“I love my daughter deeply, I honor her. She is such a good human being, she only wants to do good in the world, she wants to see a better and a more peaceful world. She believes a lot of change is needed,” de Blasio said during a press conference Monday after confirming reports that his daughter, Chiara de Blasio, was arrested.
“I’m proud of her that she cares so much and she was willing to go out there and do something about it,” the mayor added.
Chiara de Blasio was arrested at a Manhattan protest on Saturday night for allegedly blocking a street and refusing to move with other demonstrators.
Bill de Blasio said his daughter had not informed him or his wife, Chirlane McCray, about her “intention to get arrested,” but he knew she had participated in a “peaceful manner” a few nights before.
