New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced in an interview with MSNBC on Wednesday, that he intends to have the words ‘Black Lives Matter’ painted on the street where Trump Tower sits. He also announced NYC will be reducing the funding and size of the NYPD.
“We’re taking a billion dollars out of the NYPD. We’re reducing the size of the NYPD, we’re reducing overtime, we’re moving some of the functions NYPD does now — they will be replaced by civilians handling those functions who can do them better. And we’re going to take that money and put it into youth initiatives,” de Blasio said.
As for painting “Black Lives Matter” on the famous street — de Blasio said he’s doing it to send a message to President Trump.
President Trump hit back at New York City’s plan to paint “Black Lives Matter” on Fifth Avenue, denouncing it a “symbol of hate” in a Wednesday morning tweet.
….horrible BLM chant, “Pigs In A Blanket, Fry ‘Em Like Bacon”. Maybe our GREAT Police, who have been neutralized and scorned by a mayor who hates & disrespects them, won’t let this symbol of hate be affixed to New York’s greatest street. Spend this money fighting crime instead!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 1, 2020
