Appearing on Fox Business, former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani sounded off on current mayor Bill de Blasio after another night of violent protests.
This action did not have to happen if we had a vaguely competent mayor. This should have been stopped five days ago. I mean, couldn’t they have stopped some of that?
We have watched now over and over again people looting, throwing Molotov cocktails, burning cars, and now putting our police in prison, in hospitals, and virtually no major arrests are made.
The mayor should step down. He’s incompetent.
…He’s been a terrible mayor for six-and-a-half, seven years. Terrible. There isn’t a person in the city that will tell you he hasn’t been a terrible mayor. But now we need a vaguely competent mayor because people are going to die if this man doesn’t get out of the way and let the police department do their job.
