And not just on his presidency. In New York City, Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio decided to take action and end contracts that allowed the Trump Organization to run some attractions in Central Park and a Bronx golf course.

“New York City does not deal with insurgent elements. We are taking action to end the agreements “which entrusted the Trump Organization with the operation of a merry-go-round and two rinks in Central Park, as well as a golf club in the Bronx, announced Bill de Blasio on Twitter.

Contracts that weigh in at $ 17 million

Asked about the MSNBC channel, the mayor explained that the city’s lawyers had concluded that the city was within its right to terminate these contracts, which weigh more than $ 17 million: “If a company or the management of a business participates in criminal activity, we have the right to stop it.
