New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who emerged as a progressive standard-bearer in 2013 but has struggled amid middling approval ratings to build a national profile, will enter the 2020 presidential race on Thursday, according to a source close to the mayor.

"Don't back down in the face of a bully, confront him, take him on", he said. De Blasio's administration has also implemented police reforms, paid sick leave, increases in the minimum wage and new identification cards that allow illegal immigrants to access city services.

The president added, "but if you like high taxes & crime, he's your man. NYC HATES HIM!"

But Trump did end on a positive (ish) note: "Good luck".

"And because I said con Don, here he comes and he makes his own custom video to attack me", he said.

Kevin Keith, Vice President, Amazon Devices explains, "Fire 7 is our best-selling tablet with tens of millions sold". That said, it may have had a part in making Amazon's digital assistant available hands-free with a "Hey Alexa".


De Blasio responded a few hours later with an apparent attempt to mimic Trump's habit of giving his political opponents a nickname. And you were getting your facts wrong 'cause crime actually has gone down in New York City five years in a row, and our economy is booming, we have the most jobs we've ever had in our history. "I don't know if you saw that, Mika, very low energy".

There are now more than two dozen Democrats vying for the presidential nomination, but all of them trail former Vice President Joe Biden by a significant margin. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Sen.

De Blasio's potential candidacy has generated little enthusiasm from hometown constituents so far.

"There's nothing about Donald Trump that surprises me, there's nothing about him that intimidates me", de Blasio said.

The Police Benevolent Association of the City of NY joined the press in blasting de Blasio, warning he would be an "unmitigated disaster" if elected president.
