New York city mayor Bill de Blasio has banned all large gatherings in New York but says the protests “will go on”. Bill De Blasio was joined by his wife Chirlane McCray when they joined activists on Thursday to paint Black Lives Matter on the street.
De Blasio does this as violence soars by over 100% in the city and businesses are still locked down and the economy in New York is hemorrhaging.
Bill de Blasio tells Wolf Blitzer that he is banning all large gatherings in New York City except for Black Lives Matter protests. Wolf Blitzer follows up by asking about the U.S. Open.
