Members of the City Council called on Mayor Eric Adams to end the city’s contract with the Trump Organization on Thursday. The current arrangement allows former President Donald Trump’s company to manage a public golf course in the Bronx.
In January 2021, then-Mayor Bill de Blasio announced he was ending the city’s contract with the Trump Organization over management of the golf course, saying he had authority to do so because of Trump’s “criminal” role in the Jan. 6, 2021 insurrection.
However, a Manhattan Supreme Court judge ruled in April that the city had wrongfully terminated the 20-year contract. Council members argued that the permitting issue should be revived due to a series of legal troubles facing the Trump Organization.
