ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – Two New York state lawmakers say a state park named after Donald Trump should be rechristened after what they say are discriminatory proposals from the businessman and Republican presidential candidate.
State Sen. Daniel Squadron and Assemblyman Charles Lavine say they’ll push legislation to rename Donald J. Trump State Park and want signs at the undeveloped site in Westchester and Putnam counties removed.
The two Democrats call their legislation the “Anything but Trump Act.”
The move comes after Trump proposed banning Muslim immigrants from the U.S. Squadron and Lavine say Trump’s rhetoric and proposals show he’s unworthy of having a state park named for him.
Trump donated the land to the state in 2006 after a plan to build a golf course there fell through. The park was closed in 2010.
