Mayor de Blasio slammed President Trump on Twitter Saturday as “pathetic” — a day after the president took a veiled swipe at Hizzoner while speaking to cops on Long Island.

“.@realDonaldTrump, the only thing weak and ‘pathetic’ is using your power as president to divide the country and threaten our communities,” the mayor fumed from his personal @BilldeBlasio account.

The playground spat came a day after Trump cited an unnamed “pathetic mayor” who won’t allow cops to “do their jobs” during a speech at Suffolk County Community College in Brent­wood, LI.

“I’ve met great police who aren’t allowed to do their jobs because they have a pathetic mayor,” the president told a crowd of assembled officers.

The jab elicited cheers — to which the commander in chief quipped, “Were you applauding for someone in particular?”
