New York City plans to terminate its business relationships with President Donald Trump. The decision was made as a result of last week’s US Capitol Riots. Donald Trump has been impeached for the second time. The president incited the violent acts of the domestic terrorist who attempted to overthrow the US government. The riot claimed the lives of at least five people.
New York City Officials intend to end contracts with the Trump Organization immediately. The company currently operates the Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point, the Central Park Carousel, and the Wollman and Lasker ice skating rinks.
“The attacks on our Capitol killed a police officer, left four rioters dead, exposed lawmakers to Covid-19, and threatened the constitutional transfer of power. They were a national abomination. We’re reviewing whether legal grounds exist in light of these new circumstances to terminate concessions with the Trump Organization.” the city said in a statement.

Several private businesses have also broken all ties to the Trump organization. Some companies include Deutsche Bank and Signature Bank, credit card processor Stripe, Shopify, and the PGA of America.
The global real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield is also boycotting any Trump alliance. In a statement, they said it “has decided to do business with The Trump Organization no longer.”
Cushman previously handled several properties, including New York City’s Trump Tower, Trump Plaza, the Trump Building at 40 Wall Street, and the Trump International Hotel and Tower.
