At his daily press conference, De Blasio said he has ordered his legal team to “review” all of the city’s contracts with the Trump Organization, which are generally tourism-related and account for about $ 17 million in revenue for the company.
“The president incited a rebellion against the United States government, clearly an unconstitutional act, and people died. It is unforgivable and our legal team is reviewing the options ”, explained the mayor, who expects a resolution of the matter soon.RELATED
