“Who better to beat Donald Trump than someone who knows his every trick, his every game, his every strategy because I’ve been watching him for decades,” de Blasio told the roughly 30 people who attended the Woodbury County Democratic Party fundraiser Friday evening to hear his remarks.
Clearly energized by being out on the trail, de Blasio, who has long sought a national profile, posited that he has already tangled with Trump — and won — in a fight over federal security funding that had been tied to the city’s immigration policies. He also took a stab at Trump’s nickname game, calling him “Con Don” and urging everyone in attendance to use the pejorative title.
But the mayor’s focus on defeating the Republican president stood in contrast to a comment he made on a trip to Iowa in February: “We’re not going to win by talking about Donald Trump all the time.”
