Four Democrat Mayors say Trump’s political attacks ‘Unlawful, Unconstitutional’

New York, Sep 3 (Sputnik) - Four Democratic mayors - Bill de Blasio of New York City, Ted Wheeler of Portland, Jenny Durkan of Seattle and Muriel Bowser of Washington, DC - said in a statement on Thursday that President Donald Trump’s political attacks against their cities are unlawful and unconstitutional.
"Our cities… are not President Trump’s political pawns," the statement said. "We are confronting unprecedented challenges - fighting back a pandemic and economic devastation without another stimulus. Now, instead of leadership from the White House, we are faced with new attacks that are unlawful, unconstitutional and will be undoubtedly defeated in court."
Trump has been very critical of the four mayors - as well as of other Democratic mayors - for allowing violent protests and riots to fester for three months while refusing his offers for federal assistance to quell unrest. On several occasions, Trump suggested that he would send federal law enforcement and the National Guard if the mayors do not prevent violence and the destruction of property.
