DeBlasio says Trump ‘not doing anything’ to help NYC recover from COVID pandemic

(USA Features) New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio blasted President Donald Trump Sunday, claiming he is “not doing anything” to help his hometown recover from the health and economic ravages of the coronavirus pandemic.

“[The] federal government is not saying, we’re going to make you whole for that extraordinary effort,” de Blasio complained to MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

“My budget, I just announced, we’ve lost over $7 billion in revenue. Right now, Donald Trump is not doing anything to help my city back on its feet,” he said without elaborating as to what he expected the federal government to do.

“How am I going to pay for basic services? How am I going to pay for first responders? How am I going to have a restart of my economy if my city is going broke?” the mayor said.



Critics like conservative talk host Mark Levin have noted it is hypocritical for de Blasio to claim that the president has no authority to say when New York City can reopen following the worst of the coronavirus pandemic, but then demand the federal government cover his economic shortfalls after he made the decision to shut down his city.

Also, the Trump administration has shipped scores of supplies and critically needed equipment like ventilators — so many, in fact, that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has begun sending hundreds to other needy states.

In addition, the administration had the Army Corps of Engineers build a 1,000-bed hospital at the Javits Center in NYC, and sent the USNS Comfort, one of the Navy’s two hospital ships, to New York Harbor.

The Javits Center and the ship remain minimally used.

  3. I have never seen such a divided country. Instead of everybody respecting what people are going through and uniting to help each other out of this crisis, all I see are groups more interested in kicking the crap out of each other. Hey, wake up, people are dying. Work on that and when its all over , then focus on the blame game.

  4. Go screw yourself DeLousio. You are a big part of why NYC is having such a tough time. Telling people to go out and take in a show or go to a ball game. You should be down on bended knee begging for help, not running your yap. Oh are you late for the gym? I hear you spend more time there than at City Hall. A shame, because it doesn’t show.

  5. Ask your governor first, he has all the answers, or Schumer maybe AOC. I would start cutting the budget, just like all of us with no paycheck.have had to do.

    Tell me Bill/Warren, where is the $900 m that your wife stole from NY taxpayers for her fake mental health scheme

  7. Why does NYC need any “help”. They and their politicians have made it a daily comment to talk disparagingly about “fly over” country. Can it be that DeBlasio, The Answer Man, actually has no answers? Seems that way to us dumb yokels out here who are having a go of it with little to no problems.
