The President of the United States, Donald Trump, attacked the Mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, this Wednesday because he wanted to make a mural with the slogan “Black Lives Matter” on Fifth Avenue in front of the Trump Tower , which the president called a “symbol of hate”.

The New York magnate, who asked local authorities to invest the money in the police department, regretted that “New York is cutting police resources and wants to continue making a large and expensive police mural on Fifth Avenue.” For the President, this would mean “disparaging” the “luxurious street”.

“This will be a crime for the best of New York, for those who love the city,” he said before suggesting that “the police, neutralized and despised by a mayor who hates and disrespects them, this may not allow this symbol of hatred stifles the best street in town. “
