New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday sent a warning to President Trump saying that if he returns to New York City he will need an army to protect him.
Cuomo’s unhinged rant was in response to an exclusive story by TheNew York Post that President Trump is going to pull federal funds from lawless cities like New York.
Gov. Cuomo called an emergency press briefing within a half-hour on Wednesday night to not talk about the problems in NYC, but rather to go on a rant about President Trump’s order, which cites New York’s rising murder rate and defunding of the NYPD.
“He better have an army if he thinks he’s gonna walk down the street in New York. New Yorkers don’t want to have anything to do with him,” the Democrat said, all but threatening the commander-in-chief.
“He can’t have enough bodyguards to walk through New York City, people don’t want to have anything to do with him,” Cuomo continued.
“It is more of the same from him. It’s political, it is gratuitous. And it’s illegal. But it is another attempt to kill New York City,” Cuomo said.
The rant didn’t stop there, Cuomo went on and on.
“President Ford said drop dead. President Trump has been actively trying to kill New York City since he’s been elected,” he said.
“I think it’s because he is from New York City and New York City rejected him, always,” Cuomo said. “He was dismissed as a clown in New York City, those who know him best, like him least.”
“He was disrespected in New York City. Nobody took him seriously and he was just a tabloid cartoon.”
Referring to a claim in a recent book by Trump’s niece, Mary Trump, Cuomo said, “his sister, a former federal judge, is disgraced by him.”
After all that gabble, Cuomo attempted to walk back what he just said:
“My comment about the president and bodyguards in New York City, all I’m saying is that he is persona non grata in New York City. And I think he knows that. And he’ll never come back to New York, because New Yorkers will never forget how gratuitously mean he has been to New Yorkers and how many times he’s tried to kill the city that gave him his start and birthed him. That’s what I meant about the bodyguards.”
