At 1,792 feet tall, the proposed building would extend far above the neighboring World Trade Center, currently the fifth tallest building in the world.

"For Trump this is the ultimate," the New York Post quoted a Trump family friend as saying. "Donald is obsessed with that fact that New York should have the world's tallest building."
I don't know about that, but it would be a shame if Donald Trump couldn't get a supertall approved in New York. I don't think any developer has worked harder to get one.
