Eric Trump Offers Bill de Blasio an Olive Branch, but NYC Mayor Says No More Business

Having long been a critic, Eric Trump exhibited uncharacteristic appreciation of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio for keeping open two ice skating rinks operated by the Trump Organization.

Last month, de Blasio announced NYC would be terminating three contracts with the Trump Organization following the U.S. Capitol attack on January 6. The decision affects the Central Park Carousel, Wollman and Lasker skating rinks, and Ferry Point Golf Course—all of which are operated by Trump's business empire.

"The President incited a rebellion against the United States government that killed five people and threatened to derail the constitutional transfer of power," Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement last month, adding the city "will not be associated with those unforgivable acts in any shape, way or form."

After the planned closure of the Central Park ice rinks were met with local criticism, de Blasio's press secretary Bill Neidhardt said the rinks will remain open for the rest of the season, but reiterated the city "will not be doing business with the Trump Organization going forward," The Associated Press reported.
