It is a bad time to be an enemy of President Donald Trump.
One by one they are falling in spectacular ways.
And yet another one of his enemies just got news that will end his career.
Democrats were hoping to use their hatred of Donald Trump to lead their messaging going into 2020.
But as it turns out, with the economy booming, basing their entire message on hating the president isn’t a very good idea.
The perfect example of this strategy failing was at a recent speaking engagement by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
The failing mayor was hoping that a press conference supporting the “Green New Deal” in front of Trump Tower in New York City would be a good idea to stick it to Trump.
But he ran into a pitfall immediately when weather forced the event inside the building, forcing him to host it directly in front of the famous escalators where then-citizen Trump descended in 2015 to announce his campaign for President.
And things quickly got worse for him when dozens of supporters of President Trump showed up holding both pro-Trump and anti-de Blasio signs, moving up and down the set of escalators to keep the signs constantly visible to news cameras.
The signs featured slogans like “Trump 2020,” and “Worst mayor ever.”
De Blasio also complained that staff at Trump Tower was purposefully playing loud music to drown him out.
At the event, de Blasio blasted President Trump for not meeting newly enacted emissions standards passed two weeks ago in many of his properties.
According to de Blasio, the Trump organization may owe $2.1 million in fines for not complying.
But he fails to mention that buildings in New York have 11 years to comply with the new law, according to The City reporter Yoav Gonen.
And things didn’t get any better for de Blasio when reporters began asking questions.
De Blasio was not able to answer whether any other landlords in the city fail to meet the new standards, and why he was simply targeting Trump.
Reporters also questioned the Mayor on his continued use of motorcades featuring multiple SUVs to get around.
So needless to say, this entire event went about as bad as it could have gone.
It is especially bad for de Blasio who is considering a run for President in 2020.
The press conference is just a small example of his unpopularity in the city.
The New York Post reports that his approval rating in March was a measly 24 percent, with 49 percent disapproving of him.
So if he can’t even get voters that he represents to like him, he has little chance in a presidential election.
But after his failure at his recent press conference, he may just completely give up on his presidential aspirations.
Do you think Bill de Blasio could beat President Trump in an election?
