De Blasio says he’s going to spend his time ensuring New York City remains the “vanguard of progressivism.”
President Trump weighed in on de Blasio’s exit from the race.
Oh no, really big political news, perhaps the biggest story in years! Part time Mayor of New York City, @BilldeBlasio, who was polling at a solid ZERO but had tremendous room for growth, has shocking dropped out of the Presidential race. NYC is devastated, he’s coming home!
