Reuters reports that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is the latest to enter the crowded 2020 presidential race,
arguing that his record of progressive accomplishments in the country's biggest city positioned him as the perfect foil to President Donald Trump.
Bill de Blasio, 57, launched his candidacy with the central campaign message "working people first", becoming the 24th Democrat seeking to take on Trump in the election next year.
In a video released on Thursday de Blasio returned to the theme of income inequality that had animated his first mayoral campaign in 2013
when he emerged as a leading voice for the burgeoning left-wing that has since reshaped his party.
