A New York state senator is seeking to remove Donald Trump’s name from a New York state park, according to an article on LoHud.com.
Senator Daniel Squadron, D-Brooklyn, says Trump’s campaign rhetoric has been bigoted and destructive, and says Trump’s name should be removed from Donald Trump State Park – a 438-acre vacant state park stretching across Westchester and Putnam counties. Squadron has sent a letter to the governor asking to remove the name from the park.
Trump reportedly bought the land in the 1990s for $2 million in the hopes of turning it into a golf course. But when the effort failed, he donated the land to the state in 2006.
The park was officially closed in 2010 amid state budget cuts, though it never had any amenities. When the state closed the park officials said it cost just $2,500 to maintain.
