Winners and losers of de Blasio's presidential campaign

New York Mayor de Blasio’s 2020 presidential bid SAVAGED by own city - ‘It’s LUDICROUS’

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was met with an organized protest accusing the him of being a "liar" who is "no friend of labor" during his presidential campaign announcement on Good Morning America Thursday morning.

That's according to Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano, echoing President Trump's reaction to some extent Thursday.

Despite the old truism that the job of NY mayor is the second toughest in America after that of the president, de Blasio - sometimes nicknamed "Big Bird" for his lanky, 6-foot, 5-inch (1.97-meter) frame - is one of the few people openly confident of his chances.

Most New Yorkers appear unenthused about de Blasio's presidential aspirations.

The interview proceeded with de Blasio arguing that he's running for the advancement of the working class, swinging at President "Con Don" Trump multiple times in the process.

De Blasio, who has been described by The New York Times as "a young leftist" in his earlier days, recently launched his own version of the controversial "Green New Deal" that recently was presented to Congress.

"I think you'd agree that the poll that actually matters is the election".

Napolitano said that Washington Post writer Charles Lane had an "interesting theory" as to why de Blasio is running.

In typical fashion, Trump hit back on Twitter, calling de Blasio "the worst mayor in the U.S".

Leeds United stuck in English Championship for another year
And after the win, Derby's players mocked Leeds spying on them by making binocular signs to their celebrating fans at Elland Road. And in their post-match celebrations, Derby players felt the need to rub salt into Leeds' wounds. "Maybe, maybe [it is sweeter]".

The President of the United States, another New Yorker, although not of the city's pool of lawmakers, also had a reaction to de Blasio's announcement.

Why de Blasio has made a decision to join at such a time is anyone's guess, but as NPR notes, now he will have to find a way to stand out in the oversaturated field in a race which many top Democrats and allies have cautioned him against entering. "I know his playbook", the mayor said. I've beaten him before, and I will do it again.

"I wish him luck".

The fact is that de Blasio's polling is just flat out bad everywhere. "Working Americans deserve better and I know we can do it because I've done it here in the largest, toughest city in this country". "There's plenty of money in this country, it's just in the wrong hands", he said, before highlighting his accomplishments as mayor and the ways that he has confronted Mr. Trump over immigration and climate change.

In a video released on Thursday, de Blasio returned to the theme of income inequality that had animated his first mayoral campaign in 2013, when he emerged as a leading voice for the burgeoning left wing that has since reshaped his party.

"I will not rest until this government serves working people", he said.

In April he hosted a fundraiser for a construction company seeking to do business in NY, the paper noted, adding that a restaurateur has previously plead guilty to bribing him. A Quinnipiac University poll in April found more than three-quarters of New Yorkers did not feel he should make a White House bid.

"It's not where you start", he told the New York Times back in January.
