Sergeants Benevolent Association President Ed Mullins has demanded New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio resign amid the surging violence in the city.

Mullins gave the Mayor “High Noon”-like ultimatum for him to quit by sundown.

In response to de Blasio's post blasting the 2020 Republican National Convention and President Donald Trump, Mullins wrote:

“We need to hear you RESIGNED as Mayor of NYC."

“We are WAITING. Only a few hours left until sundown."

"Give 8 million people a gift & quit. You ruined NYC, Save the City and step down,” Mullins wrote.

De Blasio, who was blasted by former mayor Rudy Giuliani and Police Benevolent Association president Pat Lynch, gave his thoughts on he convention.

“What did we need to hear this week? Plans to fight COVID-19 and get Americans back to work. What did we hear?"

"Lies about the greatest city in the world and one of the most diverse places on Earth.:

“Because @realDonaldTrump is afraid of diversity. He’s afraid of true greatness,” de Blasio tweeted.

Mayoral press secretary Bill Neidhardt later took aim at the police union bosses.

“Ed Mullins and RNC speaker Pat Lynch do not represent the views of most New Yorkers, let alone rank-and-file,” Neidhardt tweeted.

“They’re a disgrace to the labor movement. Their embrace of a racist President shows how ill-equipped they are to serve a diverse city and a majority-minority force,” Neidhardt added.

De Blasio has regularly bumped heads with Mullins in the past.

The mayor called the union chief a “liar” last month after Mullins criticized him for his handling of the George Floyd protests and the increase in shootings.

In July, NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea blasted de Blasio over the recent surge in violent crime in NYC.

Shea called New York City's recent spike in violence "predictable," considering police budgets have been slashed, and 2,500 inmates have been released from Rikers Island prison.

Shea tore into de Blasio and his administration after the city announced a $1billion cut to the NYPD's budget in response to weeks of protests against racism and police brutality.

"You'll see in the City Council, [a] bow to mob rule," Shea said.

"And let's mark the date on the calendar and how long it's going to be before we're having a conversation about New York is crying out for more police."

"And I think that day has come."
