NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio Plans To Protest At Trump International Hotel Thursday

President-elect Donald Trump would probably appreciate a nice quiet night Thursday, the evening before his inauguration.

But if New York Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) and a few celebrities have anything to say about it, Thursday night at Trump’s New York City International Hotel could end up being a rowdy affair. And not in a good way.

(Granted, Trump will likely spend the night in Washington, D.C., and the Trump International Hotel is a few blocks away from Trump Tower, where the president-elect set up his actual transition office. But that’s beside the point.)

De Blasio plans to join actors Alec Baldwin and Mark Ruffalo, as well as filmmaker and activist Michael Moore, at the hotel on Columbus Circle at 6:00 p.m. Thursday for a protest against Trump.

“As Lincoln once said, here in NYC, let us have faith that RIGHT makes MIGHT,” de Blasio wrote in a series of tweets Monday. “This is New York. Nothing about who we are changed on Election Day. Let’s get to work.” 

Trump did not immediately offer a response to de Blasio.
