According to Fox News, the police questioned the leader of a protest movement in New York City (NYC), who allegedly threatened to burn NYC’s Diamond District, if the State Governor Andrew Cuomo and City Mayor Bill de Blasio didn’t meet with him
The man who referred to himself as the leader of a group called FTP said in an interview with Fox News:
“Today I’m leading a demonstration from Barclay Center at 6 p.m. to City Hall, and that’s the first stop. We’re hoping de Blasio and Cuomo come out and talk to us and give the youth some direction. But if they don’t, the next stop is the diamond district. And gasoline, thanks to Trump, is awfully cheap.”
According to the Fox News reporter, the area allegedly threatened is a district where many of the businesses are owned by Orthodox Jews.
