NYC Mayor de Blasio Trolls Trump Tower But Asks For $7.4 Billion To Bailout His Failing Policies
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is spending his Thursday trolling President Donald Trump, by painting ‘Black Lives Matter’ in front of Trump Tower. Although, he is openly outspoken against the president’s policies he has no problem asking and practically begging for a $7.4 billion bailout for the city, due to what he says is the result of the novel coronavirus outbreak.
The New York City Mayor, who has called for defunding the NY police and whose city has seen a surge in crime, is angry that Trump has not given him the money he’s asked for, going as far as calling the President a ‘hypocrite.’
New York Republican Congressman Lee Zeldin actually pointed out that the hypocrite is actually de Blasio, not Trump.
“Fascinatingly ineffective, first of its kind strategy in progress by Mayor de Blasio: At the same time, he is both asking the President for a $7.4 Billion bailout while also trolling the President by painting this mural in front of Trump Tower in NYC,” said Zeldin on Twitter.
Zeldin is absolutely accurate. Residents in New York City are going to have to ask themselves if de Blasio’s progressive policies are worth it. In fact, I’ve already spoken to a number of friends who have either already left New York City, or who are planning to leave because of the quick and rapid deterioration of the city’s safety and security.
It’s not just Zeldin who’s calling out De Blasio, but law enforcement officials and many others, who have said his lack of leadership and policies have led to a surge in crime in the city. For example, over the weekend 11 people were killed in shooting incidents in two days. Moreover, there was 30 shootings with 10 homicides on Sunday alone. That is a staggering statistic.
Further, under de Blasio’s leadership, New York City police are leaving the force at an alarming rate. The reduction in law enforcement officers will only exacerbate the crime surge and put both civilian and police officers lives in danger.
NYPD statistics reveal that 179 officers of all ranks filed for retirement between June 29 and July 6. That is more than five times the 35 officers who did so during the same time frame last year and it is a reflection of the low morale officers in the NYPD are facing under de Blasio’s leadership.
For example, police officers stressed that the situation is endangering the lives of citizens. They noted that the 30 shootings that took place over the weekend actually victimized 48. Local news reports and a video posted on social media caught one horrific murder on-camera. It showed a man walking with his 6-year-old daughter and being gunned down on the street in broad daylight. He was holding his daughter’s hand and after he was shot the little girl ran off down the sidewalk shocked and appearing to be screaming.
The New York Post recently published that crime has exploded in the city since the disbanding of the city’s anti-crime unit of plainclothes cops. The city disbanded the unit on June 15, and there was three times as many shootings in the last two weeks of the month over the same period in 2019, as reported.
The police statistics show that during the time period after the anti-crime unit was removed there was more than a 205 percent increase in shootings in New York City, as reported.
Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik has been openly critical of de Blasio and the surge of crime in the city that has not been witnessed since the early 90s.
Kerik stated on Twitter that the ‘Black Lives Matter’ organization is “founded by admitted Marxists, inspired by cop killing terrorist Joann Chesimard, has convicted terrorist Susan Rosenberg fund raising for them.” He pointed out that de Blasio’s support for the organization is a danger to NYC.
Kerik is right and de Blasio should be removed from office.
“Their slogans: pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon; the only good cop is a dead cop; yes @NYCMayor supports them,” he added in his tweet.
