The never-ending list of Democratic Party candidates for president got a little bit longer Thursday, when New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced his candidacy.
“Even before his announcement, de Blasio already qualified to participate in the Democratic primary debates, according to a poll from Reuters and Ipsos,” Axios said. “The mayor intends to leverage his record of New York achievements such as universal pre-kindergarten and raising the minimum hourly wage. Following the announcement, he will go on a 4-day campaign tour to Iowa and South Carolina, per NBC.”
President Donald J. Trump weighed in on de Blasio’s candidacy on Twitter.
“The Dems are getting another beauty to join their group. Bill de Blasio of NYC, considered the worst mayor in the U.S., will supposedly be making an announcement for president today. He is a JOKE, but if you like high taxes & crime, he’s your man. NYC HATES HIM!” he said.

“There’s plenty of money in this world. There’s plenty of money in this country. It’s just in the wrong hands,” de Blasio said in a campaign announcement video.
He spent the first half of his announcement video describing his far-left platform, which includes universal healthcare, a $15 minimum wage, and “free” Pre-Kindergarten education for all. He spent the second half of the announcement video attacking Trump, calling him a “bully.”
De Blasio is squarely in the progressive corner. He was widely ridiculed for last month for proposing a skyscraper ban in New York City to fight climate change.
Big League Politics reported:
The mayor of America’s most populous city has a new plan to fight “global warming,” and it involves doing away with the landscape of the city over which he presides.
“We’re going to introduce legislation to ban the glass and steel skyscrapers that have contributed so much to global warming,” said New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said. “They have no place in our city or our Earth anymore.”
The mayor did not offer much in the way of specifics regarding his plan. Will existing skyscrapers be demolished, or will the city ban new ones from being erected? Many such buildings are apartments and condos. Will the people who live in them be forced to move? Also, what happened to “climate change?” This reporter was under the impression that “global warming” was an outdated term.
According to Spectrum News 1 in New York City, de Blasio’s proposal would prevent developers from “using all glass facades unless they meet strict new energy guidelines,” which he called “the city’s version of the Green new Deal.”

President Donald Trump to Hold “Tremendous” MAGA Rally in Georgia for GOP Senators
Georgia has a runoff election for two US Senator seats.
President Donald Trump announced that he’ll be holding a ‘Make America Great Again’ rally in the state of Georgia on Saturday, while speaking from the White House on Thanksgiving.

The President confirmed that the final outcome of the 2020 presidential election is “far from over,” with litigation still pending in Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia and Pennsylvania.
Saturday night’s rally will be held in an open-air venue such as an airport in order to minimize exposure to coronavirus.
Two US Senate seats are up for contention in Georgia in a January special election. Senators David Purdue and Kelly Loeffler will face radical pro-amnesty Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, a minister known for his association with anti-white ideology.
Dubious political operatives and the mainstream media have been salivating over the notion that Republicans would decline to vote in the Georgia runoff on the basis of dissatisfaction with current pending Georgia presidential election results. Both the President and Donald Trump Jr. have rejected such a notion, emphasizing the need for Republicans to keep the Senate regardless of the status of litigation inquiries into voter fraud.
That is NONSENSE.
IGNORE those people.

Senator Perdue has one of the strongest ‘MAGA’ track records of any Republican Senator in the Trump era, sponsoring the RAISE Act to cut annual immigration levels with Senator Tom Cotton.
Throwback to President Trump and the White House endorsing the RAISE Act, a bill that would reduce the amount of legal immigration coming into this country.
The bill was proposed by Senators Tom Cotton & David Perdue.

No matter what the final result of the 2020 election is adjudicated as, Donald Trump and the ‘MAGA’ movement he founded are simply not going away.
