New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio wanted skating rinks shut down in the city and we now know the reason why.
According to Town Hall:
New York City Hall reversed Mayor Bill de Blasio decision to shut down two ice rinks in Central Park before the season ends in April because they are Trump-operated.
“New York City kids deserve all the time on the ice they can get this year. The Wollman and Lasker rinks will stay open under current management for the few weeks left in this season,” City Hall Press Secretary Bill Neidhardt told The New York Post.
Neidhardt added that going forward, the city will “not be doing business with the Trump Organization,” citing the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, which he said “will never be forgotten or forgiven.”
The Trump Organization has been operating the ice rinks in the city for more than three decades.
Former President Trump stepped in when the development of the ice rinks was a money pit and got them finished under budget and before the expected finish date.
