A month before the U.S. elections, the prominent BBC presenter Andrew Neil tweeted a picture, overlooking the New York skyline.
But he didn’t say where he was tweeting from.
But Political Scrapbook can reveal that Andrew Neil was tweeting from his multi-million dollar apartment – in Trump World Towers.
Yes, the Trump World Towers, which helped the incoming President of the United States make his fortune.
The apartment was bought in 2004. Andrew F. Neil created a company in the U.S. called Glenburn America Incorporated, of which he remains the CEO.
Glenburn America Inc. paid $3.2 million for an apartment on the 78th floor of 845 United Nations Plaza, also in 2004.
That is the address for Trump World Towers.

A press officer from the BBC confirmed to Political Scrapbook it was indeed his apartment.
So is Andrew Neil close to Donald Trump?
But the source told us that Neil has only met Trump twice, and “they do not have a relationship in a personal capacity”.
Neil hasn’t yet managed to snag an interview with Donald Trump, though he has been very even-handed in covering Trump so far.
They certainly share some views… climate change denial is one prominent example.
