A couple days ago, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) held a press conference in front of the elevators at Trump Towers. He used the opportunity – and the location – to blast President Donald Trump for rolling back environmental regulations and pulling the United States out of the Paris Accord Agreement.
“We have passed a mandate in this city requiring buildings to stop the destructive emissions and that begins right here, Trump Towner,” de Blasio told the crowd. “…And clearly, the Trump Organization is a little sensitive to the fact that we’re calling them out for what they are doing to the climate and the way this building is part of the problem. But we will not back down. We don’t back down in New York City, do we?” . . .
The future of our planet is on the line, so let me put this in terms that even @realDonaldTrump can understand: fix your buildings or you'll owe our city $2.1 million.
And this city doesn't let con men get away with not paying the bill. pic.twitter.com/2TfVOmkPCF

This is what the scene actually looked like during the rally:
I'm laughing so hard!
Snake oil salesman de Blasio tried to sell the ludicrous Green New Deal, while Trump supporters rode the escalator behind him with signs.
This is magical. pic.twitter.com/DUVYfPod2E
