‘Oh No’: Trump Slams ‘Part Time Mayor’ De Blasio After He Drops From Primary Race

President Donald Trump took a shot at New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio after the latter dropped from the 2020 Democratic presidential primary race as he proclaimed that the Big Apple was “devastated.”

De Blasio announced his departure from his party’s presidential nomination race after a campaign that saw him unable to break past one percent in the polls. He broke the news during an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Friday.

The New York City mayor called running for president “an extraordinary experience” but added that it was “clearly” not his “time” to ascend to the Oval Office.

“But, I have to tell you, at the same time, I feel like I’ve contributed all I can to this primary election,” said de Blasio. “And it’s clearly not my time, so I’m going to end my presidential campaign.”

Check it out:

The Democratic mayor confirmed the end of his campaign in a Friday tweet but said that the “fight on behalf of working people” was not over yet.

After de Blasio’s announcement, Trump tweeted out that people in the Big Apple were “devastated” by the “really big political news.”

The president also blasted de Blasio as the “part time mayor of New York City.”

“Oh no, really big political news, perhaps the biggest story in years! Part time Mayor of New York City, [de Blasio], who was polling at a solid ZERO but had tremendous room for growth, has shocking dropped out of the Presidential race. NYC is devastated, he’s coming home!”

The news spread quickly on Twitter, with many users weighing in on the ending of de Blasio’s presidential campaign.

“So close,” wrote Tim Murtaugh, Trump’s re-election campaign director of communications.

The Hill contributor Joe Borelli asked where “the de Blasio voter” will go.

Even “The Daily Show” got their shot in at de Blasio, proclaiming that their “hearts will go on.”

Check out some of the other reactions:

De Blasio’s departure leaves 19 candidates in the Democratic primary, including Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), and Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), as well as frontrunner former Vice President Joe Biden.

New Yorkers, like Californians, are either too lazy, or too ignorant to see what they’ve done.

You're right. deBlasio changed his name twice before finding one he liked. He was born Warren Wilhelm, Jr. Changed it to Warren deBlasio Wilhelm. Then, so far as of today, is called Bill deBlasio. Stay tuned for any updates. Maybe he'll next be known as Bill deBlasio Clinton to pander for votes; or, maybe Barry deBlasio Hussein.

New York deserves this cockroach. De Blassio isn’t even his real name.

DeBlasio deserves all the criticism he got, even the local TV stations were reporting with a daily report of where was he each day out to show how little he was involved in the running of the city of NYC.

Hmm. I wonder if Bill DeBlah will offer an endorsement. A former socialist leader got the trains to run on time. DeBlah couldn’t get the subways to run, period. The same for reliable power to his citizens.

It’s a good thing he has that part-time mayor gig to fall back on .
