De Blasio says he’d sue to stop Trump from intervening in NYC crime surge

42

De Blasio will sue the President to insure the killing and violence continues and that nothing gets in the way of the ongoing destruction of what once was the world’s greatest city.

He will to sue President Trump to stop him from taking action against the criminals who are murdering his citizens. That is because the murderers are his voters. This corruption and lawlessness is what you are voting for if you vote for any Democrat in November. Send the National Guard to New York City under the Insurrection Act, Mr. President.

De Blasio says he’d sue to stop Trump from intervening in NYC crime surge

By The New York Post, July 21, 2020

Mayor Bill de Blasio on Wednesday vowed to go to court if President Trump makes good on his promise to intervene in response to New York City’s uptick in violent crime.

The mayor blasted Trump’s threat as “bluster” at his daily press briefing.

“If he tried to do it, it would only create more problems,” the mayor said. “We would immediately take action in court to stop it.”

De Blasio later added, “I do believe it’s bluster. I do believe we can beat him in court. It would just create a lot of pain and confusion. Maybe that’s what he wants.”

On Monday, Trump called on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to end the recent crime spree in the Big Apple, saying, “if the governor is not going to do something about it, we’ll do something about it.”

Trump also floated the idea of sending in federal law enforcement officers — like he did last week in response to violent protests in Portland, Oregon. Officials there have said the presence of federal agents has only exacerbated the riots, which have been raging for more than 50 nights.

In his Monday night appearance on NY1’s “Inside City Hall,” de Blasio called the feds’ response in Portland a “fiasco” that has “totally backfired.”

I have a lot of faith in the NYPD but I do not have faith in the notion of just throwing in federal law enforcement for obviously political reasons,” he said. “That always backfires.”

Meanwhile, Police Commissioner Dermot Shea had a more diplomatic response to Trump’s threat.

“I always thank people for lending assistance, but we have the resources here,” Shea said on CNN Tuesday morning.

“I hope I’m being very clear here. We have a lot of obstacles, but we’re going to get out of this — NYPD, New York City residents, leaders all across New York City — together.”
