New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) launched his presidential campaign on Thursday, joining a crowded field of Democratic contenders.
“Donald Trump must be stopped,” he said in a video announcing the launch of his campaign. “I’ve beaten him before and I’ll do it again.”
“I will take on the wealthy. I will take on the big corporations. I will not rest until this government serves working people. As mayor of the largest city in America, I’ve done just that,” he added.
Polices de Blasio enacted in New York – including an expansion of health care and free pre-Kindergarten — are highlighted in the launch video.
“There’s plenty of money in this world, there’s plenty of money in this country, it’s just in the wrong hands,” he said.
