Donald Trump has ridden to the rescue of the Central Park Carousel.
Officials said yesterday that Trump was handed the reins to the merry-go-round this month after the longtime operator, New York One LLC, was bounced by the Parks Department when maintenance issues couldn't be resolved, according to the New York Post.
Trump is paying a fee of $7,500 a month for the next six months.
