New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio got into a feud with Eric Trump over the city’s new Green New Deal initiative, which has specifically targeted the Trump Organization.
“Spare me. You and your dad have spent decades evading taxes and stiffing your workers,” de Blasio tweeted after the Trump Organization’s executive vice president accused him of abusing power in going after President Trump’s companies “for his own political gain.”
“NYC’s Green New Deal is one law the Trumps won’t get away with breaking,” the mayor continued. “Fix your buildings or pay the price.”
Eric Trump quickly fired back, calling out de Blasio for making New York go “to sh*t under your leadership.”
“Spare me? First you have never created a job in your life,” Eric Trump wrote. “Second, our great city has gone to sh*t under your leadership. Crime is up, the men & women of the NYPD detest you, homelessness is rampant, our streets are dirty and people are leaving our city in record numbers.“
On Monday, the Mayor held a presser at Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue, and announced the fees that the Trump Organization will face for emissions at their properties. The event was held as part of de Blasio’s carbon emission-reducing Green New Deal policy.
“The fact that the Mayor of a major city would attack an iconic organization (which employs thousands of hardworking New York taxpayers) for his own political gain is an abuse of power, unethical and simply counterintuitive,” Eric Trump tweeted yesterday.
