President Donald Trump called Amazon's decision not to move forward with its HQ2 plans in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens a "big loss for New York City."




"It's the kind of thinking that our country is going to on the left, on the radical left," Trump said at a press conference on Friday. "But, ultimately, it's not good for jobs and it's not good for the economy."




Many New York politicians and local activists pushed back on Amazon's plans to open part of its second headquarters in Long Island City, Queens, citing concerns that HQ2 could increase homelessness rates, send rents skyrocketing, paralyze public transportation, and create other problems for residents.



President Donald Trump is blaming the "radical left" for Amazon's decision to ditch New York as the site of its second quarters.
In a press conference on Friday, Trump said that Amazon's decision not to go ahead with its HQ2 plans in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens is a "big loss for New York City."
"If you look at the deal, the deal was not a great deal ... they could have made a better deal than that — a much better deal," Trump said. "But still, I think it's a loss for New York City."
