Mayor Bill De Blasio admitted on Monday that New York City acted too briskly when it shuttered Trump-operated ice skating rinks — only to later change course.

"I think the action was taken a little faster than it should have been because there was not an alternative in place," de Blasio said on NY1.

Hizzoner had announced last month that he was nixing the city’s contracts with the Trump Organization, alleging then-President Trump had incited the Jan.

6 Capitol riot.

But City Hall on Sunday reversed the move, which would have seen Lasker and Wollman rinks in Central Park close six weeks ahead of their typical April closing dates.


The mayor explained that while he wanted to freeze out Trump over the siege, he also didn’t mean to ruin anyone’s ice skating plans.

"What happened here is two needs that both were important and weren’t balanced the way they could have been," de Blasio said Monday.

"From the beginning, it was quite clear – after the horrible events at the Capitol in DC – that this was no longer an acceptable situation and the city moved to sever all ties with the Trump Organization."


"I always wanted to make sure that we kept ice skating available for kids and families throughout the season," he continued. "There should have been a different approach, honestly, to make sure that was done."

The city’s stunning policy reversal came after devastated skaters fumed over the weekend that they shouldn’t be kept off the ice due to the mayor’s beef with the Trump administration.

Trump’s business group, run by his sons Donald Jr. and Eric, has operated the rinks for more than three decades.
