ALBANY, NY – President Donald J. Trump’s Friday evening address to the American people took aim at the reckless political banter of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and made the governor look like a tool to the entire nation. Cuomo has been playing hardline politics with Trump saying he will not roll out a “Trump Vaccine” to New Yorkers. New York has suffered from the COVID-19 pandemic more than any other state and Trump let Cuomo know it on national television
“The governor decided to say, he wants to take his time with the vaccine and doesn’t trust where it’s coming from,” Trump said of Cuomo. “The vaccine is coming from the greatest companies and laboratories in the world, but he doesn’t trust that it’s this White House, this administration and so, we won’t be delivering it to New York until we have authorization do so. That pains me to say that. This a very successful vaccine. Governor Cuomo will have to let us know when he’s ready. We can’t be delivering it to a state where the governor won’t give it to the people.”
“I hope he doesn’t handle this as badly as he handled nursing homes,” Trump said of Cuomo, referring to the deaths of thousands of eldery long-term care patients as a result of an order to force those facilities to take infected COVID-19 patients back in March.
