Mayor de Blasio brought his ambitions for the presidency to Iowa on Saturday night, where he uses a strategy of head-scratch campaign: Trash talks with Hillary Clinton and praise of President Trump – and still not explain his candidacy.
Only 25 Residents of Sioux City braved a blizzard when they heard that Hizzoner insisted that he would do a better job with Clinton than leading Democrats. Clinton spent too much time ruining her Republican opponent in 2016, complained the mayor.
"We will not win if we talk about Donald Trump," said the mayor in a bar. The local bar was a blizzard.
"I have great respect for our previous candidate ̵
"Indeed, I believe 'People wanted to talk about the problems at the kitchen table,' said the mayor, dressed in jeans and tank top for the event. The presidential candidates in Iowa are the first voices to be counted in presidential campaigns.

"It does not work well for its current one Customers, "de Blasio said, laughed from the crowd, which were mostly members of the Woodbury County Democratic Party.
The mayor defended his progressive confidence in a question-and-answer session with reporters by saying Bernie Sanders , Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and ElizabethWarren are "related" spirits.
He also gave the President an unexpected compliment and said, "Do not go to Donald Trump when it comes to strategy. He should not be underestimated.
In the New York Times (Saturday), he brought with him an opinion in which he accused him of traveling to Iowa because "he was apparently bored running one of the largest cities in the world.
Asked by the column he was sniffing, he asked, "I find this kind of analysis superficial.
The mayor is scheduled to speak in a Des Moines union on Sunday afternoon before returning to New York that night.
