On Wednesday President Trump called the words "Black Lives Matter" a "symbol of hate" in a tweet reacting to reports that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio would have the phrase painted on the street on Fifth Avenue.

NYC is cutting Police $'s by ONE BILLION DOLLARS, and yet the @NYCMayor is going to paint a big, expensive, yellow Black Lives Matter sign on Fifth Avenue, denigrating this luxury Avenue. 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!
