Bill de Blasio 2020 AnnouncementBill de Blasio "Working People First" Video Announcement

Bill de Blasio: There's plenty of money in this world. There's plenty of money in this country. It's just in the wrong hands.

Here in New York City, a place that is legendarily tough and big and complicated—

Good thing about New Yorkers is they look the same whether they're really pissed off at you or they like you.

We build an agenda that puts working families first.

We had to fight all over the city, all over the state, to make sure that people got a decent wage. We are raising the wage to $15 an hour.

Waitresses and dishwashers and store clerks and people who work in small manufacturing firms, the backbone of New York City, you will have the legal guarantee for the first time of paid sick leave.

This has never existed anywhere else in this country. Fully comprehensive guaranteed health care. My wife Chirlane and I believe health care is a human right. It has to be available for all, it has to be affordable, and it has to include mental health services.

Chirlane: Everything begins with being healthly and there's no health without mental health.

Bill de Blasio: Today, we announced free full day, high quality pre K.

Chirlane: People come up to Bill every day and thank him for making that possible. It makes a real difference in the child's life; it makes real difference in the family's life.

de Blasio: Doesn't matter if you live in a city or a rural area, a big state, a small state; doesn't matter what your ethnicity is. People in every part of this country feel stuck or even like they're going backwards. But the rich got richer.

I'm a New Yorker. I've known Trump's a bully for a long time. This is not news to me or anyone else here, and I know how to take him on.

When Donald Trump started separating families —

de Blasio clip: Our message to the federal government is simple. Stop this broken inhumane policy right now.

— we sent lawyers to the border to help protect those families.

When he told us he was going to cut off our security funding, we took him to court and we beat him.

When we saw our national government walk away from the Paris Agreement, we doubled down.

Bill de Blasio: This battle to save our earth will be won or lost in our lifetime. There's no second chance.

Don't back down in the face of the bully; confront him, take him on.

As president I will take on the wealthy, I will take on the big corporations, I will not rest until this government serves working people. As mayor of the largest city in America, I've done just that.

Woman: de Blasio for president, guys.

Bill de Blasio: Donald Trump must be stopped. I've beaten him before and I will do it again.

I'm Bill de Blasio and I'm running for president because it's time we put working people first.
