NYC mayor to MTG: ‘Be on your best behavior’
Greene is slated to lead a rally protesting Trump’s indictment at noon on Tuesday with the New York Young Republicans, a group with ties to white nationalists. Her office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Adams, standing with New York Police Department Commissioner Keechant Sewell, said he expects some disruption, but is not worried about violence. There have been no “specific credible threats” made at this point, he said.
The Democratic mayor did have a message for any potential “rabble rousers” like Greene.
“Control yourselves,” he said. “New York City is our home, not a playground for your misplaced anger.”
“As always, we will not allow violence of any kind,” Adams said.
He urged New Yorkers to use public transportation ahead of a likely gridlock and some road closures, including outside Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan.
Despite Trump’s calls for “potential death and destruction” amid the Manhattan district attorney’s hush-money payment investigation, significant protests in recent weeks have not materialized.
One 39-year-old Trump supporter with no criminal history was charged last week with menacing and harassment after allegedly brandishing a knife at a family with two children outside the courthouse. She pleaded not guilty.
