TRUMP ORGANIZATI­ON LOSES US$17M WORTH OF CONTRACTS

-

New York City will cut its financial ties with the Trump Organizati­on in the wake of the u.s. president’s inflammato­ry remarks to the crowd that stormed the Capitol last week, the city’s mayor announced. Bill de Blasio said the city will cancel three contracts to operate a carousel in Central Park, skating rinks and a golf course in the Bronx that are worth around us$17 million a year. The Trump Organizati­on swiftly announced plans to challenge what it branded a politicall­y motivated decision. Amanda Miller, a spokeswoma­n for the company, said: “The City of New york has no legal right to end our contracts and if they elect to proceed, they will owe the Trump Organizati­on over us$30 million.” But Mr de Blasio, a democrat and regular critic of donald Trump, said: “We’re on strong legal ground.”
