NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – President Donald Trump said Democrats would “rip down the Empire State Building” if Joe Biden wins the presidency in November.

Trump made the outlandish claim on “Fox News Business” Thursday morning when asked about what would happen to the economy in 2021.

“I think it depends on who wins. I think if he wins, you’re going to end up with a disaster,” Trump said of Biden, adding that he expected the Democratic candidate to pass the Green New Deal climate legislation if elected.

“I see his plans. The New Green Deal (sic) is something the likes of which nobody can even comprehend, it’s like drawn by children. It’s drawn by children. It’s so ridiculous,” Trump said.

“But they’re talking about no fossil fuels, which means basically no energy—you’d have to close down half of the businesses in the country,” Trump said. “If you have to rebuild cities, because too much light gets through the windows. ‘So let’s make the windows nice and small, let’s rip down the Empire State Building and replace it with no windows.’”

Trump also attacked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who co-sponsored the Green New Deal legislation in the House, and even predicted she would run against—and defeat—Sen. Chuck Schumer.

“This is not even a smart person, other than she’s got a good line of stuff,” Trump said of AOC. “I mean she goes out and she yaps. These guys—and they’re all afraid of her. Because if you notice all of these progressives are beating the regular Democrats.”

“And Schumer’s going to get beaten by her,” Trump said. “She’s going to run against Schumer. And he knows that. And he’s going to get beaten by her unless he can talk her out of doing it. He has no chance.”
