   New York City is cancelling contracts the city has with the Trump Organization after the deadly Capitol building riot last week. Mayor Bill de Blasio says if a company is engaged in criminal activity, the city has the right to toss their contracts. 

“We all saw a crime committed live on TV. Ugh come on.  It’s quite clear The president of the United States committed a criminal act.  He directed insurrection against the United States Capitol, period that’s criminal.”

Trump’s son Eric vows to fight this in court saying the city has no legal right to end the contracts and calls it political discrimination. The Trump Organization has contracts for the Central Park Carousel, two ice rinks and a golf course.
