Protesters gathered outside New York City Hall following New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s “walking-out” ceremony. According to images Thursday, the protesters waved Trump 2024 flags and displayed negative signs about de Blasio as he gave his farewell speech.

The Democrat, who’s term ended Friday, was reportedly unpopular amongst Trump supporters due to COVID vaccine and mask mandates. During the press briefing, he reflected on why he chose to run for office.

“And eight years ago, we had a vision of fighting inequality,” stated de Blasio. “We really believed it had to be done and we felt it urgently. And I knew that if this city didn’t change, we weren’t going to make it for the long term. It just wasn’t going to work. I really felt the New York City we loved was slipping away.”

New York mayor-elect Eric Adams will be taking office Saturday. Adams will reportedly keep the majority of de Blasio’s COVID mandates in place until reassessing this winter.
