(WASHINGTON) — New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio says he met with President-elect Donald Trump and “let him know that so many New Yorkers are fearful” of what his administration could bring.
De Blasio spoke to reporters after his hour-long meeting at Trump Tower Wednesday, which he categorized as “respectful” and “candid” with a real “give-and-take.”
The mayor, a liberal Democrat, and Trump have previously clashed. He said concerns with Trump’s support of aggressive policing tactics, his tax plans and any move to deport immigrants living in the United States illegally.
De Blasio said that Trump “loves this city” and added that he urged the Republican president-elect to send a “sign of unity” to his hometown, which overwhelmingly voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton.
