President Trump’s son, Eric Trump, went on a Twitter tirade this week, ripping far-left New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and saying that the city has “gone to s***” under the mayor’s leadership.
The tirade came after de Blasio held a press conference Monday to promote his own “Green New Deal” that will “ban classic glass and steel skyscrapers,” among other “inefficient” things. The mayor was supposed deliver his message in front of New York City’s Trump Tower, but was forced by protesters to move inside to the lobby.
“His buildings are one of the biggest polluters in New York City,” de Blasio said of President Trump. “Cut your emissions or we’ll cut something you really care about: We’ll take your money.”
In a post on Twitter, de Blasio wrote: “Spare me. You and your dad have spent decades evading taxes and stiffing your workers. NYC’s Green New Deal is one law the Trumps won’t get away with breaking. Fix your buildings or pay the price.”
The mayor’s attack prompted Eric Trump to hit back.
“Spare me? First you have never created a job in your life. Second, our great city has gone to shit under your leadership. Crime is up, the men & women of the NYPD detest you, homelessness is rampant, our streets are dirty and people are leaving our city in record numbers,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
On the day of the mayor’s press conference, Eric Trump also laid into him.
“1/4 The fact that the Mayor of a major city would attack an iconic organization (which employs thousands of hardworking New York taxpayers) for his own political gain is an abuse of power, unethical and simply counterintuitive,” he wrote.
“(2/4) Most Mayors do all they can to support great businesses – here in NYC, businesses are attacked for headlines and ‘political points,’ and is this very mentality that is causing people to leave our great city in droves,” he continued.
“(3/4) @NYCMayor if you ever think there is an initiative that would be great for New York, I would be happy to come to city hall and visit you anytime. But forcing a pop-up press conference in our lobby is simply childish,” he said further.
“(4/4) Maybe one of these days we can work together, an invitation which remains open to you anytime. I wish you and our great city the best,” Trump wrote.
Meanwhile, de Blasio’s press conference did not go as planned.
“Trump Tower staff turned up the dial on the PA system just moments before the mayor entered the 5th Avenue building,” the New York Post reports. “Tony Bennett’s ‘Stranger in Paradise’ and Frank Sinatra’s ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’ blasted through the speakers during the event.”
