NYC terminated contracts with Trump Organization after the Capitol revolt

The Mayor will be pull the Trump Organization’s multimillion-dollar contracts to operate four popular attractions in Big Apple’s public parks, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Wednesday.

Hizzoner accused the president of inciting him crowd swarming over Capitol Hill in violation of provisions that impede criminal behavior.

“The contracts show very clearly that if the company and the management of this company are engaged in illegal activities, we have the right to perform the contract,” Blasio told MSNBC ‘Morning Joe’ on Wednesday morning. “Inciting an insurrection against the U.S. government clearly constitutes criminal activity.”

“So, New York City will no longer have anything to do with the Trump Organization,” he added.

The Trump Organization operates four main attractions in the city’s parks: Trump Golf Links to Ferry Point in the Bronx; the Wollman Trail on the south side of Central Park, the Lasker Trail on the north end of Central Park and the famous Central Park Carousel.

Records filed with city controller Scott Stringer estimate that the contracts are worth more than $ 45 million dollars. About $ 36 million counts for the pair of gymnasiums.

Eric Trump reversed the city’s decision.

“Yet another example of Mayor Blasio’s incompetence and blatant contempt for the facts,” he said in a statement to ABC News. “New York City has no legal right to terminate our contracts and if elected to proceed, they owe the Trump Organization more than $ 30 million.”

He added: “It is nothing more than political discrimination and we plan to fight hard.”

The Trump organization did not immediately return a message from The Post seeking comment.

Mark Clyman, a Manhattan corporate lawyer at Wilk Auslander LLP, said the denial of contracts could not be clear.

“They needed to find reasons for the end,” Clyman told The Post Tuesday.

I hadn’t seen the contracts.

“The bottom line is if there isn’t a clear and delineated way to end the deal from the city then there’s not much to do,” he added. “You may not terminate a contract without the right to terminate it … otherwise you will be subject to breach of contract and monetary damages.”
