With Americans voting, a strange sight unfolded in Manhattan, but not that strange for it has once happened in the past.
Dump trucks filled with sand surround Trump Tower and the Javits Center, where Hillary Clinton will watch the election results.
According to police reports, the trucks and police surrounded both Manhattan addresses, as the massive trucks filled with sand provide a dense, protective barrier in the event of a bomb.
The New York Times reported in 1983 that the Reagans ate their Thanksgiving dinner while dump trucks filled with sand surrounded the White House in response to an apparent bomb scare.
In the event of a bomb threat, the trucks filled with sand will add a layer of protection to the outside of the buildings. New York City Police officers lined the streets outside each building too. Trump Tower was also closed to the public today, The Daily Caller reported.
