New York City announces Trump by ending his long-term contracts for the iconic ice rinks in Central Park, the Park Carousel and the Ferry Point Golf Course in the Bronx.
Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the move of Morning Joe from MSNBC on Wednesday. The city has three contracts with the Trump organization that de Blasio said will bring in an annual profit of $ 17 million.

ERIC TRUMP SAYS NYC HAS NO RIGHT TO END TRUMP ORG AGREEMENTS
Eric Trump said in a statement following the de Blaisos announcement, "Another example of Mayor de Blasio's incompetence and blatant disregard for the facts.
"The City of New York has no legal right to terminate our contracts. If you choose to continue, you owe the Trump Organization more than $ 30 million."
& # 39; Our legal team has made an assessment and the contracts make it very clear that we have the right to terminate the contract if any company or the leadership of that company is involved in criminal activity.
“Inciting a riot, let's be clear that I will say these words again. Inciting an insurrection against the United States government is clearly a criminal activity.
& # 39; The city of New York will no longer have anything to do with the Trump organization. You benefited from these contracts. You will no longer benefit. & # 39;
Currently, the Trump organization benefits from about $ 17 million a year from these contracts.
“They cover four different locations, three in Manhattan, one in the Bronx, and different entertainment venues. And it is very clear that the President of the United States directed a mob to attack the US Congress during the vote on the electoral college.
"That's – I mean, even when I say the words, it's almost impossible to believe."
In a later statement he said: “The President instigated an insurrection against the United States government that killed five people and threatened to derail the constitutional delegation.
"The City of New York is in no way associated with such unforgivable acts and we are taking immediate steps to terminate all Trump Organization contracts."
He added that the Trump organization was likely to move back to court, but his legal team was ready to fight them.
“Of course we know the history of the Trump organization. You will likely challenge us in court, but we have a strong legal base. We are very clear about that, ”he said.
James E. Johnson, advisor to the corporation added: & # 39; Mr. Trump's instigation of violence in our Capitol was anathema.
