New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio stopped short Wednesday night of throwing his support behind Rudy Giuliani, who is being considered for secretary of state in the Trump administration.

“I have my differences with Rudy Giuliani. I don’t want to tell the president-elect who to choose for his Cabinet. In this city, there are were times when Rudy was not a force for unity. If he is involved in the federal government, I hope he will learn the lesson of some of the things that happened here in New York City,” de Blasio told Fox News’ “Kelly File” about the former city mayor.

Host Megyn Kelly called out de Blasio, alleging the Democratic mayor had his own “moments of not being a force for unity.” Kelly cited de Blasio’s backing Democratic N.Y. Gov. Andrew Cuomo when he said earlier this year that “extreme conservatives” “have no place in the state of New York.”

“I will say differently,” de Blasio responded.

His message for Giuliani was not to “go down the road we saw too often in New York City,” but he did not give details about which specific Giuliani policies or approaches he did not support.
