-- The Trump Organization says the City forced it to close the two ice skating rinks it manages in Central Park tomorrow, more than a month before they normally wrap up for the season. The City moved to terminate its concession contracts with the Trump Organization following the deadly riots at the Capitol.

The contracts for the Wollman and Lasker rinks were set to expire in April, but the City reportedly moved the date up to February 26. And this means an early end to skating programs that serve low- income children and people with special needs.

BRYAN KIMES: This has been part of his Saturday ritual. It's just been an amazing experience. And when we heard the news yesterday that this would be the last practice, it was just devastating.

-- The Trump Organization says the rink closures will also put hundreds of people out of work. We reached out to the city for comment, but have not heard back.
