NYC Set to Begin Painting Black Lives Matter Mural Right Outside Trump Tower


Mayor Bill de Blasio may be one of the most petty politicians in the country.

He’s done almost everything in his power to pander to Black Lives Matter radicals while trashing the NYPD.

Most recently, he successfully slashed $1 billion in funding from the NYPD with the help of the city council.

Now, the city is officially set to begin painting a Black Lives Matter mural outside Trump Tower in Fifth Avenue.

It’s clearly a move on the mayor’s part to disrespect President Trump.

Here’s the details from the New York Post on the mural:

New York City will begin painting a large Black Lives Matter mural along Fifth Avenue outside Trump Tower on Thursday, sources told The Post.

Mayor Bill de Blasio plans to attend the project at some point as well, the sources said. The lettering will stretch between 56th and 57th streets right in front of Trump’s Manhattan high-rise.

The mayor had planned to start work on the mural last week but postponed the painting a day after President Trump condemned the idea as a “symbol of hate.”

“NYC is cutting Police $’s by ONE BILLION DOLLARS, and yet the @NYCMayor is going to paint a big, expensive, yellow Black Lives Matter sign on Fifth Avenue, denigrating this luxury Avenue,” Trump wrote in a series of tweets last Wednesday morning.

“Maybe our GREAT Police, who have been neutralized and scorned by a mayor who hates & disrespects them, won’t let this symbol of hate be affixed to New York’s greatest street,” Trump went on. “Spend this money fighting crime instead!”

De Blasio pushed back later that morning, tweeting, “The fact that you see it as denigrating your street is the definition of racism.”

“Black people BUILT 5th Ave and so much of this nation,” the mayor added. “Your “luxury” came from THEIR labor, for which they have never been justly compensated. We are honoring them.”
