New York, NY – On Tuesday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) said that he has the power to displace New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. This comes just a few weeks after Cuomo accused President Trump of a power overreach. He claimed in a statement that Trump was not a king and did not have absolute power.
Absolute power must be on the mind of Cuomo now as he makes statements that he could remove the NYC Mayor. The comment came during statements about his disappointment in the handling of riots in New York City. De Blasio has announced a curfew in the city, but it has done little to curb the violence.
Cuomo said that de Blasio is underestimating the riots and has a police force strong enough to handle the problem. The NYC Mayor said that they would assure the NYPD had the resources necessary to take care of the issues.
President Trump also spoke out about the violence in NYC and shared the New York governor continues to decline asssitance.
One interesting comment was made by Mayor de Blasio, however. When asked if he would accept the National Guard to help, he said that they did not believe it was appropriate or needed. He continued by saying, “anytime outside armed forces go into communities, no good comes of it.”
Is Mayor de Blasio saying that the National Guard is a foreign enemy? These are everyday Americans that are putting their lives on the line to serve our country and will come in to help secure peace. They love the country more than Mayor de Blasio.
Democrat governors across the country are refusing the calls to provide National Guard assistance, as has been requested by President Trump. They claim they are refusing out of protest to the Presidents rhetoric and will keep their guardsmen at home. While keeping them at home, they refuse to use those guardsmen to help bring peace to the riot-torn cities and neighborhoods.
It seems that the Democrats do not want to stop the violence. It seems they want it to continue so they can use it as another means to attack President Trump. President Trump’s comments in the Rose Garden were severe. He has no tolerance for the violence that our nation is witnessing from these riots.
The Democrats are playing a game with the American people. The media is encouraging the riots. The Democrats are fanning the flame of racism and hate towards President Trump and conservative Americans. Some are reporting that they see indications of the protests and riots spilling over into small towns. This is a bad look for America and a disgrace to our country.
