Rudy Giuliani: Where is NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio?

By Fox News, June  2020

Former New York City Mayor and President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani railed against the Big Apple’s current mayor, Bill de Blasio, saying none of the riots would have happened in the area if he was “vaguely competent,” and called for him to step down.

“I haven’t seen de Blasio at the scene of any of these things. I would have been at the scene of every single one – and there would have only been one, and it would have been over.”

Giuliani, a Republican who ran the city from 1994 to 2001, told FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo that de Blasio, a Democrat, needs to “get out of the way and let someone activate the police department” or else he believes lives will be lost.

“We’ve watched now over and over again people looting, throwing Molotov cocktails, burning cars and now putting our police in hospitals and virtually no major arrests are made,” Giuliani said Tuesday morning on “Mornings with Maria.” “The mayor should step down. He is incompetent … In other cities, they’re activating the National Guard. In New York City we have to activate the New York City Police Department

Protests flared in response to the death of George Floyd, a black man who died last Monday after a white Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee on Floyd’s neck for at least eight minutes.

Floyd, who was in handcuffs at the time, died after the officer ignored bystander shouts to get off him and Floyd’s cries that he couldn’t breathe. His death, captured on video, sparked days of protests in Minneapolis that have spread to cities around America.

“Who has seen these mayors at night?” he asked. “Do you think if I had riots like this I’d be home at night? You could see me only in the morning at a safe press conference? Or do you think you see me there with the cops?”

Public and elected officials have said the protests have devolved in some cases into organized riots, including some led by white supremacy and Antifa groups.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday demanded New York leaders call up the National Guard to defend the city.

“CALL UP THE NATIONAL GUARD,” Trump wrote on Twitter in all-caps with the hashtag #SAVENYC.

The president criticized leaders for placing an 11:00 p.m. curfew on the city, arguing it was too late.

“New York City put on an 11:00 P.M. CURFEW last night,” he wrote. “No wonder they ripped the place apart. Should be 7:00 P.M.”

Trump commented after New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a press conference New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio refused assistance from the state’s National Guard on Monday night, which led to widespread rioting and looting.

“The NYPD and New York City mayor did not do their job last night,” Cuomo said. “I think the Mayor underestimates the scope of the problem and the duration of the problem. What happened in NYC was inexcusable.”

Cuomo could overrule de Blasio to bring in the National Guard, but he indicated that he would not do it.

“I don’t think we’re at the point,” he said.
