Work began Thursday morning on the massive Black Lives Matter mural in front of Trump Tower. A stretch of Fifth Avenue between East 56th and 57th streets was closed to traffic as city Department of Transportation workers began measuring and stenciling the giant yellow letters onto the pavement with spray paint and tape just after 8 a.m.The Mayor Bill de Blasio-sanctioned mural will then be painted by local artists starting at 11 a.m., with Hizzoner expected to show up later.“I’m extremely proud to be here today. Black lives matter,” said retired Manhattan resident Ellen Myers, 70, who was among a small group of bystanders watching the mural go up.

DeBlasio is intent on alienating a fair number of those who live in NYC with this stunt to get back at President Trump. It is so pointed - not just at PDJT but to those to whom Fifth Avenue has always been a symbol of NYC alone with Broadway and Wall Street. DeBlasio and his little black wife are trashing their city’s image.

A precedent has been set. Political messages are now permitted on all New York City streets. It's time for the "conservative resistance" to demand their own massive, street messages. Take the matter to court if Mayor Bill tries to block our messages, just like in Washington DC, where Judicial Watch wants to paint its own message on a public street.

Nothing more than primitive tribalism on display. I thought modern people did not act this way. I thought the left was all about inclusiveness and global acceptance of all peoples from all races. People... I am being turned into a white supremacist before your very eyes and I cannot find sufficient reason to convince myself that I am wrong on the practical application of things. Morally, there are no superior races and all will face their One and True Creator. But socially? I am painted into an intellectual corner here. Someone pull me out of this.

I saw on a program I watched yesterday that The Trump Tower owns the air above the structure. That is what narration said. I have no direct knowledge. I don't much think President Trump needs the street so much so the mayor can use it as his bathroom. Sanction that, Wilhelm!

Trump Tower is a business entity owned by the Trump Organization. The Mayor and City Government deliberately painting that “whatever it turns out to be” on the pavement outside the Trump Tower is an attempt to harm and sabotage that business entity for partisan political purposes. An act that you would figure could end up in a big civil court judgement in favor of the Trump Organization.

I’m surprised the City Attorney thought this was a good idea. It is so pointed that it is clearly a malicious act. If he wanted it in Manhattan, he was pretty dumb to put it right in front of Trump Tower. Changes the character of what he was supposedly doing by putting it on a street in each of the boroughs.

Having grown up near The City, I've always appreciated its grand and majestic skyscrapers and all the different and unique personalities it has. Yeah, it has some warts, but even those make it an Original work of art. DeBlasio has turned NYC into a third world slum city. Trump Tower is on Fifth Avenue. Next to the Trump Tower is Tiffany's not far away is Rockefeller Center and up the street is St Patrick's Cathedral. DeBlasio is no good low life and despicable human being. Why isn't he being run out of town.

President Trump on Friday commuted the sentence of longtime confidant Roger Stone after the former campaign adviser was sentenced to serve three years and four months in prison.The decision capped a saga that has roiled the Justice Department and divided some of the president’s advisers. Stone was set to report to prison on July 14, but his allies had lobbied for a pardon or a commutation, citing his risk of contracting coronavirus while in jail.The move Friday did not come as a surprise, as Trump had at various points in recent months signaled he was leaning toward intervening in Stone’s case.

Dungy, an outspoken and admitted Christian, called the host out on Twitter.

According to the poll conducted by the Washington based thinktank the Democracy Institute, President Trump is neck and neck with his rival Joe Biden on 47 percent. However, Mr Trump would win in the electoral college system by 309 to 229 delegates because he is on course to win the crucial swing states including Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin where he outpolls Vice President Biden by 48 percent to 44 percent.The findings come as the US President went to the iconic Mount Rushmore to make a speech attacking “the angry mobs” who want to erase America’s history.
