The city said in a statement issued on Wednesday morning: “The attack on the Capitol killed a policeman, killed four rioters, exposed lawmakers to the threat of Covid-19, and threatened the transfer of constitutional powers. “This is a national hatred. In light of these new circumstances, we are reviewing whether there is a legal basis to end the concessions to the Trump Organization.”
Over the years, Cushman has handled several office and retail properties for the Trump Organization, including Trump Tower in New York City, Trump Plaza, Trump Tower at 40 Wall Street, and Trump International in Chicago Hotel building.
Trump and New York City Mayor De Blasio quarreled with each other for a long time.
de Blasio told MSNBC on Wednesday: “Inciting riots against the US government clearly constitutes criminal activity.” “New York City will no longer have any relationship with the Trump Organization.”
The Trump Organization vowed to fight the city.
The company’s statement said: “This is another example of Mayor Blasio’s inability and flagrant disregard of facts.” “New York City does not have the legal right to terminate our contract. If they choose to proceed with the contract, they will owe Trump. The organization exceeds $30 million. This is nothing more than political discrimination, and we plan to crack down on it.”
