New York City announced on Wednesday that it would cut trade ties with the Trump Organization, and at least two companies were running similar moves, citing the storming rush of the US Capitol last week, saying President Donald Trump Was liked.
Mayor Bill de Blasio, who accused the outgoing president of inciting the crowd, said the move affects three contracts with the company to operate a carousel in Manhattan’s Central Park, a skating rink and a golf in the Bronx Course.
“Blasio said in a statement,” the president instigated a rebellion against the United States government that killed five people and threatened to cancel the constitutional transfer of power. “New York City shall not be associated with those unforgivable acts in any shape, manner or form.”
The mayor’s office said in a statement that it could take “several months” to cancel the contract for the golf course, while others could be terminated in 25-30 days.
The contracts are valued at $ 17 million per year, De Blasio said on MSNBC.
The New York-based Trump Organization did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
On January 6, Trump addressed thousands of supporters, reiterating his unsupported claim that his re-election was stolen. He urged them to march to the Capitol, where Congress was confirming President-Elect Joe Biden’s victory at Electoral College.
The crowd rapidly overwhelmed Capitol security, with many of them entering the building and halting proceedings as lawmakers took cover in a safe place. Five people died due to the stampede.
Trump’s role in encouraging crowds also targeted some of his personal banking relationships. According to the public signature, a spokesman for the bank said it would close their checking and money market accounts, amounting to at least $ 5.1 million.
Signature Bank said Trump should resign and said it would not do business with members of Congress, who rejected the results of the Electoral College.
Separately, a spokesperson for the leading commercial real estate firm Cushman & Wakefield said in an email that it would no longer do business with the Trump Organization.
The firm had worked as an agent for two high-profile Trump Organization assets in Manhattan, including Trump Tower, the president’s former residence.
Following the Capitol riots, both PGA and R&A of America announced that they would be leaving two golf courses owned by the president.
In addition, the New York Times reported on Tuesday that Deutsche Bank DBKGn.DE will not do business with Trump or his companies in the future.
