Wollman Rink, Central Park, New York
New York Leftists cheer in "unity" as a skater is attacked for waving a Trump flag at Central Park's Wollman Rink.
For those not old enough to remember, Donald Trump is the reason that rink exists! During the city’s financial crisis in the 1970s, Wollman Rink — like much of Central Park — fell into disrepair. The ice-making machinery stopped working. After spending six years and $13 million trying to renovate it, the city declared in 1986 that the project had failed and that it would have to start over from scratch. Trump, then a 39-year-old who had recently opened his namesake tower just off the Park, leapt in, making a public offer to renovate the rink himself. He would cover expenses and donate any profits to the homeless. The work was completed two months ahead of schedule and $750,000 UNDER budget.
Wonder if sleepy Joe could do that?
