'Abuse of corporate power': Bill de Blasio slams Amazon for cancelling HQ2 deal

Monday 17:14 GMT

New York mayor Bill de Blasio, mulling a presidential run, sought on Sunday to burnish his progressive credentials by accusing Amazon of caring only about “corporate image” when it abruptly decided to pull out of building its second headquarters, or HQ2, in Long Island City. The tech giant’s decision, de Blasio said, was “arbitrary and unfair to working people”.

Speaking to NBC’s Meet the Press, the mayor said Amazon walked away from a “good, fair deal” and committed an “abuse of corporate power” when it announced on Thursday it would cancel the project without further negotiation, informing city and state leaders in a post on its website.
