NYC terminates business contracts with Trump after Capitol riot

NYC mayor Bill de Blasio said the city will end its business contracts with President Trump, after the president urged his supporters to march to the Capitol. The Trump Organization earns about $17 million a year in profits from its contracts with the city, de Blasio said. The city can legally terminate a contract if the leadership of a company is engaged in criminal activity.

So the guy who participated in painting a BLM sign outside Trump hotel considers a speech not calling for violence and not made in the context of violence which has happened before the event started criminal. BLM protests had already shown significant violence prior to De Blassio participating in that event. As I understand it the entry to the Capital building started after Trumps event at the Cresent started but before his speech concluded. There isn’t a plausible case for suggesting Trump caused or encouraged the entry to the Capital which his main critics appear willing to apply to Dems who supported BLM or the prior protest entries into the Capital or the Supreme Court building.

So the mayor took time from his busy schedule of running the city into the ground to score some virtue points from the political/media class. Brilliant move.

Soo like every company’s leaving New York is what I’m hearing, how naive must he be to think that at least half the CEOs opperating through New York are clean, or is it up to the mayors discretion cuz that sounds even more corrupt

If you have a contract that allows you to cancel it if the other party engages in criminal activity, you'd better wait until he's convicted. Trump's going to win a fortune in this lawsuit. It goes beyond canceling the contract and toward libel/slander. Deblasio has to show reasonable belief that Trump is a criminal, and that's what courts decide, not individuals.

It can still be taken to court considering that Trump only called for his supporters to come, not to storm the capitol and act like, well there’s no nice word for it

New York City can't afford to lose many more businesses or they will start to look a lot like California.

From the United States Declaration of Independence "When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States."

Straw that broke the camel’s back. Trump has officially polarized his party and alienated himself and his family business. He’s done.
