Trump's company removes his name from Central Park ice rinks ahead of skating season

Does Donald Trumpís company think the Trump name is bad for business?

The presidentís eponymous business has scrubbed his name from a couple of ice rinks in Central Park that he has owned since the 1980s, according to city officials.


Meghan Lalor, a spokeswoman for the Department of Parks and Recreation, told the Daily News on Tuesday that the Trump Organization notified the city in late August that it planned to remove the presidentís last name from the rinks it operates in Central Park, one on the southern end officially called the Wollman Rink and one on the northern end called the Lasker Rink.

The Trump Organization did not ďprovide rationaleĒ for the change, which had not been requested by the city, Lalor said.

A spokeswoman for the Trump Organization did not return a request for comment.

1. People should picket near those ice rinks with signs informing people who owns them

Don't let them hide.

3. Trump doesn't own those rinks

The Wollman Rink thing is complex, but it boils down to: Trump rebuilt the rinks, and the city allows the Trump Organization to manage them. But as with everything else in Central Park, they belong to the City of New York.
