“There’s plenty of money in this world, there’s plenty of money in this country, it’s just in the wrong hands,” de Blasio said in an announcement video Thursday. The video also includes shots of the city, with de Blasio looking back on his work on regional healthcare and minimum wage reform.
This announcement makes him something like the trillionth person to announce a 2020 campaign on the non-Trump side of our dilapidated political infrastructure or whatever. “I’m running for president because it’s time we put working people first,” de Blasio said Thursday.
Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Marianne Williamson, and Beto O’Rourke previously announced 2020 campaigns. With his announcement, de Blasio also becomes the third mayor competing for the White House.

The LeBron James tweet is not minor. The President of the United States, a long-proven racist, used his platform to attack two black men last night, one of whom just started a school for at-risk kids. If you're not angry and ashamed for our country right now, we part company.— Mark Harris (@MarkHarrisNYC) August 4, 2018

Of all the problems in the world, Trump used his presidential authority to call LeBron James stupid last night. LeBron just opened a school for at-risk kids, providing them free tuition, bicycles, food, counseling & guaranteed tuition to the University of Akron if they graduate.— Brian Klaas (@brianklaas) August 4, 2018

If you want to rip LeBron James for the things he's done, and continues to do, off the court, you're a real special kind of idiot.
Keep doing great things in both areas @KingJames.
