A man was scaling Trump Tower in New York on Wednesday, reportedly using suction cups and prompting a police response outside the Manhattan headquarters of the Republican nominee for president.

"We are sending our units there to try to find out what's going on," a New York police spokesman told AFP.

A video clip and pictures posted on Twitter appeared to show a man climbing up the outside face of the tower as uniformed officers looked on.

Police said they had no immediate information on the identity of the person or his motive for scaling the glass skyscraper.

New York billionaire Donald Trump lives in the building, which is also the headquarters of his Trump Organization company. The Republican nominee was Wednesday outside the city, holding a rally in North Carolina.
