Bloomberg: Hillary Backstabbed NYC

What's a chief diplomat from New York supposed to do? Michael Bloomberg said Hillary Clinton double-crossed New York City by deciding that foreign diplomats should be exempt from certain property taxes, costing the city $260 million. "It's totally unfair," the mayor said. Clinton's former colleague Senator Chuck Schumer also expressed dismay: "We're going to find a way to make sure that these embassies pay and that New York is made whole." The State Department said it is making the change because other countries have threatened to change property taxes on American property abroad. Adding insult to injury, Bloomberg says the State Department is late on paying the city $66 million for police security at United Nations missions.
