New York City mayor Bill de Blasio has announced his candidacy for the 2020 presidential election.

Announcing his bid on YouTube, the Democrat said: “Donald Trump must be stopped. I’ve beaten him before and I will do it again.”

He added: “I’m running for president because it’s time we put working people first.”

Mr de Blasio announced his bid with a video released by his campaign early Thursday morning.

“There’s plenty of money in this world. There’s plenty of money in this country. It’s just in the wrong hands,” he says.

Mr de Blasio, 58, has drawn small audiences so far in visits to early primary states including Iowa, South Carolina, Nevada and New Hampshire, where an audience of six showed up for a mental health discussion.
