NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – President Donald Trump slammed Mayor Bill de Blasio on Tuesday night, saying the mayor has been “horrible” and that the city is “going bad.”

The president attacked the mayor during an appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show.

“I left (New York City), it was four years ago; it was a wonderful place,” Trump said. “You could see signs of badness, but it was a wonderful place. And now its crime is up by many, many times.”

“What’s happening in New York is so horrible for our country. What they’ve done—what Mayor de Blasio has done to that city in a short period of time is horrible,” the president said.

Trump also brought up progressive Jamaal Bowman’s upset Democratic primary win last month over longtime Rep. Eliot Engel, who represents parts of the Bronx and Westchester.

“The people that are winning these races for the Democrats — Eliot Engel, he was staple many, many years … a staple from a very nice part of the world that’s going bad on us: New York,” Trump said. “It's going bad."

"You look at Eliot Engel gets beaten easily by the radical left," Trump said. "And the Democrats, that's where they are."
