  • New York City Mayor de Blasio to join crowded Democratic presidential field

When a caller named Debbie from Long Island City asked about the botched deal to bring a new Amazon headquarters to town, de Blasio blamed the e-tail giant for pitting municipalities against each other to become the lowest bidder for the new jobs.

He also shot back when asked to respond to a characterization from a recent New York Times column characterizing him as disengaged with running the day to day operations of New York City and instead more focused on national political ambitions. He is scheduled to appear on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Thursday after launching his campaign with a video, said the source, who requested anonymity to discuss the rollout ahead of time. "I was very impressed", de Blasio said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe".

His signature policy accomplishment was establishing universal pre-kindergarten in the largest school system in the country. "Susan Sarandon Hosts Ping Pong Party for New York Mayoral Candidate Bill de Blasioon", along with the sentence "So it should come as no surprise to fans Susan Sarandon hosted a fundraiser in support of New York mayoral hopeful Bill de Blasioon on Sunday".

But the mayor has grappled with setbacks.

Trump tweeted that de Blasio is "considered the worst mayor in the U.S".

De Blasio's hometown press has, so far, delighted in disparaging his presidential hopes. A Quinnipiac University poll in April found that more than three-quarters of New Yorkers said he should not make a White House bid. "We know his playbook", de Blasio said. "De Blasio for President?"

President Trump returned fire at the mayor on Twitter, writing: "The Dems are getting another beauty to join their group".

De Blasio has already visited early-voting states, including Iowa and New Hampshire.
