De Blasio Doubles Down on Threat to Paint ‘Black Lives Matter’ in Front of Trump Tower

Trent Baker, Breitbart, July 1, 2020

Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio discussed the new $88 billion city budget in the wake of George Floyd’s death while in Minneapolis police custody that includes significant changes to the New York Police Department.

De Blasio emphasized the “profound change” that would be taking place in New York City to help create a “safer city in the future.” The mayor also outlined that some of the funding being taken from the police would go to youth initiatives, and a portion will go to painting “Black Lives Matter” in front of Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue to send a “clear” message to President Donald Trump.
