Last week, Donald Trump’s haters were stunned when he was named as the frontrunner in the GOP race. These poll results have forced everyone on all sides of the political spectrum to take Trump seriously as a presidential contender in 2016.
After Trump made his controversial comments about illegal immigrants from Mexico, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio launched an investigation into Trump’s contracts with the city. During a press conference on Monday, de Blasio acknowledged that he may not be able to break existing contracts with Trump. However, he promised that New York would never make deals with Trump again in the future.
“My impression is that unless there has been some breaking of a contract or something that gives us a legal opportunity to act, I’m not sure we have a specific course of action,” de Blasio told reporters, according to CNN Money. “But we’re certainly not looking to do any business with him going forward.”
de Blasio added that he is waiting on a final report that will tell him whether the city of New York can get out of a series of contracts with the developer. These contracts include a golf course in the Bronx, the Central Park carousel, and two ice rinks.
New York City Councilman Mark Levine has also launched a petition in the hopes of convincing the city to sever all ties with Trump.
“Our parks are for everyone,” the Democrat said. “Trump’s continued ownership of parks concessions runs directly contrary to that spirit.”
Since Trump announced his candidacy, de Blasio and his liberal minions have been on a mission to destroy Trump’s New York businesses. On Monday, de Blasio also slammed Trump for the comments he made about McCain recently.
“What Mr. Trump said about Senator McCain was unacceptable,” the mayor said. “Senator McCain is a war hero by any measure, and [Trump] really should apologize for that. And I’ve said repeatedly, Donald Trump doesn’t represent the views of the people of this city — certainly not of the majority.”
“But this is an issue for folks in the other party to work through,” he added. “I just think what he said in the last few days was reprehensible.”
