Rudy Giuliani calls Black Lives Matter a ‘Marxist organization’ that’s trying to ‘destroy the police’ – The Sun

RUDY Giuliani has called Black Lives Matter a "Marxist organization" that's trying to "destroy the police."

The former New York Mayor made the comments on Wednesday while speaking to reporters at the White House.

Speaking about current Mayor Bill de Blasio's plans to paint "Black Lives Matter" outside of Trump Tower, Giuliani said he was outraged.

"Black Lives Matter is a Marxist organization run by three avowed Marxists — go check.

"Black Lives Matter has been planning to destroy the police for three years," he said.

"They’ve finally gotten stupid Democrat mayors to agree with them."

Giuliani, who is Trump's lawyer, also blamed de Blasio for the lawlessness that has erupted in the city over the past month.

“Right now murder is up 58 percent under the regressive Democrat mayor who is typical of Democrat mayors all over the country.

"They are a disaster. They are a danger to their people."

On Wednesday, Donald Trump blasted de Blasio's plans to paint the giant lettering outside of his building.

De Blasio declared his intention to create a large activist painting along Fifth Avenue, between 56th and 57th streets on MSNBC's Morning Joe.

But Trump lambasted the mayor's scheme, as well as his intention to defund the NYPD's $6 billion budget.

"And yet the @NYCMayor is going to paint a big, expensive, yellow Black Lives Matter sign on Fifth Avenue, denigrating this luxury Avenue," the President raged.

"This will further antagonize New York’s Finest, who LOVE New York & vividly remember the horrible BLM chant, 'Pigs In A Blanket, Fry ‘Em Like Bacon.'

"Maybe our GREAT Police, who have been neutralized and scorned by a mayor who hates & disrespects them, won’t let this symbol of hate be affixed to New York’s greatest street. Spend this money fighting crime instead!"

Trump's dig came as NYC City Council approved a $1 billion budget cut to the NYPD on Wednesday morning.

De Blasio and Trump's Twitter feud continued as the mayor responded "the fact that you see it as denigrating your street is the definition of racism."

"Here’s what you don’t understand: Black people BUILT 5th Ave and so much of this nation," de Blasio claimed.

"Your 'luxury' came from THEIR labor, for which they have never been justly compensated. We are honoring them."
