Trump Organization Sues New York City For Wrongful Termination, Alleges De Blasio’s Move Was ‘Politically Motivated’

By

The Trump Organization filed a lawsuit against New York City, alleging that Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio had no right to terminate the company’s contracts earlier this year.

The company, which former President Donald Trump led until he took office in 2017, argued that de Blasio terminated the contracts for political purposes, according to ABC News. The lawsuit mainly takes issue with the termination of the Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point contract, which wasn’t set to expire for another decade.

“The City has no right to terminate our contract,” the Trump Organization said in a statement Monday, according to ABC News. “Mayor de Blasio’s actions are purely politically motivated, have no legal merit, and are yet another example of the mayor’s efforts to advance his own partisan agenda and interfere with free enterprise.”
