Bill de Blasio: Donald Trump is ‘a little scared’; I’m ‘already under his skin’

David Sherfinski The Washington TimesMay 17, 2019

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Friday President Trump’s response to Mr. de Blasio’s entering the presidential race on Thursday shows he’s already under the president’s skin.

“You saw in that video I’m already under his skin ... and you need a candidate to take him on who knows his tricks, who knows how to deal with him,” Mr. de Blasio said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

In a video that Mr. Trump posted online Thursday, he called Mr. de Blasio “the worst mayor in the United States.”

“If you like high taxes and you like crime, you can vote for him,” Mr. Trump said in the video, which appeared to be shot while he was onboard Air Force One. “But most people aren’t into that, so I wish him luck, but really [you’d] be better off if you got back to New York City and did your job for the little time you have left.”
