Eric Trump spars with de Blasio after ‘extortion’ threats to his dad: ‘Our great city has gone to s**t under your leadership’

Attempts by radically far-left New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio to essentially extort money out of President Donald Trump have not sat well with the president’s son Eric Trump.

Early Monday morning the mayor held a rally inside the lobby of Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan to both promote his own widely panned “Green New Deal” and demand that the Trump Organization pay fines for not abiding by certain radical environmental standards.

That he would use his political enemy’s own building to trash-talk him was stunning. Supporters of the president, including Trump Tower employees, reportedly responded by protesting and playing loud music as de Blasio tried to speak.

Following the event, the mayor took to Twitter to essentially extort the president:

Eric fired back on behalf of his father two hours later by congenially sharing his hope that the two could “work together” but rightly pointing out that de Blasio’s attempt to use his father’s own building to trash-talk him and threaten extortion was “simply childish.”

“Most Mayors do all they can to support great businesses — here in NYC, businesses are attacked for headlines and ‘political points’ and is this very mentality that is causing people to leave our great city in droves,” he wrote in one tweet.

“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.”

He wasn’t wrong. Data shows that New York is losing more citizens than every other state. Moreover, NYC, in particular, is shedding people at an astounding rate, with tens of thousands relocating annually due to crushing taxes and burdensome regulations.

Look at his full Twitter thread below:

De Blasio — a radically far-left Democrats who’s called for banning glass and steel skyscrapersbanning private employers from drug testing job applicants and banning smoking in private homes — responded shortly thereafter by talking more trash.

“Spare me,” he wrote on Twitter in anger. “You and your dad have spent decades evading taxes and stiffing your workers. NYC’s Green New Deal is one law the Trumps won’t get away with breaking. Fix your buildings or pay the price.”

Yet according to reviews of the Trump Organization posted to Indeed, the vast majority of former employees appear to have appreciated working for the current president.

“My review to this job is a good one, I like working here, they have giving me the opportunity to grow and change different position as a good employee,” one five-star review reads.

“In my experience the trump organization can be a great place to work. The job is what you make of it. The manager makes the environment worth working in,” another reads.

As for Eric, he did not take kindly to the mayor’s rhetoric.

Look at his and the mayor’s tweets below:

Again the president’s son was dead right. The murder rate in NYC spiked by 55 percent from 2018 to 2019. New York City Police Department officers reportedly still remain angry at de Blasio for skipping an NYPD swearing-in ceremony a day after a local officer was assassinated in 2015 so he could protest capitalism. And the homeless have indeed overrun the city, particular its subways.

Eric wasn’t the only one who responded to de Blasio’s trash talking. Others responded by accusing him of extortion, calling him the “worst mayor” and highlighting his own proven criminality.

“Can we collect back the 2 billion your wife stole?” one Twitter user wrote. “What about the 2 billion you were going to use to house the homeless. Can you let is know where the 85 billion the DOB already collects goes and how come they duplicate violations?”

The $2 billion allegation was presumably based on reports that together, both de Blasio and his “co-mayor” wife, Chirlane McCray, have wasted closed to $2 billion on programs that went nowhere.

McCray in particular spent $900 million on some obscure mental health program.

“[N]obody seems to have a clue on what [specifically],” the New York Post reported in February. “That is, nobody appears to have kept receipts; the subways and street corners are still overrun with crazy people, and nobody in charge knows what’s to happen next.”

It’s unclear when she plans to pay this money back.
