New York City is considering canceling its business contracts with the Trump Organization, over last week’s violent and deadly US Capitol riot, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday.
The Big Apple has several contracts with the Trump Organization “and they are all under review right now,” de Blasio told reporters during a City Hall press briefing.
De Blasio said the city is looking into terminating those contracts “very, very carefully and very quickly.”
“The president incited a rebellion against the United States government – clearly an unconstitutional act and people died,” the mayor charged. “That’s unforgivable.”
“So our legal team is right now assessing the options,” de Blasio said.
Last Wednesday, an unruly mob of Trump backers ransacked the Capitol after the president gave a fiery speech to supporters near the White House ahead of Congress certifying the electoral college win of Joe Biden.
The Capitol invasion left five dead, including a Capitol police officer.
