NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - Within an hour of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio joining the Democratic presidential race, he and President Donald Trump were already trading barbs.
During a Thursday morning appearance on "Good Morning America," de Blasio borrowed one of Trump's favorite tactics by giving the president a disparaging nickname: Con Don.
"He's a con artist. I know his tricks I know his playbook," the mayor said.
Trump tweeted: "The Dems are getting another beauty to join their group. Bill de Blasio of NYC, considered the worst mayor in the U.S., will supposedly be making an announcement for president today. He is a JOKE, but if you like high taxes & crime, he’s your man. NYC HATES HIM!
De Blasio becomes the 23rd Democratic candidate to enter the race and the first mayor of New York City since John Lindsay in 1972.
