  • De Blasio announces 2020 presidential run

"Donald Trump is playing a big con on America. Bill de Blasio of NYC, considered the worst mayor in the us, will supposedly be making an announcement for president today", Trump tweeted early Thursday.

The president continued, "He is a JOKE, but if you like high taxes & crime, he's your man. NYC HATES HIM!"

De Blasio's constituents have not appeared excited about the prospect of their mayor running for president. "We need a solid mayor who's going to take care of business for all New Yorkers", said Rev. David Brawley. We know his playbook. They married in 1994 and have two children, Chiara and Dante.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, who's looking to step into de Blasio's seat in 2021, was more diplomatic.

But they are also deeply intertwined, their political pasts - and perhaps futures - connected to the city they call home.

"Who hasn't told Bill de Blasio that he shouldn't run for president?" asked New York Magazine.

Got that? De Blasio is too far Left for most of America, but not revolutionary enough about it for many of his fellow Dems. Trump has largely avoided visiting the city, saying he doesn't want to snarl traffic, as he did during Thursday's evening rush hour. Confront him. Take him on", while delivering his final message: "As president, I will take on the wealthy, I will take on the big corporations.

Mayor Bill de Blasio announces the expansion of the "Meatless Mondays" program across all NYC public schools that will begin in fall. "We're coming for you".

This time, de Blasio's dumping on private property earned him a rebuke from other New York City politicians more wary of government land seizures.

"I wish the Mayor the best of luck in this endeavor, but it's important that the presidential campaign doesn't detract from the critical issues facing NY". I've known Trump's a bully for a long time. And de Blasio's hometown press has, so far, delighted in disparaging his presidential hopes.

"I got elected mayor by 73% of the vote originally, reelected with 67% of the vote", de Blasio stated.

"Over many decades of study, scientists have reached an overwhelming consensus that climate change is occurring now and is caused by human activities", the mayor's office said in the statement. He dropped a groundhog that died soon afterward. President Trump - you're on notice. "And a lot of Americans believe this is not a fair country right now".

Earlier this month, the New York Times editorial board warned that a de Blasio candidacy would raise ethical questions about political donations he continues to receive.
