New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is running for the Democratic nomination for the 2020 presidential election. The NYPD think it’s a bad idea. Patrick J. Lynch, president of the Police Benevolent Association of the City of New York,issued a statement on Twitter,
“After six years of disrespect for the police officers who keep our city safe, it’s perfectly clear how the mayor treats men and women in uniform. As commander-in-chief, he would be an unmitigated disaster…
…It is laughable that a mayor who has shown no interest in running New York City for six years now says he wants to mismanage the entire country,..
…While the mayor of our nation’s largest city is busy running around Iowa and getting upstaged by the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, there are real problems here at home. New York City Police officers are continuing to suffer with wages 30% below market rate because the mayor has totally checked out of our contract process…”
Trump also weighed in saying de Blasio is considered the worst mayor in America.
How can the Democrats honestly think they have the right toolkit to fight 2020? De Blasio would have lost many Americans for his stunt to light up buildings to celebrate the passing of a late term abortion bill. All class.
