In a strong rebuke targeted towards NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio for canceling his company’s contract with a city-owned golf course in the Bronx borough, former President Donald Trump compared New York to communist countries on Tuesday.
In the wake of the Jan 6th Capitol Riots, Mayor Bill de Blasio had announced that the city would terminate the city’s contracts with the Trump Organization- hence putting an end to the 20-year contract with the city to run the Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point.
“The course has received rave reviews, is considered one of the top ten open to the public facilities in the United States (could even be the best!), is designed for tournament play, and Mayor De Blasio wants to take it away after all of the work was so successfully done, and so much money was spent,” Trump said in a Tuesday statement. “So unfair—this is what happens in Communist Countries, not in America!”
“At the request of Mayor Bloomberg, the former Mayor of New York City, I took a longtime scandal-ridden site in the Bronx, which for almost 30 years had been a money-losing disaster that the city could not get built, and transformed it into a magnificent Jack Nicklaus Signature designed golf course, clubhouse and amenities, which employs a large number of people and has been a showcase of beauty and success,” Trump said on Tuesday.
“Now under Mayor De Blasio, he wants to CONFISCATE the project from me for no reason whatsoever, and terminate my long-term arrangement with the city—and to think I just opened a beautiful $10 million clubhouse,” he added.
