The New York City Police Benevolent Association (NYC PBA) released a scathing statement hitting back at Democratic New York Mayor Bill de Blasio after he announced the end of his presidential campaign.

De Blasio dropped out of the race on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Friday after failing to reach higher than 1% in polls throughout his campaign, CNBC reported. The New York mayor said that he has “contributed all I can to this primary election,” adding that “it’s clearly not my time.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The NYC PBA, who have expressed their displeasure with de Blasio in the past, released a statement following the news. The union wrote that “NYC doesn’t need lame duck de Blasio.”

The statement reads as follows:

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch said: “This campaign proved that it really doesn’t matter whether Mayor Bill de Blasio is speaking to empty rooms in Iowa or spinning his wheels in a Park Slope gym. What matters to New Yorkers is that he isn’t doing his job.”

“Our city is facing real issues that Mayor de Blasio has either ignored or papered over with campaign slogans. Cherry-picking crime stats has done nothing to address the alarming increase in shootings or the growing disorder New Yorkers see on the street. Shouting ‘Working People First’ has done nothing to help city workers suffering through health benefit cuts and below-inflation raises.”

“The only thing Mayor de Blasio’s presidential campaign accomplished was the alienation of hard-working New Yorkers and the deepening of serious divisions in our city, especially between his administration and New York City police officers. He has squandered his credibility and lost the confidence of even his former supporters. He needs to either step aside or be removed to make way for a Mayor who actually wants the job.”
