One of the most petty, childish things NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio has done during his tenure as ‘leader’ of the Big Apple was to pledge last week to paint a “Black Lives Matter” mural across from Trump Tower.
President Trump blasted the decision in a tweet Tuesday, calling BLM a “symbol of hate” which is technically true, given the group’s exclusionary slogan.
Doubt that? Then ask yourself how long “White Lives Matter” would last as a slogan without being savaged by the Left-wing media, blasted by Democrats, and banned by all major social media platforms.
'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.’'
'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,' Trump continued.
….horrible BLM chant, 'Pigs In A Blanket, Fry 'Em Like Bacon'. 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. Spend this money fighting crime instead!

The president is also right about de Blasio.
After promising last month he would bend to BLM demands to ‘defund’ the NYPD, de Blasio announced that he would reroute funds from the department’s budget to ‘social’ needs.
And he followed through, proposing to cut $1 billion from the department’s $6 billion budget, at a time when shootings/murders, violent crime, and perpetual protests are all up.
If you live in one of these hopeless Left-wing cities, might want to start thinking about getting out.
Because if your mayor is spending more time thinking about how to ‘stick it’ to Donald Trump while cutting his police budget amid restive times, chances are really good things are only going to get worse.
