NYC mayor says he'll decide this week on presidential run

  • Protesters gather as Mayor Bill de Blasio holds a Green New Deal rally at Trump Tower in New York City

The mayor, who is rumored to be planning a 2020 presidential run, held a rally outside Trump Tower on Monday to promote New York City's Green New Deal.

The message was supposed to be delivered in front of the iconic tower, but, as de Blasio put it, the weather failed to "cooperate", so he was forced to make his threats in Trump territory.

Almost 70 percent of New York City's greenhouse gas emissions come from its buildings. "Cut your emissions or we'll cut something you really care about: We'll take your money".

The president's son Eric Trump, who is helping to run the Trump Organization during his father's presidency, responded to de Blasio in a tweet late Monday afternoon. The buildings that exceed the new pollution thresholds include Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue, and the Trump Building on Wall Street.

Supporters flanked the mayor holding "NYC Green New Deal" posters, occasionally offering chants of "Our planet not your profit!" while pro-Trump protesters lingered around the edges shouting expletives and waving handmade signs that read "Trump 2020" and "Worst Mayor Ever."

"Clearly the Trump Organization is a little sensitive to the fact that we're calling them out for what they are doing to the climate but we are not backing down", said de Blasio, the Post reports. "Anyone that has a problem with saving the planet, I have a problem with them".

"We're tackling climate change head-on with NYC's Green New Deal and are the first city in the world to require all big buildings to cut their emissions, with the goal of a carbon neutral city by 2050". De Blasio had to shout to be heard. Part of the legislation calls for buildings of 25,000 square feet or more, which account for almost a third of the city's carbon emissions, to increase their energy efficiency.

Trump's properties have always been identified as leading consumers of energy, although city officials say some other buildings are on track for even heavier fines. "If Trump does not clean up these buildings, he will owe approximately $2.1 million in fines every year starting in 2030".

Upgrades to buildings in order to meet the new standards are expected to cost owners around $4 billion - a figure that has the city's powerful real estate lobby up in arms.

According to data shared with the Guardian, eight Trump properties in New York City do not comply with new regulations created to slash greenhouse gas emissions.

NY has positioned itself as a bulwark against Trump administration attempts to dismantle action to address climate change.

"Politicians in Washington don't have to look across the aisle in Congress to know what a Green New Deal is - they can look across the country, to Los Angeles", Garcetti said.
