After the riots in Congress, his accomplices “cut off their seats” and his partners cut off business contacts. Trump has become a betrayal. Even New York, where Trump was born, is brewing a “one punch”.
The New York Times and NPR reported on January 12 that New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said on the same day that the city was considering canceling the business contract with the Trump Group.
“We are thinking about this very carefully and very quickly,” de Blasio said at a press conference on the 12th.
“The president incited a rebellion against the U.S. government, which was clearly unconstitutional and that some people died as a result, which was inexcusable.” de Blasio added.
According to the Washington Post, de Blasio spokesman Laura Feyer also pointed out in a statement that Trump-incited attacks on Congress “causing the death of one policeman and four mobs, exposing lawmakers to the novel coronavirus and threatening By the transfer of constitutional power, they were abhorred by the state.
“In light of these new circumstances, we are examining whether there is a legal basis for ending the Trump Group franchise.” Faye said.
The Trump Group operates two ice rinks, a carousel, and a golf course in the Bronx in Central Park, New York. The contracts for the rink and carousel will expire in April this year, and the contract for the golf course will expire in April 2032.
The Washington Post said that the above-mentioned park franchise has brought about $17 million in revenue to the Trump Group.
The New York Times quoted legal experts as saying that if the New York City government’s motivation is simply out of personal disgust with Trump, it may be difficult for them to terminate the contract, because the agreement prohibits termination on “arbitrary” or “capricious” reasons.
The report noted that while losing the New York City contract might not be a financial blow to the Trump Group, it would be a “significant symbolic accusation” from his hometown.
Democratic New York City Councilman Mark Levine has long supported New York to cut off its ties with the Trump group.
“It would be ridiculous if we continue to allow him to profit from these businesses, which are on public property, which is our sacred public green space.”
Levin, who was the former president of the New York City Council Parks committee, believes that there is a legal basis for terminating the contract with the Trump Group, not to mention that the Trump Group has been performing poorly.
“The city is getting worse and worse, and people are avoiding this place because of Trump’s name.”
