Mayor de Blasio is fundraising off Donald Trump’s victory, warning the same “small pockets” that supported Trump in New York are trying to defeat him as mayor.
In an email to campaign supporters Sunday, de Blasio reiterated his vow to resist any effort to deport undocumented immigrants who live in New York, or to take away health insurance or reproductive rights.
“Now, that will probably make us a target of Trump supporters in our upcoming re-election,” de Blasio wrote. “While he only received small pockets of support in New York City, much of it came from people who are prepared to spend a lot of money to defeat us next year.”
He asked for a $3 contribution to his 2017 re-election campaign, in line with his strategy of going after small dollar donors.
Yeah, it's a lot more than Trump voters who won't be voting for you next year. You managed to piss off most of your own party as well, so good luck.
