De Blasio holds press conference at Trump Tower — and gets heckled


Supporters of Donald Trump disrupted Mayor Bill de Blasio’s press conference in Trump Tower on Monday while he announced a potential $2 million in fines facing the president’s real estate company if it doesn’t comply with the city’s new “Green New Deal” building emissions standards — by 2030.

“Worst mayor ever,” read one sign held by a protester as the mayor rode up and down an escalator.

Other supporters loudly booed and whistled as de Blasio tried to shout over the din.

“This is bull—t,” Juliet Germanotta, 37, told The Post as she displayed an “LGBT for Trump” banner behind the mayor’s podium.

De Blasio told his backers and the hecklers, “Clearly the Trump Organization is a little sensitive to the fact that we’re calling them out for what they are doing to the climate but we are not backing down.”
