Trump Reacts to Plans for BLM Mural in NYC as Police Department Faces Defunding

President Donald Trump is not pleased with the Black Lives Matter mural scheduled to be painted on Fifth Avenue in New York City — near Trump Tower.

On Wednesday, the president took to Twitter where he lashed out at New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) for allowing the mural to move forward. Trump also slammed de Blasio and city officials for the decision to cut the annual budget for the New York Police Department. 

“NYC is cutting Police [dollars] by ONE BILLION DOLLARS, and yet the [NYC Mayor] is going to paint a big, expensive yellow Black Lives Matter sign on Fifth Avenue, denigrating this luxury avenue,” Trump tweeted.

According to Trump, the mural which he describes as a “symbol of hate” will “further antagonize New York’s Finest.” He also referenced an alleged anti-police chant where protesters allegedly yelled, “pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon.” 

However, it is important to note that that particular chant not been reported or documented as a mantra in any of the George Floyd protests. 

“Maybe our GREAT Police, who have been neutralized and scorned by a mayor who hates [and] disrespects them, won’t let this symbol of hate be affixed to New York’s greatest street. Spend this money fighting crime instead!” Trump tweeted.

Trump’s fiery tweets came shortly after reports began circulating about de Blasio confirming the timeline and location for the impending mural. 

Not deterred by Trump’s criticism, de Blasio offered a direct response to the president’s disapproving remarks as he reminded him of the history of Fifth Avenue where his luxury tower now sits. 

“Here’s what you don’t understand: Black people BUILT 5th Ave and so much of this nation,” de Blasio tweeted. “Your ‘luxury’ came from THEIR labor, for which they have never been justly compensated. We are honoring them. The fact that you see it as denigrating your street is the definition of racism.”

The mayor had a rebuttal for Trump’s reference to “New York’s finest” tweeting, “You also don’t know that NY’s Finest are now a majority people of color. They already know Black Lives Matter. There is no ‘symbol of hate’ here. Just a commitment to truth. Only in your mind could an affirmation of people’s value be a scary thing.”

According to de Blasio, at least five Black Lives Matter murals will be painted in various areas of the city. He also reportedly personally advocated for the mural on Fifth Avenue to be placed between 56th and 57th streets which is the same block where Trump Tower is.

  1. Penis – i put together my views on the subject listening to BS interviews from BLM leaders or speeches during the BS protests.

    I put my views together by reading BS. I put my views together by listening to BS.

    I also have BS views on black on black crime. However THAT view would be extremely off topic in BLM discussions as that organization focuses directly on BS.

  2. The perfect response will be to paint a bright yellow line over the BLM which is the programming symbol of NOT. Bwahahahahahahaha!! ON a side note, here comes John, riding down the street on his menstrual cycle.

  3. Paul – i put together my views on the subject listening to interviews from BLM leaders or speeches during the protests.

    I put my views together by reading factual stories from FBI exaining that white supremacists have infiltrated police departments. I put my views together by listening to police leadership make excuses for bad police as they go back on duty.

    I also have views on black on black crime. However THAT view would be extremely off topic in BLM discussions as that organization focuses directly on police brutality. There are other organizations that focus on black on black crime. Do you listen to them since that such an important topic to you?

  4. Ahole de Blah zio is doing this to antagonize President Trump, period, the man is a total scum and NY deserves him and what he does to deface this state, it was, back in the day, a great city/state, now, circling the swamp drain with people like de Blah zio and King Cuomo in charge…

  5. And Paul, i generally try not to throw around the racist card unjustly. But judging a person solely on the basis of their skin is literally the definition of racism. Surely you’re not unapologetically supporting that.

  6. Paul, i don’t judge all police on the actions of few. Can you show me where i did?

    I do support justice against bad police and those who protect them. I also support reform – but that is based solely on feedback from the community AND police feedback that claim to be overworked and handling too wide of a range of issues. Otherwise I’m very supportive of police.

    So am I – and I’m assuming you as well – as a white person then also to be judged on actions of white supremacists, white murderers, gang violence (gasp! Whites have gangs too!), etc.. as well?

  7. Facts are facts Phoenix. Why do you ignore them? Oh yea because fake news ignore them.

    I ask you why can a whole group of people judge cops on a few bad ones and make drastic decisions based on the few? Which is fact too but fake news reports it.

  8. Centrist can’t wait to see all the libtards lining up at psyc wards on Nov 4.

  9. Interesting take Paul – tell me more about how an entire race of people should be judges as a whole based on their worst?

  10. Can’t wait to hear what these right wing trumpeteers will be saying come November 4th. I suspect IJR will be very quiet on that day and the days to follow

    1. They will be celebrating in the streets unless the left wing Marxists are successful at voter fraud. Then, I suspect right wing trumpeteers will be saying, “fix bayonets.”

  11. The Caucasian trash n*gger-in-chief is a phyuhking TRAITOR.

    All of his Caucasian trash n*gger supporters are phuhking TRAITORS.

  12. That street “painting” is nothing more than over priced Graffiti! And it’s damn UGLY! Two kids were shot dead, last week, in Chicago for asking the killer how tall he was! BLM? I doubt that very much! Cuz you won’t hear a word out of them over this, since it did not involve any White People!!

  13. Wonder if the mural will show blacks killing other blacks especially little kids.

  14. As usual Putin’s Pussy trumpuke is butting his no good,

    Caucasian trash n*gger ass into other people’s

    business while he continues to completely neglect

    HIS responsibilities.

    Being a complete phuking asshole is NOT in his job description.

    1. Even when I remove the racism and vulgarity from your incoherent post, it still makes no sense. You’re spewing diarrhea out your mouth.
