Thankfully, On the other hand, just months ago Governor Andrew Cuomo took a moment away from defending his romantic hunts to give us another impression of that charming character and tough, bare-knuckle leadership that won him an Emmy award. Don’t feel bad if you miss that.
For some reason, large news networks where Cuomo’s advice was prominently publicized in 2020 have taken a hiatus from featuring him in any capacity. Same like your favorite candy, too much of a good thing is most likely to be the cause.
President Trump has actively sought to punish NYC since day one.
He let COVID ambush New York.
He refuses to provide funds that states and cities MUST receive to recover.
He is not a king. He cannot "defund" NYC.
It's an illegal stunt.

Governor Cuomo said: “Look, you had a lot going on, you had people who were nervous to come forward, you have undocumented people, nervous to come forward, I believe that the federal government had a chilling effect.”
According to the report from CNN, the fact of blaming President Trump is confusing given that it was the Commander-in-Chief himself that tried to send more illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities.
This seems wildly ungrateful. Especially with a potential re-election battle with Andrew Yang, himself a parent of immigrants it will be interesting to see if statements like this one will age quite as well as his “me too” statements from last year.
We will have to wait for his re-election in 2022 and see if this statement will also help excite strong illegal immigrant support.
@NYGovCuomo Andrew Cuomo's racist remarks about a "European virus" are really disgusting. He should be ashamed of himself for stooping that low. The 1918/1919 virus isn't called the USA Virus! #COVID19 https://t.co/mr9YrDX717
