De Blasio mocked by protesters at raucous Green New Deal rally inside Trump Tower
De Blasio, who is expected to jump into the Democratic primary any time now, also brought out some Trump supporters who rode the infamous Trump Tower escalator with some homemade signs for the mayor.
"Our message is loud and clear", de Blasio said in the statement. "Cut your emissions or we'll cut something you really care about".
Some Trump supporters joined the protesters who booed and yelled, "You suck!" as the mayor tried to talk over the noise.
The new standards, hailed by advocates as the toughest action by any city on climate change so far, takes aim at the biggest source of greenhouse gases in NY, where buildings account for more than two-thirds of emissions.

Trump suppoters protest as New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio speaks inside Trump Tower about the Green New Deal, serving notice to US President Donald Trump demanding more energy-efficient buildings, including Trump Tower, May 13, 2019 in New York.
De Blasio is considering joining more than 20 other Democrats in a run for the 2020 presidential nomination.
"It's so nice of them to serenade us here at Trump Tower, but clearly, they're uncomfortable about the truth", the mayor said of the expletive-laced jeering and brassy Frank Sinatra tunes pouring over the sound system. "This is the city that has suffered because of global warming and we are still vulnerable", said de Blasio, referencing the devastation caused by Superstorm Sandy in 2012. City officials estimated that the Trump organization would owe upwards of $2.1 million annually starting in 2030 if it does not retrofit the eight buildings it owns in the city.
In front of signs reading "NYC Green New Deal", de Blasio said, "His buildings are one of the biggest polluters in New York City".
He added, "I expect cities all around the world, all around the country, are going to look at this plan and are going to adopt it". Reducing the emissions levels of "large, existing buildings" will lower city emissions output by 10 percent, according to an April press release from the city detailing the plan to decrease citywide emissions 40 percent from 2005 levels by 2030.
According to data shared with the Guardian, eight Trump properties in New York City do not comply with new regulations created to slash greenhouse gas emissions.
Upgrades to buildings in order to meet the new standards are expected to cost owners around $4 billion - a figure that has the city's powerful real estate lobby up in arms. "New York City will not survive without a radical action to stop climate change".
"We will do what's necessary to combat the climate crisis".
