New York, NY - NYC Mayor Condemns Trump On Jewish Stereotype
New York, NY - On the heels of a Donald Trump appearance before Jewish community leaders earlier this week during which many of his remarks were roundly criticized for being “stereotypical” and “offensive,” and a Sunday New York Times article that described him as a"demagogue,” New York Mayor Bill de Blasio released a scathing statement on Sunday in which he equates the GOP frontrunner to some of the darkest political figures in recent US history.
In his Sunday press release, de Blasio states, “As the New York Times makes clear today in a front page article, Donald Trump will go down as one of the worst demagogues in recent U.S. political history.”
In reference to Trump’s appearance before the Jewish community earlier in the week, de Blasio states, “His latest comments last week to a mostly Jewish audience are an example. Based on hateful stereotypes of the Jewish community, they simply have no place in our society. As with
other shameful outbursts he has had about many ethnic groups, they are nothing short of dangerous.”
de Blasio continues, “Others, including myself, have spoken out when political leaders in Europe have not risen to the defense of their embattled Jewish communities. It is equally important to call out American leaders who traffic in age-old negative characterizations
