Eric Trump dropped the hammer on another petty, power-hungry, ineffective Dem politician after New York City mayor Bill de Blasio’s stunt to punish the Trump organization backfired and ended up hurting a bunch of innocent kids instead.
In a gross and shameless move, de Blasio is closing the city’s ice rinks managed by the Trump org early rather than at the end of the season.
“Despite our appeals to the City to allow us to continue operations through the duration of the skating season — which would not only save the jobs of nearly 250 individuals who work or otherwise provide services Wollman and Lasker Rinks, but also allow us to continue to provide the numerous public skating sessions and skating and hockey programs that we host on a daily basis — the City rejected our efforts,” the Trump Organization said in a statement.
Executive Vice President Eric Trump ripped de Blasio for the shameless and “petty” move saying closing early will only hurt kids not the Trump organization.
“The city is saying in effect, ‘We don’t care if it destroys the skating season; we want you out now,’” Trump said. “This is one of the only things that kids can do” for outdoor winter recreation, he noted.
“De Blasio is now shutting down skating season while New York dies. It’s horribly sad,” he said.
“The mayor is absolutely petty. This isn’t about us, this is about the people of the city who come here to skate and disabled kids who joined hockey teams and others who joined skating school and take lessons every week,” Trump said.
“This is purely a political stunt that only hurts New Yorkers,” Trump said.
“Instead of focusing on a dying city which everyone is leaving because of rising crime, high taxes, closed businesses and totally incompetent leadership, the mayor is painting signs in front of Trump Tower and destroying more jobs along with the only outdoor activity available to children during a pandemic.”
“To get back at a person who sits on the other side of the political aisle and now lives in Florida?”
“Let’s cancel kids’ programs six weeks early, that will show Trump,” he said.
“Trump has been impeached from operating the ice rink,” a de Blasio spokesman said Jan. 31 when they announced they were termination the Trump’s contracts early and probably illegally.
Don’t forget – Trump had to come in and save and rebuild one of the ice rinks after shoddy contractors botched the job and they do this now rather than wait a month? Such a disgrace and worse terrible politics.
