The authorities of New York decided to terminate all contracts with the company of the current U.S. President Donald Trump against the background of the recent riots in the Capitol. This was announced by Mayor Bill de Blasio in an interview with MSNBC.
De Blasio explained that the contracts clearly state that city officials have the right to terminate them if the company’s leadership is involved in criminal activity. “Sedition against the U.S. government is clearly a criminal activity. The City of New York will no longer have anything to do with the Trump Organization,” the official said.
According to the contracts, Trump’s company-operated two ice rinks and a carousel in Central Park, as well as a golf club in the Bronx.
The storming of the U.S. Capitol took place on January 6 during a rally of supporters of the incumbent who did not recognize the results of the November vote, which resulted in the election of Democrat Joe Biden as president. The rallies led to clashes with police. Five people were killed and dozens were detained.
