New York, Portland, Seattle, and Washington DC, speak out against political attack
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan and Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser today issued a joint statement in response to President Donald Trump threatening to revoke federal funding from cities.
“Our cities, and the millions of Americans who we represent, are not President Trump’s political pawns. We are confronting unprecedented challenges—fighting back a pandemic and economic devastation without another stimulus. Now, instead of leadership from the White House, we are faced with new attacks that are unlawful, unconstitutional and will be undoubtedly defeated in court. President Trump needs to wake up to the reality facing our cities—and our entire country—and realize he is not above the law.”
We think Mayor Bill de Blasio is fighting a losing battle not only with the Governor of New York State, but this is probably why he was the first candidate out of the Democratic Presidential Primary.
Wake up Mayor de Blasio and realize that it is you who has put New York City in the place it is today, and not others. This is why New Yorkers from the city are leaving, because of you Mayor de Blasio and your policies that are if they haven't ruined New York City already.
Take what is being offered to you from President Trump so there can be Law and Order back in New York City, and the people who are still here can feel are again.
