Mayor de Blasio Pledges To Take Swift Action Against NYPD Cop Caught Praising Trump

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio spoke out on Sunday to say that swift action will be taken against the NYPD police officer who was caught on camera saying “Trump 2020” the night before.

Multiple videos have been making the rounds on social media showing the cop saying “Trump 2020” over the loudspeaker of his patrol car while two other officers talk to each other nearby.

“Do it again. What? You can’t say ‘Trump 2020’ now, you f***ing p****?” the man behind the camera in the first video can be heard saying. “Say it again.”

When the officer repeats the words “Trump 2020,” the man with the camera loses it, shouting, “Go f*** yourself you f***ing fascist.”

The next video shot by someone else at a different angle shows what happened next.

Do you agree that protesting is acceptable, but rioting is not?

“Trump 2020. Put it on YouTube, put it on Facebook. Trump 2020,” the cop said over the loudspeaker. “Take a picture, take a picture, take a video, put it on your Facebook, put it on YouTube. Have some fun.”

City officials have since called for the NYPD officer to be reprimanded, with the ultra-liberal Mayor de Blasio being one of them.

“Let me be clear: ANY NYPD Officer pushing ANY political agenda while on duty will face consequences. We will act fast here, and this will not be tolerated,” de Blasio said alongside a tweet from the NYPD saying that the Brooklyn South Investigation Unit has launched a probe into finding out who the cop is.

NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea addressed the tweet as well.

“One hundred percent unacceptable. Period,” he wrote. “Law Enforcement must remain apolitical, it is essential in our role to serve ALL New Yorkers regardless of any political beliefs. It is essential for New Yorkers to trust their Police. Updates to follow after initial investigation.”

Chief of Department Terence Monahan criticized the officer for his actions as well.

“When you wear our uniform it is imperative to remain apolitical,” he tweeted. “Behavior like this will not be tolerated and will be dealt with. An update will be provided to the public.”
