The City Of New York Has Moved To End Multiple Big Contracts With Trump: “We Want You Out Now!”

Donald Trump may be profiting from his presidency but his brand has become toxic around the world with his name being pried off of buildings and his daughter’s shitty fashion line shuttering. Ivanka, of course, said she closed her own business in order to focus on advising her father — but take that with a grain of salt.

Trump and his family recently moved from New York City, his hometown in which the people loathe him, to Florida to live in Mar-a-Lago when he’s not busy shitposting while shoving hamberders in his bizarrely shaped mouth.

New York City has had it with its former resident, according to the Daily News.

Manhattan Councilman Mark Levine introduced a resolution urging Mayor Bill de Blasio to terminate the Trump Organization’s ongoing contracts with the city.

“If New York City isn’t good enough for you to live in, then it’s not good enough for you to run businesses in. We want you out now!” the Councilman said of Trump.

The resolution cites a list of grievances, including the alleged constitutional violations to a recent state attorney general investigation finding Trump misused his charitable foundation. Trump has had to fork over $2 million recently to eight charities as part of the settlement in which the president admitted that he misused funds raised by the Donald J. Trump Foundation to promote his campaign bid and pay off business debts.

“It’s just a matter of profound offense to most New Yorkers that our city has given four lucrative Parks (Department) concessions to the Trump Organization,” Levine continued.

“The Trump Organization is a company that is deeply entangled in a criminal conspiracy and there is ample precedent for Parks concession contracts being canceled on such grounds,” he added.

And about that Emoluments Clause:

Levine’s resolution states that the Trump Organization’s contracts to run two skating rinks and a carousel at Central Park, along with the Trump Golf Links in the Bronx, mark a violation of the Constitution, which bars the president from getting money or other ’emoluments’ from either U.S. or foreign governments.”

In October, the Trump Organization removed the president’s name from the two ice rinks he operates in Central Park. Everything Trump touches turns into shit — including himself.
