Rudy Giuliani left an indelible impact on New York City. The mafia controlled the Big Apple through monopolies in seemingly legitimate business and ruthless coercion. By the time he ran for mayor, the most powerful La Cosa Nostra families were a shell of their former selves.
At 76, he’s not interested in running for mayor again. However, his 34-year-old son Andrew is. It would be a much welcome change after Bill de Blasio’s chaotic rule. (New York Post)
“I am certainly thinking about it. It’s something that a bunch of people that I trust have approached me with,” the younger Giuliani told The Post. “It’s been terrible to see over the last few years how the city has spiraled. I am afraid if the right candidate doesn’t win in 2021, four more years of de Blasio’s policies will remind us of the 80s.”
“Mayor de Blasio’s administration has failed New York as he does not value the New York Police Department and he does not value what they have done for the city,” Giuliani continued, singling out recent budget cuts and the disbanding of the NYPD’s undercover anti-crime unit.
Andrew Giuliani has spent more than three years working in the White House as a public liaison assistant to President Trump and — like his father — has developed a close working relationship with the billionaire. They sometimes meet four times a week when things get busy. His portfolio involves interfacing between the White House and a variety of business, nonprofit and other groups.
“We deal with everyone from Tim Cook to Kim Kardashian and everybody in between,” he said.
