De Blasio: Trump Talking About Shooting Someone ‘Arrogant,’ ‘Not Presidential’

‘We had a moment in our nation’s history we’re talking about how to deal with the scourge of gun violence’

RADDATZ: "Well, that’s good news for everybody up there, and everybody here. I want to ask you a quick question about one of your city’s famous residents, as long as I have you here. Listen to what Donald Trump said about--"
DE BLASIO: "Which one, Martha?"
RADDATZ: "I know you have a lot of them, but you’ll recognize this one. Listen to what Donald Trump said about his candidacy yesterday."
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
TRUMP: "I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters, OK, like incredible."
(END VIDEO CLIP)
RADDATZ: "Got any reaction to that, mayor?"
DE BLASIO: "It’s incredibly insensitive. We had a moment in our nation’s history we’re talking about how to deal with the scourge of gun violence. And for someone who says he wants to be president to say that, it shows he’s just not presidential. And it’s incredibly arrogate, too, for him to suggest that his voters will be with him no matter what he does. You know, this is another indicator that Donald Trump is not ready for primetime."
