[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Donald Trump, the New York multi-billionaire and 2016 presidential contender currently leading the Republican field is a polarizing figure. The brash real estate developer has ruffled the feathers of both the left and some on the right as he has vocally denounced the problem of illegal immigration and of moderate Republican John McCain who has allowed some of the worst failings of the VA to occur in his home state of Arizona.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Despite the condemnations coming from soft Republicans and Democrats, Trump has refused to apologize for his bold candor and as a result, has risen in the polls to lead the Republican contenders.
Still, many take issue with The Donald and his remarks and socialist New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is one of them.
De Blasio claims that the City of New York will due no further business with Trump after his comments. However, the mayor admitted that it might be easier said than done as Trump is currently entangled with the City of New York and the city may be unable to extract itself from the contracts.
“My impression is that unless there has been some breaking of a contract or something that gives us a legal opportunity to act, I’m not sure we have a specific course of action,” de Blasio told reporters on Monday.
“But we’re certainly not looking to do any business with him going forward,” the mayor clarified.
Currently, Trump maintains contracts on several deals including a golf course in the Bronx, two ice rinks and the Central Park carousel.
De Blasio also blasted the mogul for his comments on McCain, saying,
“What Mr. Trump said about Senator McCain was unacceptable. Senator McCain is a war hero by any measure, and he really should apologize for that.” However, despite the media uproar, Trump, while denouncing McCain’s record of inaction for veterans in his home, stated explicitly that McCain was a war hero.
Trump’s campaign fired back, “It’s very sad to hear this mayor speaking about Donald Trump so negatively, considering how much Donald Trump has done for New York City.”
In today’s America, it is apparently a form of discrimination for a business to politely decline making a cake for a same-sex couple, but it is, evidently, not a form of discrimination for a partisan mayor to wage a vendetta against a businessman because of his political leanings.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
