Trump 2020 Supporters CRASH Green New Deal Rally

Protesters gather as Mayor Bill de Blasio holds a Green New Deal rally at Trump Tower in New York City

Your polluting buildings are part of the problem, ' he said. All premises larger than 25,000 feet - a total of 50,000 buildings - will be required to cut overall emissions 40 percent or face annual fines.

New York City's own Green New Deal plan - officially called The Climate Mobilization Act and modeled after the one proposed in Congress by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. - passed the City Council last month in a 45-2 vote. He said the decision to hold a rally in the lobby of Trump Tower was independent of any presidential ambitions and he promised to name other potential violators publicly in the future.

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. "Cut your emissions or we'll cut something you really care about: We'll take your money".

Eight of his properties in New York City do not comply with new regulations created to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

The rally was ostensibly to put the city's landlords-including the Trump organization -on notice that failure to comply with city legislation requiring buildings to drastically slash their carbon emissions could result in heavy fines.

City officials said the president's eight largest NY properties pump out around 27,000 tons of planet-warming gases every ear. Trump Tower will pay almost $470,000 unless improvements are made.

De Blasio, who had previously vowed to outlaw glass-and-steel skyscrapers, scheduled the conference at the Trump Tower, a glass-and-steel tower in New York City's Midtown.

But one protester holding an "LGBT for Trump" banner wasn't impressed with the mayor's message and accompanying threats, telling the Post, "This is bullsh**".

NY has positioned itself as a bulwark against Trump administration attempts to dismantle action to address climate change. "With flames on our hillsides and floods in our streets, cities can not wait another moment to confront the climate crisis with everything we've got". The city plans to be carbon neutral by 2050. De Blasio has set a target of cutting greenhouse gas emissions 80 percent below 2005 levels by 2050.

Buildings are responsible for almost 70 percent of greenhouse gas emissions in the city, the mayor's office said in a statement.

The Trump Organization did not immediately respond when contacted by Newsweek.
