De Blasio Faces Protesters at Green New Deal Rally
Bill de Blasio faced a crowd of angry protesters Monday at a Green New Deal rally inside the lobby of Trump Tower, where the New York City Mayor threatened the President’s company with huge fines if his buildings don’t comply with new environmental standards.
“His buildings are one of the biggest polluters in New York City,” de Blasio said of President Trump. “Cut your emissions or we’ll cut something you really care about… We’ll take your money.”
About a dozen pro-Trump protesters, however, blasted music and shouted down the mayor, carrying placards with slogans such as “Worst Mayor Ever,” “Failed Mayor,” and “Trump 2020.”
