Trump Team Spats With De Blasio's Office Over False Alarm at Trump Tower

Posted: Dec 28, 2016 5:30 PM

At New York City's Trump Tower on Tuesday, a suspicious package was found in the lobby. The package ended up being a harmless bag of children's toys, but that discovery was not made until after before the building had been evacuated.

Trump's incoming press secretary Sean Spicer tweeted his gratitude to the NYPD following the incident. That was expected. What was not predicted was the strange reaction Spicer's simple message would receive from Mayor Bill de Blasio's office. After Spicer published his tweet, De Blasio's press secretary offered an immature and uncalled-for retort.

Trump social media director Dan Scavino stepped in to call out Phillip's childish behavior.

I think one thing both sides of this boxing ring can agree on is that no one was hurt.
