Trump Tower in New York city turned into "Dump Tower" on Google Maps for a few hours, and its proper name was restored on the mapping service by early Sunday morning.

The tower serves as President-elect Donald Trump's home in Manhattan. Its central location on Fifth Avenue has posed security challenges for the Secret Service and local law enforcement, CNN reported.

According to CNN, the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Columbus Circle had also been renamed "Dump International Hotel and Tower" on Saturday.

By Sunday morning, that reference also had been removed.

Users of the mapping service began to notice the new name on Saturday, and some took to social media to report it.

Trump has not yet commented on it. He has been using the Trump Tower as his transition headquarters.
