And New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is running for president, joining a crowded field of 24 contenders for the Democratic nomination. De Blasio kicked off his campaign Thursday with a video highlighting his experience as mayor of New York, promising to fight for working families, combat climate change and take on Donald Trump.
Mayor Bill de Blasio: “I will take on the wealthy. I will take on the big corporations. I will not rest until this government serves working people. As mayor of the largest city in America, I’ve done just that. Donald Trump must be stopped. I’ve beaten him before, and I will do it again.”
