Trump Joins the Rest of the Internet in Mocking De Blasio’s WH Bid: ‘Dems Are Getting Another Beauty’

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio received a brutal welcome to the 2020 presidential primary after announcing his campaign Thursday morning.

De Blasio joined 23 other Democratic candidates in the race to take on President Donald Trump for his seat in the Oval Office. In his announcement video, de Blasio touted many of the far-left policies he pushed in New York City, including universal health care, mandated paid leave, and an increase to the minimum wage. He even bragged about his hotdog-banning Green New Deal.

Watch de Blasio’s announcement:

Although de Blasio is clearly trying to position himself as a far-left candidate who can match President Trump’s New York attitude, it didn’t take hold following his announcement. The mayor was lit up on social media with no one pulling punches.

His potential opponent blasted him as the “worst mayor” in the country and told people to vote for him if they enjoy paying taxes and high crime rates.

The president wasn’t alone in slamming de Blasio. Twitter was a storm of anti-de Blasio jokes and questions for why the mayor even got in the race at this point. Even the New York Post was laughing at the mayor.

His own constituents were especially outspoken, with several New Yorkers calling out his record as mayor and their distaste for his presidential ambitions.

Some even questioned if the mayor had broken the law by using what appeared to be city property for his own political ambitions. De Blasio’s announcement video was filmed in the back of an SUV which looked to be his city-issued vehicle.

This is probably not the warm welcome de Blasio was hoping for when he entered the race this morning. It is still unclear how de Blasio will shake out in the primary. More than three-quarters of his constituents in New York City didn’t even want him to get into the race as of April.
