President Trump slammed Big Apple Mayor Bill de Blasio Thursday after the far-left leader officially entered the 2020 race for the White House; saying he’s the “worst mayor in the US” and is nothing more than a “joke.”

“The Dems are getting another beauty to join their group. Bill de Blasio of NYC, considered the worst mayor in the U.S., will supposedly be making an announcement for president today. He is a JOKE, but if you like high taxes & crime, he’s your man. NYC HATES HIM!” posted the President on social media.

De Blasio fired-back minutes later, saying “NYC has record low crime & record high jobs. We’re investing in working families with free Pre-K & guaranteed health care. #ConDon taking advantage of working families is no joke. Go to http://BilldeBlasio.com  to join our campaign. As President, I’ll put working people first.”

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio officially entered the 2020 race for the White House Thursday morning; becoming the 23rd candidate to jump into the crowded Democratic primary battle to take-on President Trump in the months ahead.

“After nearly half a year of hemming and hawing, Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday entered the 2020 presidential race, becoming the 23rd Democrat to join the jam-packed field,” reports the NY Post.

“The termed-out politician, known for his habitual tardiness, finally decided to run after five months of toying with a White House bid,” adds the article.

De Blasio has been teasing his potential White House run for months; speaking at key battleground states like Iowa and New Hampshire.

The far-left leader was publicly mocked this week during his ‘Green New Deal’ rally inside Trump Tower, with protesters blasting De Blasio as the ‘Worst Mayor Ever.’
