On Monday, speaking to Fox and Friends, President Donald Trump said that the New York Governor Andrew Cuomo would be a stronger Democratic opponent running for the White House this November instead of sleepy Joe Biden. The remarks from Trump was after Andrew was elevated nationally for his response to the Empire State's coronavirus outbreak. While Biden was busy holding daily briefings from his Delaware house, Cuomo dominated the airwaves by often taking on Trump's response to the crisis. Interestingly, #PresidentCuomo trended on Twitter as well after the way he handled the situation.
A day later, Governor Andrew Cuomo responded to Trump's remarks. Speaking to the press, Cuomo said - "Look, I understand what the president said before that I thank the president because I take his comments as a compliment. The president commented on a poll that said people were pleased with my leadership, and I thank him for that. That was a compliment. As far as the president's comment about having a political contest with me, I'm not engaging the president in politics. My only goal is to engage the president in partnership. This is no time for politics. I'm not going to get into a political dispute with the president. I'm not going to rise to the bait of a political challenge. I'm not running for president. I was never running for president. I said from day one I wasn't running for president. I'm not running for president even now. I'm not playing politics. I just want the partnership to deal with this, and I said to the president quite clearly look when you do good things for my state, you are a good partner, I will be the first one to say you are a good partner and I have done it previously as well. I went to the ship Comfort today, and I said, 'Thank you, Mr. President.'
Similarly, we opened up this Javits Center, I said thank you to the army. They did a great job here. If I believe that New York is not being served, I will say that too. It's simple, just tell the truth. If the president is doing a wrong thing by New York or to the rest of the country, I'll say it, but I'm not going to engage in politics because it is anti-America. Forget the politics, we have a national crisis. We are at war. There is no politics."
