A Mexican politician has staged a one-man protest at Trump Tower.

Gerardo Fernández Noroña on Wednesday sat down in the lobby of the Manhattan skyscraper and briefly refused to leave. He held a map of the United States labeled "Mexico in 1830" and showed it to the reporters and photographers gathered in the lobby.

Noroña was then escorted from the building. He later tweeted that he was "satisfied" with the nonviolent protest.

Noroña, a politician and sociologist, has staged similar demonstrations in his native Mexico. A spokeswoman for Trump, who lives in the skyscraper's penthouse, did not respond to a request for comment.

Many Mexicans are nervous about relations with Trump, who began his campaign by suggesting that many of them who entered the U.S. illegally were rapists.
