New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Wednesday that President Trump’s hometown would seek compensation for any taxes that should have been paid on the money the billionaire got from his late father, and added that “if a lot of people had done their jobs, he would never have been president of the United States.”
Speaking during a press conference alongside New York Police Department Commissioner James O’Neil, de Blasio slammed what he called the “good-old-boy network” in the Empire State that permitted Trump to minimize the amount of taxes that he and his family members paid.
“There was a good-old-boy network that obviously Donald Trump played like a fiddle and evaded the kind of regulation and investigation and prosecution he should have received many times over,” de Blasio said. “He finagled and paid his way to being able to escape the kind of scrutiny and prosecution he deserved. And honestly, if a lot of people in New York state had done their jobs, he would never have been president of the United States.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“It’s clear to me that there are real ramifications right now to what has been disclosed, either potential violations of law, or in cases where the statute of limitations has ended that there may be very serious civil penalties that can be applied by both the state and the city,” de Blasio told reporters gathered at One Police Plaza on Wednesday. “The city of New York is looking to recoup any money that Donald Trump owes the people of New York City, period.”
