During an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”, the New York City Mayor stated that he is ending his 2020 presidential bid, adding that he would support whoever wins the Democratic Party's nomination.

Bill de Blasio started his campaign in May with the central message "Working People First", becoming the 24th Democrat to strive to take on President Donald Trump in next year’s election.

US President Donald Trump has promptly reacted to the announcement mocking that the news is "perhaps the biggest story in years".

During the first Democratic Party presidential primary debate in June, Bill de Blasio was the only candidate to name Russia as "the greatest threat to the United States", with his counterparts mainly pointing to China and climate change.

The mayor is prohibited from seeking a third four-year term in New York in 2021.
