NYC to terminate Trump contracts after Capitol insurrection


NEW YORK (AP) -- Mayor Bill de Blasio says New York City will terminate business contracts with President Donald Trump after last week's insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

The Trump Organization is under city contract to operate the two ice rinks and a carousel in Central Park as well as a golf course in the Bronx.

De Blasio says the Trump Organization profits about $17 million a year from those sites.

It is the latest example of how the Jan. 6 breach by violent Trump supporters is impacting the Republican president's business interests.

The PGA of America voted Sunday to take the PGA Championship away from his New Jersey golf course next year, several social media platforms disabled Trump's accounts and Shopify took down online stores affiliated with him.
