President Trump stormed Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday after The Post reported that Hizzoner plans to paint “Black Lives Matter” on the street in front of the Trump Tower.
“I was told that @ NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio wants to paint the legendary and beautiful Fifth Avenue, right in front of Trump Tower / Tiffany, with a big yellow Black Lives Matter sign. ‘Pigs in a blanket, frying’ Em Like Bacon ‘, referring to killing the police, is his song. The NYPD is furious! The president tweeted.
The Post reported Wednesday that the mayor has authorized the painting in large yellow letters on Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th streets, just in front of the Manhattan skyscraper.
Trump also responded to the president of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York, who said that if the move does not result in real change, “it will burn down this system.”
“Black Lives leader Matter says, ‘If the United States doesn’t give us what we want, we will burn this system down and replace it.’ This is treason, sedition, insurrection! Trump said.
Moments later he tweeted: “LAW AND ORDER.”
“If this country does not give us what we want, we will burn this system down and replace it. All good? And it could be speaking figuratively. It could be literally speaking. It’s a matter of interpretation, “Hawk Newsome said during an interview Wednesday night in” The Story “with Martha MacCallum.
