President Trump reacted Friday to an editorial in The Post about New Yorkers fleeing the city — saying the Big Apple had been “showing signs of future problems.”
In a tweet linking to the editorial headlined “A mad rush for the exits as New York City goes down the tubes,” the president added that Gotham “was so good when I left 4 years ago.”
The editorial describes how the coronavirus pandemic was the “last straw” that prompted residents to ditch the city – amid the shootings, lootings, homelessness, high taxes and “the sheer obliviousness of pols like Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo.”
In an exclusive interview with The Post on Thursday, the commander in chief said his campaign is “putting New York in play” against Democrat Joe Biden in the 2020 election.
Trump said he believes a surge in violent crime and sky-high taxes can help him win his home state in an upset against Biden and running mate Kamala Harris.
“Over the last six months what’s happened is insane. It’s insane. So we’re going to try very hard to win New York and that will be the first time — is that since Ronald Reagan, I guess? Since Ronald Reagan,” the president said.
