The 'Dump Tower'
A prankster has renamed US-President elect Donald Trump's midtown Manhattan building 'Trump Tower' as 'Dump Tower' on Google Maps.
If one searches for Trump Tower on Google Maps, they will not find that exact name there. Instead, they will find 'Dump Tower.'
Twitterati made fun of the new name.

This is not all, the culprit also transliterated the skyscraper's title in Russian Cyrillic at another angle, possibly alluding to the Republican's alleged ties to Russia during the campaign trail.
