NEW YORK (AP) – Police say a man who climbed partway up the facade of Trump Tower in New York City had posted a video online saying he did it because he wanted “a private audience” with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

In the video, the unidentified 20-year-old Virginia man says he’s “an independent researcher” who wants to “discuss an important matter” with Trump.

The climber was pulled into an open window on the 58-story building’s 21st floor Wednesday evening three hours into the stunt. Police say he was taken to a hospital to be psychologically evaluated.

The tower is headquarters to Trump’s presidential campaign and his business empire. Trump also lives there but wasn’t inside at the time.
