New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio walks into his polling site at the Park Slope Library on Election Day, Nov. 7, 2017 in Brooklyn. De Blasio , who is in his second term, joins a crowded field of nearly two dozen Democrats seeking to move into the White House.
The central theme of de Blasio’s campaign is “working people first.”
Earlier this week, de Blasio held an event at Trump Tower in New York to announce that eight of the president’s signature namesake buildings would owe the city $2.1 million per year if the Trump Organization doesn’t make changes to cut their greenhouse gas emissions, in New York City’s version of the Green New Deal, which is set to take effect on Friday. As he took the stage, behind him were protesters holding signs that said “failed mayor” and “worst mayor ever,” as well as his face on the body of Big Bird from “Sesame Street.”
When asked if the protests foreshadow what’s to come for a potential bid, the mayor on Monday said: “It means we’re doing something important here in New York City, if all these people who support President Trump are opposing what we’re doing. We must be doing something right.”
(MORE: New York City mayor proposes law giving all workers 2 weeks of paid time off) De Blasio has been New York City’s mayor since January 2014. In that role, he implemented universal pre-K and signed an executive order to exchange single-use plastics for compostable or recycling alternatives in an effort to reduce carbon emissions, plastic pollution and wildlife risks.
In January, de Blasio talked on “The View” about his plan for comprehensive health care for all New Yorkers, including 300,000 undocumented New Yorkers.
De Blasio has a history with several prominent Democrats very familiar with presidential runs. He was the campaign manager for Hillary Clinton’s Senate campaign in 2000 and was sworn into office for his first term as mayor by Bill Clinton. Earlier this year, he was sworn in to his second term by Sen. Bernie Sanders.

13 People Who Tried Transparent Camping And Fully Immersed Themselves Into The Beauty Of Nature

Li BoredPanda staff What better place to stay in than a 5-star hotel? A 5-billion star hotel. Camping means you leave the television, video games, and most of your stress at home, finding comfort in nature. And a recent Instagram trend is popularizing a way to make the experience even more immersive. It’s called transparent camping and it’s all about the beautiful surroundings around you. Image credits: thetentcommandments Specialized tents aside, people are also uploading photos of themselves chilling in their tents after an exhausting hike or a long swim, just without its top and with the zippers down. You won’t be able to do it in the rain or heavy wind but if the weather is just right and you just have to get a good rest, why not enjoy the view? Assuming mosquitoes aren’t a problem, of course. But not all places have a gazillion insects living in a square inch. Image credits: thetentcommandments But there’s much more to camping than the breathtaking scenery. When you’re out there in the wild, you get to learn a great deal of problem-solving. Everyone has to learn how to properly pitch a tent, start a fire, and you can’t get lost in the woods when collecting logs, either. Other camping activities such as fishing, hiking, or kayaking also involve quite a bit of problem-solving. Image credits: thetentcommandments Another really important aspect of camping is how it helps you build and strengthen relationships. You get a chance to talk and reconnect with people without any distractions, even late into the night. And there’s always something to talk about as well. Just huddle around the campfire and share stories about the activities you did that day. Image credits: thetentcommandments Camping isn’t a glamorous activity but that’s the beauty of it. You don’t need to look good for anyone. You can enjoy a good sweat and later, take pride in completing all of those activities that got you through the day.
