Contracts

New York City will terminate business contracts with President Donald Trump after last week's insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Wednesday. The Trump Organization is under city contract to operate the two ice rinks and a carousel in Central Park as well as a golf course in the Bronx. The Trump Organization profits about $17 million a year from those sites, de Blasio said. “I’m here to announce that the city of New York is severing all contracts with the Trump Organization,” de Blasio said.

Comments:

Well, of course you'll cancel these contracts! Severing ties with the only person who ever successfully built things in NYC on time, while simultaneously providing millions of dollars in tax revenue, seems like just the kind of lame brained move a drug-addled commie like De Blasio would pull. In 4 years NYC will be a ghost town thanks to Mayor Pothead and Don Cuomo.

Some Florida cities should get ready for a makeover. Remember how some of the most notorious gangsters (black in particular) up North came from down South? Well, Mr. President, I know you live in Flo-rida now, but we'll take you in reverse all over the South.

Canceling a contract is an expensive legal process. I expect Trump to sue and the settlement amount will probably be under an NDA. But it makes great headlines and makes all Trump derangers happy.

Don't know what the contracts say, but unless there is something in them that gives de Blovart legal authority to cancel, Trump can sue and make the city pay bigly. These Dems are going over the top and hopefully it will bite them in the ---

What happened at the capitol, even if incited by Trump, is not a legal excuse to breach of contract. Sounds like a lawsuit.

President Trump needs to close down all of his NY city businesses. He then needs to sell him buildings to churches who can then use them for official church business so that the city will not get a penny of tax money out of them. Sure, he will lose some money in these deals. But it will massively hurt this nasty and evil Sodom and Gomorrah city far more so!!!!!

And the ice rinks will be defunct very soon. The corrupt city wasted $13 million dollars and got NOTHING when they spent six years "fixing" the skating rink. Trump took over, guaranteeing a six month turnaround and no more than $3 million in cost. Crooked Koch tried hard to keep Trump from getting the contract, but the people of NYC were sick of it. Trump finished the project in four months, 25% under cost, and has run it at a profit, generating money for CHARITY ever since 1987. And the city leaders have hated him for showing up their incompetence and corruption ever since. So, the rink will be crapped out soon enough, and the money flowing to charity will dwindle and stop. Communists ruin EVERYTHING, always.

Got a feeling DeBlankio will have his head handed to him i court. Pretty sure the contract will have specific grounds for termination and DeBlankio's claim of insurrection will be handled in a court of Pseudo -law (It is NY state after all).

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said on Wednesday that income tax increases in the state were inevitable even if the government did dole out more coronavirus-related aid. “You probably will see tax increases in any event,” Cuomo said during his press conference. Cuomo had previously indicated tax hikes on the wealthy were on the table if the government failed to approve more funding for state and local governments. The three-term Democratic governor said on Wednesday that the consequences would be “devastating” if Congress does not agree to provide aid, involving several thousand layoffs, increased fares and tolls and government borrowing.

President Trump was impeached a second time by the US House of Representatives on Wednesday in a largely party-line vote that saw a handful of Republicans join Democrats to blame the outgoing commander-in-chief for sparking last week’s Capitol siege. The measure reached 217 “yea” votes shortly after 4:20 p.m. to make Trump the only president to be impeached twice. The final vote was 232-197, with 10 Republicans crossing party lines and four Republicans not voting when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) announced around 4:35 p.m. No members of the GOP voted in 2019 to impeach Trump the first time.

President Trump potentially faces a torrent of criminal charges when he leaves office, including charges linked to the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, making prosecutors worry that he is a flight risk. Mr. Trump’s real estate empire extends to multiple luxury properties in countries that don’t have extradition treaties with the United States. And Mr. Trump himself publicly mused in October that he’d leave the country if he lost to Democrat Joseph R. Biden. Douglas McNabb, a private attorney with expertise in international extradition defense, said that if criminal charges are brought, Mr. Trump fits the bill for becoming a fugitive from justice.
