“I just heard about this crazy deal in New York City, where they want to build concrete buildings with little tiny windows,” said the President. “I built a lot of buildings, Sean. I can tell you, the bigger the windows, the better I did with it. People want big windows.”
“It’s amazing to see. They’re fawning behind [AOC]. She’s talking about the deal. I don’t know if they’re kidding. I don’t know if they’re desperate for votes or I don’t know if they’re incompetent,” he added.
When you want to do something bold, progressive and good for our city and planet, just listen to what @realDonaldTrump says and do the opposite.

DE BLASIO’S NYC: Mayor Says City to ‘Ban Classic' Glass and Steel Skyscrapers to Comply with ‘New Deal’

DE BLASIO’S NYC: New York On Brink of Bankruptcy for the FIRST TIME in Over 40 YEARS
New York City is inching closer to financial bankruptcy for the first time in over four decades as experts warn officials of massive public spending and decreased tax revenue as wealthy residents flee to other cities across the country.
“New York City is careening closer to all-out financial bankruptcy for the first time since Mayor Abraham Beame ran the city more than 40 years ago, experts say,” reports the New York Post.
“As tax-fleeced businesses and individuals flee en masse, and city public spending surges into the stratosphere, financial analysts say Gotham is perilously near total fiscal disaster,” adds the article. “Mayor Bill de Blasio is ramping up to spend as much as $3 billion more in the new budget than the current $89.2 billion.”
“The city is running a deficit and could be in a real difficult spot if we had a recession, or a further flight of individuals because of tax reform,” added a leading economist. “New York is already in a difficult financial spot, but it would be in an impossible situation if we had any kind of setback.”
