Of the many anti-Trump ‘purges’ the left was hoping to slap OrangeManBad with in their fit of pique, tearing his name from the ice rinks in Central Park was one of the pettiest snubs.
It was also one of the most public. Helen Keller could have seen this was intended as a personal snub, not a considered business decision.
De Blasio announced that, almost immediately after the end of his presidency, the Trump organization would no longer have a contract to service and maintain those rinks. De Blasio has egg on his face now that he’s forced to walk back that very public announcement.
On Sunday, however, de Blasio suddenly caved to the pressure and began reconsidering closing the rinks, which would’ve cost 250 jobs.
In a statement to DailyMail.com, Trump Organization’s Amanda Miller said: ‘We are very pleased to share with you that the city has reconsidered its decision and announced this evening that they will allow us to remain as the operator of the Wollman and Lasker Rinks. We will be finishing out the season and our regular programming will resume tomorrow.’
Eric Trump, who is the executive vice president of the Trump Organization, showed appreciation towards de Blasio on Twitter.
‘@NYCMayor Mr. Mayor – Thank You for keeping Wollman and Lasker Rinks open — you’ve just made countless NYC families (along w our 250 employees) incredibly happy. This is a bright moment for New York and please know we appreciate it. I look forward to saying “thanks” in person.’
…’This is purely a political stunt that only hurts New Yorkers,’ Eric Trump told DailyMail.com in an earlier statement.
‘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 trying to destroy the only outdoor activity available to children during a pandemic,’ he said. –DailyMail
Don’t worry, De Blasio. You may not have Trump as a lightning rod to deflect attention from your various failures as mayor anymore…
But you still have Andy Cuomo. And with the crapstorm he’s walking into, it might almost be enough for New Yorkers to forget what a colossal failure you have been.
