New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced today that he is ending his presidential campaign after failing to gain any traction, and President Donald Trump trolled the far-left failure in a Twitter post shortly afterward.

“I feel like I’ve contributed all I can to this primary election and it’s clearly not my time so I’m going to end my presidential campaign,” de Blasio said during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Friday morning.

The New York City mayor elaborated on his decision in an op/ed published by NBC News in which he promised to keep fighting for progressive values and working families by setting an example in his own city that he hopes America will follow.

“Throughout history, New York City has often performed a vital role for this nation: When the country threatens to lurch in a more divisive direction, we’ve always been a beacon moving toward a more hopeful future,” he wrote.

“That’s why fighting for working people and ensuring that New York City remains the vanguard of progressivism will continue to be my missions,” he added.

However, New York City cops do not share de Blasio’s perspective. The city’s police union issued a “no confidence” vote to de Blasio last month for perpetuating policies that have put law enforcement in needless danger and emboldened criminals.

The Police Benevolent Association urged “Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to exercise his powers under the Charter to immediately suspend and ultimately remove Mayor de Blasio on charges of malfeasance and nonfeasance in the above-stated matters.” They also blistered police commissioner, James O’Neill, for being de Blasio’s henchman.

The people of New York share a similar view of de Blasio as the police union. A statewide poll from Siena College released in August showed that only 26 percent of respondents have a favorable view of de Blasio while 57 percent have a negative view of the extreme socialist.

De Blasio is undaunted by opposition from law enforcement and ordinary New Yorkers, and remains focused on implementing more socialist policies in his city no matter how unpopular they may be.

“I’m going to continue implementing universal health care and a Green New Deal in the nation’s largest city,” he wrote.

Fortunately for Americans, de Blasio will never have the opportunity to do what he has done to New York City to the entire country. He will not be the Democratic presidential nominee who gets embarrassed by Trump in 2020.
