More than 140 characters, shorter than 'What it Takes.' Enjoy!

<p>The election of Republican Donald Trump means 'Washington aint coming to the rescue' for people who want to see criminal justice reform, according to a Queens lawmaker who is still pushing his <a href="http://on.nyc.gov/2gd21Wl" target="_blank">two-year-old</a> bill to criminally ban police chokeholds.</p>

To work with, or oppose Trump, that is the question. +Rep. Hakeem Jeffries offers an answer for Democrats. Also, some shade tossed at Rep. Keith Ellison, candidate for DNC chairman.
<p>Should Democrats oppose everything Donald Trump does -- in order to underscore their opposition to his divisive rhetoric -- or work with him selectively, to show the public their party is not "the party of no" like Republicans were under President Barack Obama.</p>

"Democrats, too, have to a large extent not taken care of working people, and that’s the reason why so many Democrats have left the party.”
Back in 2014, when he asked voters to re-elect him to a 23rd and final term in Congress, U.S. Rep. Charlie Rangel said he wanted to “wrap" his career up with Barack Obama. Now, soon to leave Washington for good, the Harlem Democrat, to put it mildly, is flummoxed.

On Trump's Day 1, +Billdeblasio said don't expect "everything changes"

The only other candidate to get double-digit support was former City Council speaker Christine Quinn, who got 11 percent.
In a head-to-head match-up, 34 percent of registered voters in New York City said they would vote to re-elect Mayor Bill de Blasio, more than twice the amount of his nearest rival, City Comptroller Scott Stringer.
