New York City will close two ice rinks in Central Park at the end of the day Sunday after cutting all business ties with their sponsor, the Trump Organization, CBS News reports.
After incendiary comments by Donald Trump and his son Junior at a January 6th rally in Washington, DC incited a domestic terrorist attack on the Capitol, many business and organizations cut ties with Trump-run businesses. New York City opted to cancel the operating agreements the Trump had for the ice rinks, and it has not yet signed with a new management company.
The ice rinks were going to close Sunday to allow the Trump Organization to remove its signage and property. The city opted to close the rinks rather than operate them itself.
The contracts to operate the ice rinks, as well as the carousel in Central Park and a golf course in the Bronx, will all officially end February 26th.
The Trump Organization is appealing the decision. Second son and Star Trek “Odo” cosplayer Ewic Twump said the city is acting in “a political stunt that only hurts New Yorkers,” not mentioning that the political move was one to cut ties with a family that openly called for undermining the Constitution of the United States.
