New York City is seeking to terminate its business relationships with the Trump Organization in response to January 6th insurrection at the US Capitol building.
Officials in New York City announced plans to end the Trump Organization’s contracts to operate the Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point, the Central Park Carousel and the Wollman and Lasker ice skating rinks.
“The attacks on our Capitol killed a police officer, left four rioters dead, exposed lawmakers to Covid-19 and threatened the constitutional transfer of power. They were a national abomination. We’re reviewing whether legal grounds exist in light of these new circumstances to terminate concessions with the Trump Organization,” New York City announced in a statement issued Wednesday.
