“Attacks on our Capitol killed a police officer, killed four rebels, exposed Covid-19 lawmakers and threatened a constitutional transfer of power,” the city said in a statement issued Wednesday morning. “They were a national abomination. We are reviewing whether there are legal grounds in light of these new circumstances for the termination of concessions with the Trump organization.”
Over the years, Cushman has handled several offices and commercial properties for the Trump organization, including the Trump Tower in New York, Trump Plaza, the Trump building on Wall Street 40, and the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago.
Trump and the mayor of New York de Blasio have been sparring with each other for a long time.
“Inciting an uprising against the US government is clearly a criminal activity,” de Blasio told MSNBC on Wednesday. “New York City will no longer have anything to do with Trump.
Trump’s organization did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the city’s actions. But Eric Trump, the CEO of a family business, gave a statement to ABC, attacking the action and promising to fight it.
“Another example of incompetence and gross disregard for the facts of Mayor de Blasio,” the statement said. “The city of New York has no legal right to terminate our contracts, and if they decide to continue, they will owe Trump more than $ 30 million. This is nothing more than political discrimination, and we plan to fight it vigorously.”
