That’s not at all nice. No imagination!” the president wrote. The mayor stood in front a sign Monday with the phrase “Promises Made, Promises Kept” at a groundbreaking for a school in East New York. Trump’s campaign has used the slogan in multiple videos touting what the president has done since taking office, and the phrase has appeared on signs at his rallies. But the slogan was used well before Trump, including on campaign buttons to re-elect President Bill Clinton and Vice President Al Gore in 1996. De Blasio responded to Trump about 35 minutes after he posted the tweet, writing, “The difference is that I’m not lying when I say it.” Trump recently feuded with another New York politician, attacking Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Twitter after the governor said America “was never that great.” Cuomo was attempting to criticize Trump’s well-known campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again.” By Nicole Brown email@example.com @ncb417 Nicole Brown is the Internet News Manager at amNY.com, covering local news since 2016.
