    de Blasio saying goodbye to Trumps tax dollars

    Jan. 13, 2020

    NEW YORK (AP) — New York City will terminate business contracts with President Donald Trump after last week’s insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Wednesday.

    “I’m here to announce that the city of New York is severing all contracts with the Trump Organization,” de Blasio said in an interview on MSNBC.

    De Blasio said the Trump Organization earns about $17 million a year in profits from its contracts to run two ice skating rinks and a carousel in Central Park as well as a golf course in the Bronx.

    The city can legally terminate a contract if the leadership of a company is engaged in criminal activity, the Democratic mayor said. “Inciting an insurrection — let’s be very clear, let’s say the words again — inciting an insurrection against the United States government clearly constitutes criminal activity,” he said.

    An email seeking comment was sent Wednesday to the Trump Organization.

    The move to end Trump’s business contracts in the city he formerly called home is the latest example of how the Jan. 6 breach by violent Trump supporters is affecting the Republican president’s business interests.

    The PGA of America voted Sunday to take the PGA Championship away from his New Jersey golf course next year, a move that came after social media platforms disabled Trump’s accounts and Shopify took down online stores affiliated with him.

    De Blasio had said earlier that the city was examining its legal options to end the Trump contracts. He said Wednesday that city lawyers determined that if Trump sues over the move, the city will win. Trump “incited a mob to attack the Capitol,” de Blasio said, adding, “The lawyers looked at it and it was just as clear as a bell that’s grounds for severing these contracts and we’re moving to do that right away.”

    The split with Trump’s namesake company won’t happen immediately, though. De Blasio said in a news release that terminating contract to run the Ferry Point golf course in the Bronx is complex “and is expected to take a number of months.”

    Termination of the contract to run Wollman Rink and Lasker Rink in Central Park will take effect 30 days after written notice is delivered, de Blasio said. Termination of the contract to run the carousel, which is now closed because of the coronavirus pandemic, will take effect 25 days after written notice.

    The city will seek new vendors for all the attractions, the mayor said.

    Removing the Trump name from the rinks, carousel and golf course won’t erase him from New York City. He will still operate Trump Tower on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue and the Trump International Hotel on Central Park West. Trump moved his official residence from Trump Tower to Florida in 2019.

    Hope Trump sues and wins!

            The way demtards treat anyone not a demtard.
            Main reason is demtards are always right and can do what they want.
            Years of them promoting violence (BLM, Antifa, etc...), but they whine like bitches when it's anyone else doing the "peaceful protesting".

              A card carrying communist who has spent his life teacupping the likes of Castro, the Sandinistas, Chavez and others actually saying those words out loud would be laughable if it were not for his first amendment right to say it. Killing the contracts? I hope DJT sues his POS ass into oblivion.

                No such thing as due process for conservatives, only snowflakes.

                  He may have moved but his business is still HQd in the city as far as I know. He should move the HQ to America. He can’t do anything about the buildings he owns here, Shirley if selling them, but he can move the offices.

                    I don't think he did much business for the state or city. Now, if Elon Musk moved out of California I'd leave that shithole, too.

                      What an asshole. If Debozo doesn’t have another vendor to run these venues it’s just more tax revenue and jobs lost. Good let them close. These idiots that voted for crazy joe will have no place to skate or play golf in the south Bronx. I can’t believe the stupidity here but then again look who your dealing with.

                          Trump's business, that he was no longer running since he took office, held contracts to run park properties in NYC for $17 million a year. Two ice rinks, the Central Park Carousel and a golf course.

                            Wasn't there a restaurant at Jones Beach too? I forgot about that stuff.
