Fox News reported that two Democratic state representatives in New York are demanding that land donated by Donald Trump for a park in Westchester must have his name removed.
Trump gave this land – for free – so the government could build a state park after a deal for a golf course fell through. Not only has the government not followed through -they’ve allowed the park to languish. Now the incompetents who can’t even make use of $100 million dollars worth of land want to return Trump’s favor by removing his name.
They want to instead name it after the hard-to-find Muslim Revolutionary soldier though they did find one – Peter Salem from Massachusetts who fought in battles in New York state. There is no proof that Salem was a Muslim – no documentation supports that claim. The other suggestion is a communist. They are suggesting folk singer and communist activist Pete Seeger.
Sen. Daniel Squadron and Assemblyman Charles Lavine, both Democrats, said they will introduce legislation they’re calling the “Anything but Trump Act” and want Gov. Andrew Cuomo to remove signs for the 440-acre site in Westchester County.
This follows Trump’s insistence that there be a TEMPORARY halt to the immigration of Muslims until we know what is going on.
A spokeswoman for Trump’s campaign responded by calling the park “a $100 million gift to the state.”
“Mr. Trump is the front-runner for president of the United States of the Republican Party,” spokeswoman Hope Hicks said. “He is a proud resident of New York who employs thousands of people. The state cannot remove his name.”
Hicks also provided a statement from Trump in which he said, “If they want, they can give me the land back.”
Cuomo hasn’t responded but he recently accused Trump of “fanning the flames of hate.”
