De Blasio is expected to call into his weekly segment on WYNC radio, and his schedule for the rest of Friday also includes meeting with the first mayor of Hamburg, Olaf Scholz, the president of the Hamburg Parliament, Carola Alexandra Veit, and attending a reception for G20, according to a schedule put out by de Blasio’s office.

On Saturday, de Blasio will be keynote speaker at the Hamburg Zeigt Haltung (Hamburg Shows Attitude) rally on “human rights and democracy,” where he is expected to speak out against President Trump’s policies.

Hizzoner’s overseas jaunt is being paid for by the rally’s organizers — as is the tab for three City Hall staffers with him.
