New York City mayor Bill De Blasio continued his attacks on President Trump on Thursday, calling for a debate between the two and indicating that Trump’s home city will not welcome him back after he leaves the White House.
“When his presidency is over, really soon, he will not be welcome back in New York City!” the longshot 2020 candidate told BuzzFeed. De Blasio also argued that Trump, a Queens native who has built his real estate empire in the Big Apple, didn’t “understand the city.”
“Donald Trump seems to have a lot to say about New York City lately. So I issued him a challenge last night,” De Blasio tweeted on Friday, alongside the video of his comments.
De Blasio’s tweet was just the latest salvo in an ongoing feud that started after President Trump called out the New York City mayor for allegedly not doing enough to protect his police officers.
Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, who also serves as Trump’s attorney, also called out De Blasio following multiple incidents in which police officers were doused with water.
“This disrespect for the uniform in NYC is result of a Democrat-Progressive (Retrogressive)-Socialist Mayor,” Giuliani tweeted on Tuesday. “This is what happens with knee-jerk disrespect for police. It will only get worse until these Left wing idiots are defeated.”
De Blasio responded to the attacks by attributing decreasing crime to Trump’s departure from the city. He also told Giuliani he didn’t tolerate disrespect for New York police officers and claimed the former mayor helped create a divide between the police and city communities.
“The truth is crime’s NEVER been lower in New York City and that’s because we’re bridging the divide between police and communities — a divide @RudyGiuliani helped create,” he tweeted.
Mayor De Blasio must believe that his constituency and the rest of Americans have a short memory regarding how he has treated “New York’s Finest” in the past.
The New York Post reported on January 3, 2015 that
Thousands of NYPD cops turned their backs on Mayor de Blasio on Sunday outside a Brooklyn funeral home as he eulogized a murdered NYPD officer inside.
As de Blasio addressed the loved ones of Detective Wenjian Liu in the Aievoli Funeral Home in Bensonhurst, the sea of blue watching the funeral on huge TV screens outside showed their disgust for Hizzoner by turning around as he spoke.
Cops have been furious with de Blasio mainly since the grand-jury rulings involving the deaths of Staten Island dad Eric Garner and Missouri teen Michael Brown, two unarmed black men who died during confrontations with white cops. Neither cop was criminally charged.
The mayor said afterward that he worries about how his son, Dante, who is half-black, might be treated by police because of his race.
The cops say de Blasio’s comment is just another instance in which he has added to the anti-cop sentiment in the city.
Liu and Officer Rafael Ramos were sitting in their patrol car in Bedford-Stuyvesant on Dec. 20 when deranged, cop-hating killer Ismaaiyl Brinsley came up from behind to execute them. Brinsley committed suicide before cops could catch him.
Officers first turned their backs to de Blasio when he visited the hospital where Ramos and Liu were treated. They then also turned turned their backs to him outside the church where Ramos’ funeral was held Dec. 27.
NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton asked officers not to repeat that silent protest at Liu’s funeral Sunday.
De Blasio, for all of his Marxist Bravado and self- promoting propaganda, is presently being vilified as the worst mayor in the history of the Big Apple, eclispsing even the ineffectual David Dinkins.
The city is filthy and thugs, as exhibited over the last week, are being allowed to taunt and disrespect the NYPD, while it is all being caught on cellphones, much to the delight of the rest of the cop-hating trash in the neighborhoods.
Meanwhile, those who can afford to “Escape From New York” are continuing to get the heck out of Dodge due to an exorbitant tax rate, hitting both businesses and individuals alike.
Great legacy you’re building there, Mr. Mayor.
And, what is President Trump’s “New York Legacy”?
According to Steve Cuozzo, in an article written for the New York Post on February 7, 2016…
…Trump doesn’t get enough credit for being a transformative planner who is in love with the city. No matter how many times they watch “Taxi Driver,” younger New Yorkers and older ones who arrived recently have no idea of what the city was actually like in the mid-1970s through the mid-’90s. Notwithstanding Studio 54 and a short-lived Wall Street boom, the metropolis was reeling. Rampant street crime, AIDS, corporate flight and physical decay brought confidence to an all-time low.
Trump waded into a landscape of empty Fifth Avenue storefronts, the dust-bowl mugging ground that was Central Park and a Wall Street area seemingly on its last legs as companies moved out.
Except in Battery Park City, which was then as remote as an offshore island, few other developers built anything but plain-vanilla office and apartment buildings. Trump — almost by force of will — rode to the rescue. Expressing rare faith in the future, he was instrumental in kick-starting the regeneration of neighborhoods and landmarks almost given up for dead.
So, like all Marxist Political Leaders, De Blasio is a destroyer, gaining wealth and fame, while the citizens or “proletariat” suffer.
On the other hand, while he was a New York Businessman and Entrepreneur, Donald J. Trump was a builder, making the city he lived and worked in better for his fellow citizens, providing employment and making the city more beautiful while he was at it.
And, that gentle readers, is the difference between Far Left Democratic Politicians like Mayor Bill De Blasio and President Donald J. Trump.
De Blasio promises Utopia but delivers decay and decadence.
Trump promises hard work and greatness…
Until He Comes,
