Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani called on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to remove the city’s current mayor, Bill de Blasio, because of his handling of protests and looting in New York City.
In a pair of tweets, the former mayor and attorney of President Trump said that de Blasio had lost control of the demonstrations in his city and was unfairly criticizing members of the New York Police Department (NYPD).
“Gov. Cuomo should remove Mayor DiBlasio. He is preventing the NYPD from taking the actions that have prevented riots in the past,” Giuliani tweeted.
“The Mayor in NYC has lost control of the mob and of the city,” he continued. “The Mayor is preventing the NYPD to take the actions necessary to stop brutal attacks on police and citizens. He is even falsely accusing NYPD of taking excessive action when he has made them punching bags.”
“The mayor should step down. He’s incompetent,” Giuliani said.
