissa Mark-Viverito, was among a group of city lawmakers who launched a petition demanding that Trump reimburse the city for an estimated $1 million in daily security costs in the area.
