It is quite telling that the mayor of the city struck by the most horrendous terror attack in the American stands up to tell Donald Trump and those propagating segregation and hatred against others what he and the people of New York would do. I truly hope that he does not have to live up to his statements but if it needs to be that he will.
See below the videos from Mayor de Blasio’s Facebook site. The first video features the complete event at Cooper Union, the second video is clip comprising Mr de Blasio’s core sentiments.
