Trump Flies to NYC, Trashes Bill de Blasio En Route: ‘Worst Mayor in America’

President Donald Trump just arrived in New York City for a fundraiser on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. And just before touching down in the Big Apple, POTUS took time out to bash the city’s chief executive.

In a video rant recorded on Air Force One and posted to twitter, the President let loose on New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio — who officially tossed his hat into the ring, Thursday, for the Democratic nomination in 2020.

“I can’t believe it!” Trump said. “I just heard that the worst mayor in the history of New York City, and without question the worst mayor in the United States, is now running for president.

“It will never happen — I’m pretty good at predicting things like that. I would be very surprised to see him in there for a long period, but it’s just not going to happen.”

For Trump, the comments were a follow-up to his morning Tweet in which he referred to the mayor as “another beauty.”

“If you like high taxes and if you like crime you can vote for him,” Trump said. “But most people aren’t into that. So I wish him luck. But really it’d be better off if you got back to New York City and did your job for the little time you have left.

“Good luck, do well.”
