Bill De Blasio Pulls Out Of Meeting With Trump Over Sanctuary Cities


Mayor Bill de Blasio pulled out of a planned meeting with President Donald Trump Wednesday afternoon in protest of new federal actions targeting undocumented immigrants.

De Blasio, among more than 100 mayors scheduled to discuss infrastructure funding with Trump in Washington, D.C., during the U.S. Conference of Mayors winter gathering, tweeted that he would not attend after reports that the U.S. Department of Justice threatened to subpoena 23 so-called “sanctuary” municipalities that don’t cooperate with immigration officials, including New York City.

“I will NOT be attending today’s meeting at the White House after @realDonaldTrump’s Department of Justice decided to renew their racist assault on our immigrant communities,” de Blasio said in the tweet. “It doesn’t make us safer and it violates America’s core values.” Read more.



  1. It’s racist to drive out Mexican and Muslim criminals and terrorists. They must be protected on taxpayer’s money at all cost.

    New York State (and California) would be much safer with a cat as Mayor like they had in Alaska for 15 years, between 1997 and 2012. At least the cat wouldn’t object to expelling criminals and terrorists.

  2. Why is DeBlasio playing the race card? How is Trump a racist? Because he’s following the law on the books?
    If the Mayor of NYC is breaking the law by hosting an ILLEGAL Sanctuary City, why should I, a hardworking taxpayer, follow the law? Why can the Mayor get away with a crime and suffer no consequences but if I break the law, the FBI will raid my home at 3:00 am?! Jeff Sessions is a FAILURE.

  3. Everyone is complaining about this mayor someone must of have voted for him to get the majority vote. I guess the dead voted again, the illegals voted, the drug and alcoholics voted for him, the homeless voted for him, since it is so loose a city now and sanctuary to all who come, but who is paying the bills not the ones stated above?

  4. Debil Assio thinks that he could take on the President? People smarter and mightier than he could even imagine ended up looking at the sky through the bars, for defying federal authority. What an idiot!

  5. Stay home dsblasio! No one needs you there! You will be the only one on the losing end–losing valuable infrastructure funds sorely needed by the city !
