New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has reportedly confiscated a Donald Trump golf course in the Bronx, and the former president is absolutely furious. Trump says he’s poured millions into the course, and the current mayor is ending the partnership in a “communist” fashion.
“Now, under Mayor De Blasio, he wants to CONFISE the project from me for no reason,” Trump wrote in a lengthy statement on Twitter.
Media writer Brandon Contes reported that the golf course seizure stems from the events of the January 6 “insurgency” at the United States Capitol. After this “unforgivable act”, the Democratic mayor of Blasio announced his intention to terminate all of his city’s contracts with the Trump organization.
The FBI previously said there was no insurgency in Washington that day, but news is slowly filtering through the mayor’s office and Mediate.
Trump’s Tweet, appearing under the headline “Save America, President Donald J. Trump,” angrily refutes the confiscation: “So unfair, this is happening in Communist countries, not America!”
In addition, the 45e President explains the circumstances behind the Bronx Golf Course. He says that at the behest of former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, he transformed “a long-standing scandalous site in the Bronx” into a magnificent golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus Signature. “I invested several million dollars, in cash, in this project in order to bring it to fruition, which I did, from scratch, in record time,” the former president wrote. “Mayor De Blasio wants to withdraw it after all the work has been done so successfully and so much money has been spent.”
To replace Trump on the course, De Blasio awarded a 13-year contract to Ferry Point Links LLC to operate the course. He is would have run by the homeless shelter operator CORE Services Group, Contes reported.
Golf has already been used to undermine Trump under false pretenses this year. The PGA of America announced in January that it had stripped Trump’s golf club in New Jersey of the 2022 US PGA Championship. Bryan Armen Graham of The Guardian wrote: ‘The R&A followed suit the next day when it appeared to rule out Turnberry, the Scottish course which last hosted the Open Championship before Trump bought it, as future host of the oldest club of golf. In Trumpland it’s a worse fate than the impeachment itself. “
Graham went on to accuse Trump of anti-Mexican and anti-black racism, as well as this incendiary zinger: “A shocking embrace of violence and chaos ensured that Trump was no longer part of the future of golf. “
A representative of Trump called the removal of events from its courses a breach of contract.
