As Trump Moves to Defund “Anarchist” NYC and Three Other Cities, Gov. Cuomo Issues a Threat

President Trump has ordered the feds to jumpstart the process of defunding cities that have “deteriorated into lawless zones” by reducing the police force and allowing violent protests to run rampant.

On Wednesday the President signed an order for federal agencies to send the WH Office of Management and Budget reports detailing funding provided to “anarchist cites.” 

My Administration will not allow Federal tax dollars to fund cities that allow themselves to deteriorate into lawless zones,” Trump said. “To ensure that Federal funds are neither unduly wasted nor spent in a manner that directly violates our Government’s promise to protect life, liberty, and property, it is imperative that the Federal Government review the use of Federal funds by jurisdictions that permit anarchy, violence, and destruction in America’s cities.”

New York City, Washington, DC, Seattle, and Portland are the initial cities named in the President’s five-page memo, but they’re just Trump’s initial targets.  Attorney General Bill Barr has been tasked to put together a list of cities that refuse to “undertake reasonable measures” to restore law and order. 

Trump called out state and local officials in each of the four cities. Washington DC made the list when Mayor Muriel Bowser “allowed rioters and anarchists to engage in violence and destruction,” requiring the President to activate the National Guard. 

Portland, which received $252 million of federal funds in 2019, was named for unchecked clashes that have occurred nightly for over three months and the city’s refusal to accept federal aid.   

Seattle made the list for allowing the “autonomous zone” to take root in their downtown area. The memo noted, “in recent weeks, rioters have engaged in violence and destruction of property across Seattle, resulting in at least 59 police officers being injured and multiple businesses and vehicles vandalized.”

New York City is set to take a huge hit when they lose $7 billion in federal funding due to a surge in violence and a significant reduction in arrests. “In light of this unconscionable rise in violence, I have offered to provide Federal law enforcement assistance, but both Mayor de Blasio and Governor Andrew Cuomo have rejected my offer,” the President said.

In a press conference Wednesday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was livid. 

“He can’t have enough bodyguards to walk through New York City. Forget bodyguards, he’d better have an army if he thinks he’s going to walk down the streets in New York,” he threatened Trump. “He is persona non grata in New York City, and I think he knows that, and he’ll never come back to New York because New Yorkers will never forget how gratuitously mean he has been.”

Trump tweeted that his administration “will do everything in its power to prevent weak mayors and lawless cities from taking Federal dollars.” 

Cuomo clapped back that “He thinks he’s a king but he’s not. He’s a president. And there is a Constitution and there are laws — nothing that he knows anything about — but the federal budget is appropriated by law.”

Who exactly does this bitch think he is threatening the President? I do not understand why the Secret Service hasn’t arrested this punk and put him Gitmo. Until there are repercussions for their actions all of these Communist terrorists Democrats, BLM and Antifa are going to continue their anarchy. Stop these pieces of human feces.

Cuomo and DeBlasio have absolutely ruined the once great state of New York. They are both dictators and sociopaths.
They care for no one else but themselves.
They lack common sense and fair judgement. Incompetent is an understatement when it comes to these two. Pathetic and appalling.

Trump, Trump, he’s our man; if he can’t help us, nobody can. President Trump is our hero. You, Mr. Cuomo are a piece of excrement, mean, nasty and ugly. You sent a multitude to their death – sending covid patients into nursing homes infecting helpless patients institutionalised there. You SHOULD be defunded, and forced out of office. Do one thing right, Mr. Cuomo, and resign.

Some time ago “The Republic Standard News,” published an article
http://www.therepublicstandardnews.com/trsn_aug_26_2019_028.htmpublished an article

SANCTUARY CITY MAYORS MUST ALL GO TO PRISON!

The article demands that these mayors (and later governors), must be held responsible for aiding and abetting the criminal acts committed by those they protect under the guise of sanctuary cities.

If you are I protected it criminal in our home that went out and committed murder and mayhem we would be tried and convicted aiding and abetting in those crime – that’s the law! Why doesn’t it pertain to these governors and mayors? They are as guilty as if they committed these crimes themselves.

So why aren’t these politicians in prison? These politicians are our minions; we vote for them to carry out the law and protect the citizenry – they are breaking the law and have caused heinous murders, deaths resulting from assaults, rapes and mayhem – yet they’re not in prison, why not? Because there politicians sheer nonsense. As Americans we must demand, demand these individuals go to prison they are acting above the law something all Americans hate. Now let’s get US AG Barr to do something about putting these criminals in prison. It takes all of us to get behind this to see American justice done.

What thugs have the NYC folks voted in? This bunch is mafiosa level. Sic the IRS and DOJ on these two. And find a rico charge for them. They need to be pealed off the poor city of NYC. Grasping, grubby, dirty deals, and dam dumb pretty much describes them both.

And look at what they have not done. So not giving them more of our money was not in the future best interest for the NYC mayor and NY governor and of course, Cuomo the hood rat he is, threatens the president. Guess we stepped back into circa 1920-1930 NYC.

Discusting! The mess that he and DeBlah-blah-blah has made of a once great city is hard to watch. So is CA and their cities. And then there is Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit and All Dim Wit Enclaves! Hum! But they all watched and were warned as they let their cities burn and get destroyed and DID NOTHING, EVEN RELEASED THE FELONS AFTER THEIR PARTY WAS OVER! Yey! Well not exactly. No dinero for the those who did nothing to save their cities.

We want to use our tax dimes for better purposes. And old mafia nanc will not get a bill through to bail you idiots out though she has tried with great gusto and queenies behavior..

Add Chicago and CA to the list of destruction caused by dim wits. NO TAXPAYER MONEY TO FIX THE FUNDAMENTAL DESTRUCTION THE DIM WITS ALLOWED AND ENCOURAGED TO HAPPEN. AND CUOMO, DON’T FORGET THE NURSING HOMES AND YOUR EDICT ON THE 25TH OF MARCH 2020 TO HAVE COVID PATIENTS HOUSED IN THE OLD FOLKS HOMES. WE WON’T!

Cuomo and DeBlasio are disgusting people who have let the city of New York fall into a lawless area and is not safe for people to walk the street. Cuomo should be arrested for 3rd degree murder for puttiong Covid patients in nursing homes after Trump delivered a hospital ship and had several medical centers constructed to handle these people but the demorats wanted to raise the covid deaths and they should be held accountable for that crime against humanity.

Elsewhere- the too tall and too dumb duo of New York stated its time for action rather than words.
Well yes you two. I totally concur.
For starters, the tall and dumb duo can restore the street in front of Trump Tower back to having legal traffic markings that were defaced by the idiot living in the ozone layer.
Take a brush, dance on it, scrape with a blade. lick with your tongue or however you too decide to do it, clean the city of “BLACK LIVES MATTER” wherever it has been used to deface public property.
As a last resort, roll the Mayor’s wife from one end to the other till the defacement disappears.

“Kooky” Cuomo in a roundabout way murdered thousands of old folks and has been a flip flopping idiot who has a state deep in debt because of his ineptitude. He and De Blasio are numb skulls. Let NY fire them and replace them with God fearing conservatives, then help them restore financial stability and help law enforcement bring peace and safety once again to its citizens.
