De Blasio Boasts That New York Will “Terminate” Doing Business With The Trump Organization

In a display of complete irony and hubris, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio – singlehandedly responsible for turning NYC into a ghost town over the last 12 months – took to Twitter yesterday to boast about the city ending its business relationships with the Trump Organization. 

“New York City doesn’t do business with insurrectionists,” he wrote. “We’re taking steps to TERMINATE agreements with the Trump Organization to operate the Central Park Carousel, Wollman and Lasker skating rinks, and the Ferry Point Golf Course.”

De Blasio also took to MSNBC this week, stating on the air: “The contracts make very clear: If the leadership of a company is engaged in illegal activity, we have the right to sever the contract. Inciting an insurrection against the U.S. government clearly constitutes criminal activity.”

But leading an insurrection against the NYPD isn’t, Bill?

BNN reports that the city believes it is on “strong legal ground” with its efforts. “They have profited from these contracts. They will profit no longer,” De Blasio said. A legal challenge from the Trump Organization is all but assured. 

Currently the Trump Organization has more than $17 million in contracts with the city, including the famous Wollman skating rink, which generated $9.4 million in income. 

“The administration will be notifying the Trump Organization that the city will cancel its agreements to operate the Central Park Carousel, Wollman and Lasker skating rinks and Ferry Point Golf Course in accordance. The contracts for the carousel and the ice rinks would end in coming weeks. The process for terminating the Ferry Point Golf Course is more detailed and is expected to take months,” De Blasio said in a statement.

The city of New York is the latest in the mob to “cancel” President Trump after last week’s Capitol Hill protests. That list now includes Lehigh University, Deutsche Bank, the PGA of America, Cushman & Wakefield real-estate services and corporations like Google, Facebook and Shopify.

Meanwhile, while NYC mayor De Blasio was worrying about who to “cancel” next, NYC saw a surge in homicides in 2020, helped along by the Mayor’s lack of support for policing. “New York City recorded 447 homicides for the year as of Tuesday, a 41 percent increase over 2019 and the largest tally since 2011,” NY Mag wrote back in December.
