In the weeks since Donald Trump won the presidential election and assumed office, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has sought every opportunity to present himself as opposed to Trump. While de Blasio has promoted his administration as a defender against Trump’s anti-immigrant and racist agenda, he has refused to take concrete action within his own power to protect New Yorkers.

NYPD’s Alleged/Substantiated Abuses, Misconduct, Racial Disparities, and Lack of Accountability & Transparency Continue in January under de Blasio/O’Neill

Rudy Giuliani may soon be the first western diplomat of the modern era to have stoked a racist police riot. The former New York mayor has shamelessly promoted himself as a key member of the Donald Trump administration first as a potential attorney general, then openly touting himself to become secretary of state.

Black residents who remember his time in New York with dismay believe his divisive record should disqualify him as the US’s chief diplomat.
