“Inciting an insurrection against the United States government clearly constitutes criminal activity,” de Blasio said.
“So, the city of New York will no longer have anything to do with the Trump Organization.”Trump addressed thousands of supporters on Jan. 6, reiterating his unsupported claim that his re-election was stolen.
He urged them to march to the Capitol where Congress was affirming Joe Biden’s election by the Electoral College.
