NYC plans to paint ‘Black Lives Matter’ outside Trump Tower

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio says that the city plans to paint “Black Lives Matter” on Fifth Avenue right in front of Trump Tower.

“We’re going to take this moment in history and amplify it by taking the ‘Black Lives Matter’ symbolism by putting it all over this city, including in front of Trump Tower,” said de Blasio. “It’s an important message to the whole nation and obviously we want the president to hear it because he’s never shown respect for those three words. We’re going to make it really clear to the president. It’s going to be right outside his doorstep.”

Trump fired back at de Blasio on Wednesday saying the city should use the money on the police department instead.

“NYC is cutting Police $’s by ONE BILLION DOLLARS, and yet the @NYCMayor is going to paint a big, expensive, yellow Black Lives Matter sign on Fifth Avenue, denigrating this luxury Avenue,” Trump tweeted. “This will further antagonize New York’s Finest, who LOVE New York & vividly remember the horrible BLM chant, ‘Pigs in a Blanket, Fry ‘Em Like Bacon,’” he continued. “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.”

The New York City Council recently removed $1 billion from the NYPD’s spending budget in 2021. De Blasio says the money will be shifted to programs that assist youth and community development.

The mayor praised the change in the budget and noted that the city is taking money from the police and putting it into youth initiatives, while taking other measures, such as getting rid of solitary confinement in the city jails.

“We have to be in a constant place of reform,” de Blasio said.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said the president belives black lives matter but takes issue with the organization.

“All black lives do matter, he agrees with that sentiment, but what he doesn’t agree with is an organization that chants ‘pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon’ about our police officers, our valiant heroes that are out on the street protecting us each and every day,” McEnany said.

    de Blasio is a child throwing a tantrum, Painting this will make HIM feel better and hopes all protesters will love him. They are playing him for a fool and will continue to ask for more. Be the adult and stop this nonsense now.

    What a stooge!! Everyone knows De Blasio is a Maxist socialist. For those folks, chaos is their slogan. Why would anyone paint Black Lives Matter anywhere within the city. This does nothing more than foment division and promote terrorism within the City.
    He then combines this with cutting the budget for the New York City by $1B!! Even a 3rd grader can tell you how bad things will become as only these two stupid actions are implemented. Evidently the people of New York don’t care.

    The mayor doesn’t care about the BLM movement! It’s just another ploy to cover his failure in office to stem the upswing in crime and his failure to control the Corona virus! He has anarchists taking over a park and telling him what to do! And when he cuts the $1.5 billion from the police budget, NYC will burn! Painting a fracking two bit saying, that really isn’t true, coined by anarchists, won’t do a damn thing to improve relations, lower crime, or combat the virus! The hypocrisy of him, his council and the BLM is that Black Lives Don’t Matter! Just talk to the survivors of black on black violence that runs rampant in major cities like NYC, Chicago, Flint, LA, and Frisco! The BLM has only taken lives! More white than black. And they have taken black lives with no remorse! BLM is strictly a terrorist group dedicated to overthrowing local governments, looting, burning, and killing!

    I’m with Trump. de Blasio is a child & he has been acting like one ever since he became Mayor. How he got elected is beyond me. Unfortunately the City of New York is going to have a hard time in the future until they can get rid of him & get the Police back on their side. They will be lucky is the police even want to be on their side after all this!

    de blasio is a total jerk. he has over stepped his authority. he hopes his stupidity will fit in with the blm ,which is a terrorist organization, so black voters will support him. I believe most rational black voters in NY are sick or his behavior and will vote him out as a charlatan. This is not about blm in the literal sense, because not only do blm, but ALL lives matter. This organization is a racist organization and if you don’t subscribe to their demands they will assault you verbally and physically. This has been proven time and time again. Just take a look at Seattle, NYC,LA, oh, you know all the locations where they have shut down free speech in order to make THEIR point. Where they have terrorized the people, looted and then burned down buildings, and torched cars. Where they have injured and even killed innocent people. All in the name of blm—Really?????

This fat mayor should. resign immediately or looters should take away his security for mayor. Where did she come from? Instead of governing for a safe streets in NYC, he is going backwards.

    This is the kind of behavior American citizens can expect form the Democratic Party. However, even worst, why do New York City citizens continue to vote for unpatriotic Democrats whose first goal is to patronize the Black Lives Matters, and second, the security of their lust for absolute power over the United States and total control of the American people? It hard to believe that New York City dwellers are so blind that they cannot see beyond their noses.

    I would give Deblasio more credit, if he painted ” Black baby’s lives matter”. But, deblasio is ignoring, what Trump, and Dr. Carson are doing. I have never seen any president, who has done more to raise our Black brothers lives, and worth. And, In spite of all the Media’s efforts to paint Trump as a racist, the media has forgotten that Trump believes in the Black community, and he believes that, given the right encouragement, The Black community will rise with all americans to a more prosperous america. We need our brothers to understand: Until the black community welcomes the efforts of Americans to bring our standards up, along with the black community, the words “all men are created equal”, are just words. We need the black community to be empowered, educated, productive, and, happy. This is not racist, its backing up, that, we believe in standards.

    Everyone in America has the opportunity to make their own way, it means we must work for what we want to accomplish. The only thing holding you back is yourself. Every American, regardless of color or ethnic background has the same opportunity. I am 85 years old and throughout my life I have worked, and another one. starting when I was 14 years old up until I finally retired completely at the age of 74. Whenever I Lost a job I went out im mJGediately and founder another one. I AI am no longer in good health,having had 4 heart attacks, open heart surgery, quad heart by pass among other health problems. I NEVER gave up. I am not an exception, most Americans regardless of color have done the same thing you can also do it. Put your mind to it and get a job and support yourself and your family, you will be stronger for it.
