New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio is planning to announce his bid for president this week. To draw attention he thought it wise to stage a Green New Deal Press Conference at Trump Tower. He was met at the Tower by a large group of Trump supporters. De Blasio took to Twitter expressing his outrage on how his press conference went.
“.@realDonaldTrump is running scared from NYC’s Green New Deal. The temper tantrum his organization threw at Trump Tower today is proof. You’re on notice, Donald: we won’t let you mortgage our future for your real estate. Fix your buildings or pay the price. We WILL collect.”
He attracted the attention of Eric Trump who quickly dispatched the Mayor.
“(1/4)The fact that the Mayor of a major city would attack an iconic organization (which employs thousands of hardworking New York taxpayers) for his own political gain is an abuse of power, unethical and simply counterintuitive.”
“(2/4) Most Mayors do all they can to support great businesses – here in NYC, businesses are attacked for headlines and “political points” and is this very mentality that is causing people to leave our great city in droves.”
“(3/4)@NYCMayor if you ever think there is an initiative that would be great for New York, I would be happy to come to city hall and visit you anytime. But forcing a pop-up press conference in our lobby is simply childish.”
“(4/4) Maybe one of these days we can work together, an invitation which remains open to you anytime. I wish you and our great city the best.”
“Spare me. You and your dad have spent decades evading taxes and stiffing your workers. NYC’s Green New Deal is one law the Trumps won’t get away with breaking. Fix your buildings or pay the price.”
But Eric Trump was ready for him.
“Spare me?” Eric Trump asked. “First you have never created a job in your life. Second, our great city has gone to shit under your leadership. Crime is up, the men & women of the NYPD detest you, homelessness is rampant, our streets are dirty and people are leaving our city in record numbers.”
His brother Don Trump Jr jumped in and added his two cents.
“Owned!!! It seems @NYCMayor has been a bit too busy getting whopping crowds of 4 & 5 people in the primary states to see the damage he’s inflicted on NYC. I look forward to his presidential run being even less successful than his time as mayor… if that’s even possible,” Trump Jr. slammed.”
Eric Trump just gave De Blasio a taste of what it’s going to be like going against Donald Trump. It appears De Blasio is not going to stand a chance against the president.
