De Blasio: ‘Speaks Volumes’ if Athletes Won’t Visit White House
Wednesday at the scene of New York’s victory parade for the United States women’s soccer team, Bill de Blasio, 2020 presidential wannabe and New York City Mayor, was asked about athletes turning down invitations to the White House from President Trump. Some of the members of the women’s team, for example, have said they would not visit Trump if invited.
“This president has created a hyperpolitical White House,” de Blasio said on CNN’s New Day. “A lot of women have been offended for years by his treatment of women.
“It’s a place that should foster unity and respect for everyone, not hatred and division. In the end, if athletes… feel so offended they can’t go, that speaks volumes,” he added.
