Trump Is Losing His New York Golf Course As A Result Of His Role In The Capitol Insurrection

A couple of days after the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol which left five people — including a member of the Capitol Police Department — dead, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio made it clear that failed, one-term former President Donald Trump would indeed be paying a price for the role he played in the horror that took place on that terrible day, announcing:

“The City of New York will not be associated with those unforgivable acts in any shape, way or form.”

With that, the mayor terminated the Trump Organization’s licensing deal for Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point Park in the Bronx.

Trump and his company sued to reinstate the deal, which expires on Sunday, but it seems almost certain that a judge will soon rule New York City acted well within its rights, making the golf course “another likely casualty to stem from former President Donald Trump’s actions on January 6 before rioters stormed the US Capitol,” according to CNN.

“The case highlights how Trump’s activities during the final days of his presidency continue to haunt him as he navigates numerous criminal investigations and business challenges linked to the Capitol riot. The fight over the golf course is one of the latest examples of Trump’s political rhetoric clashing with his business interests.”

The Trump Organization has operated the golf course at Ferry Point Park since 2012, and it has done extremely well financially, pulling in over $8 million in revenue during the first 10 months of 2021. Making the course especially valuable is the fact that it was designed by golfing legend Jack Nicklaus.

New York City would appear to have the PGA’s approval when it comes to stripping the course from Trump’s control, as there’s a clause which allows the PGA to cancel any event or association that might prove “detrimental” to its brand.

Since the course was taken from Trump, Bobby Jones Links was awarded the bid to take over the property and run it with the blessings of both the city and the PGA, with Whitney Crouse, a founding partner of the new leasing agency, noting that he understands Trump may try to go after his company once they take control of the Ferry Point Park course, but he isn’t worried:

“We’ve thought long and hard about that. I’m sure something will be said, and it will be in the press, and it will be controversial but six months from now or next year when golf season begins, golfers will have forgotten the issue.

“The world will move on as it has with other things with Mr. Trump.”

The world will move on and karma will continue to kick the twice-impeached former president right in his fat ass.
