New York City is being sued by The Trump Organization due to early termination after the Jan.6 riot, according to The Western Journal.
“The City has no right to terminate our contract,” Trump Organization officials stated.
“Mayor de Blasio’s actions are purely politically motivated, have no legal merit, and are yet another example of the mayor’s efforts to advance his own partisan agenda and interfere with free enterprise.”
“But for our involvement, New Yorkers would still be looking at an environmental eyesore instead of a spectacular, world-class golf facility.”
“Mayor de Blasio had a pre-existing, politically-based predisposition to terminate Trump-related contracts, and the city used the events of January 6, 2021 as a pretext to do so,” the suit states.
“There can be no dispute that we are not just meeting, but exceeding our obligation to operate a first class, tournament quality daily fee golf course.”
“The actions of Mr. Trump to incite a deadly riot at the Capitol on Jan. 6 caused a breach of the Ferry Point contract by eliminating options for hosting championship events, and we will vigorously defend the City’s decision to terminate the contract.”
“It was Donald Trump who interfered with basic democracy when he incited a deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol,” Bill Neidhardt stated.
“You do that, and you lose the privilege of doing business with the City of New York. It’s as simple as that.”
Eric Trump said, “We live in the age of cancel culture, but this isn’t something that started this week. It is something that they have been doing to us and others for years.”
“If you disagree with them, if they don’t like you, they try and cancel you.”
From The Western Journal:
The Trump Organization opened the course in 2015. The city had spent the previous 15 years trying to find someone to develop the former landfill the course is built upon, according to the lawsuit.
The Trump Organization invested more than $30 million in the course, the suit said.
The lawsuit framed the actions of Democrat de Blasio in killing the contract as another chapter in his long-running antagonistic relationship with former President Donald Trump.
The city, however, said Trump deserves to pay for the events of Jan. 6.
