New York City is severing its contracts with the Trump Organization as a result of the riot at the U.S. Capitol last week, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Wednesday on MSNBC.
De Blasio said he was ending the relationship because President Trump had incited violence.
“Inciting an insurrection against the U.S. government clearly constitutes criminal activity,” De Blasio said on MSNBC. “The City of New York will no longer have anything to do with the Trump Organization. They have profited from these contracts, they will profit no longer.”
The contracts are for two ice-skating rinks at Central Park, the Central Park Carousel and the Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point, a city-owned golf course in the Bronx. The Trump organization profits about $17 million a year from these contracts, De Blasio said.
De Blasio said they’re moving forward with severing the contracts “right away” and expects the Trump Organization to challenge the city’s decision in court.

Hunter Biden sues IRS for not protecting his tax records
In a lawsuit happy world, President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, is the criminal being prosecuted, but somehow also in a position to bring forth a lawsuit of his own.
On Monday, Hunter Biden sued the Internal Revenue Service on the grounds that the federal agency illegally released his tax records during the investigation into him.
Filed in a Washington, D.C., federal court, Hunter alleges the IRS failed to protect his private records. The lawsuit sites congressional testimonies and media interviews with IRS whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler as examples.
“Despite clear warnings from Congress that they were prohibited from disclosing the contents of their testimony to the public in another forum, Mr. Shapley and Mr. Ziegler’s testimony only emboldened their media campaign against Mr. Biden,” the 27-page lawsuit says.
“And finally, since their public testimony before the House of Representatives on July 19, 2023, the agents have become regular guests on national media outlets and have made new allegations and public statements regarding Mr. Biden’s confidential tax return information that were not previously included in their transcripts before the Committee on Ways and Means.”
