people: I feel like I've contributed all I can to this primary election, and it's clearly not my time, de Blasio told the hosts of Morning Joe, according to CTV. So I'm going to end my presidential campaign, continue my work as mayor of New York City, and I'm going to keep speaking up for working people and for a Democratic Party that stands for working people. Announcing his decision in an MSNBC interview, de Blasio did not throw his support behind any candidate but said he would support the eventual Democratic nominee with energy. President Donald Trump, no fan of de Blasio, tweeted Oh no, really big political news, perhaps the biggest story in years! Part time Mayor of New York City, Billde Blasio, who was polling at a solid ZERO but had tremendous room for growth, has shocking dropped out of the Presidential race. You know what it was Height. NYC is devastated, he's coming home! Trump added later that the 6-foot-5 mayor only had one real asset. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
