Donald Trump and Bronx borough president Ruben Diaz, Jr. are getting along well in the wake of their successful redevelopment venture, the heavily debated 200-acre Ferry Point golf course, in the borough’s Throgs Neck area.

“Ruben Diaz … your great borough president, has been so helpful in getting this place done,” Trump said in a video played during the borough’s centennial gala this week, the New York Daily News reported.

Although Ruben Diaz, Jr. is committed to Governor Andrew Cuomo and has agreed not to endorse Trump’s possible governor candidacy, the Bronx-native supports Trump’s development efforts in the borough. After all, Trump stepped in to build the $100 million city-funded course when the original developer dropped out. Ferry Point is slated to open in the fall.

“We may not always agree politically, but we agree that big things are happening in the Bronx,” Diaz has said. [NYDN] — Angela Hunt
