CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- The President’s son, Donald Trump Jr., breezed in and out of City Hall for an unannounced, apparently cordial meeting Thursday about possible changes at Chicago’s Trump Tower.

The younger Trump met with Ald. Brendan Reilly, 42nd Ward, to talk about better uses of unoccupied space at the tower and changes to the 16th floor restaurant.

Reilly says the two did not discuss the alderman’s pet peeve: the big letters spelling out the Trump name.

“I’d love to try to get that sign a lot smaller. We could always talk about that, but right now, it’s really just talking about tenanting the space,” Reilly told reporters.

Reilly said Trump is aware he opposes much of what the president does, but “we didn’t get into politics,” he noted.

“That’s my job: I have to divorce politics from business.”

Trump Jr. did not speak with reporters.
