Donald Trump is protecting himself with heavy dump trucks full of sand.

The trucks have formed a barrier in front of Trump Tower in New York City where Trump spent the day, Townhall reported.

Newstalk ZB content director Nadia Tolich is at the scene and said it was pandemonium.

"Dozens of dump trucks filled with sand are lining the streets, and those are there in case there is an explosion.


"It's pretty scary stuff, there are police officers everywhere heavily geared up."

Dump trucks also protect Hillary Clinton who is staying at the nearby Peninsula Hotel, where pedestrians are prevented from approaching the building directly.

The New York Police Department are providing security around the perimeter of both properties. Protesters and supporters of both candidates are expected to amass in the area later today.

Trump will hold his election party at the Hilton on Sixth Ave and Clinton is hosting her celebration at the Javits.
