NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- President Trump dashed off a late night tweet just after midnight Wednesday, chiming in about the protests in New York City, writing that the "radical left" has overpowered the NYPD.

He took aim at Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo -- who on Tuesday sparred over how to handle quashing the violence -- and to a lesser degree, the NYPD, but he seemed to be implying it wasn't their fault.

"New York’s Finest are not being allowed to perform their MAGIC but regardless, and with the momentum that the Radical Left and others have been allowed to build, they will need additional help," he wrote. "NYC is totally out of control. @NYCMayor & @NYGovCuomo MUST PUT DOWN RIOTING NOW!"

It was odd to pair de Blasio and Cuomo together, since on Tuesday the mayor completely shot down any thoughts about brining in the National Guard, while Cuomo said it was on standby.
