Trump Says New York Can Never Be Great Again Under Cuomo, Gov. Hits Back

President Donald Trump claimed that New York cant be great under its current leadership, including Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Trump this week changed his primary residence from New York to Florida. The president, born in the borough of Queens, said on Oct. 31: “I cherish New York, and the people of New York, and always will, but unfortunately, despite the fact that I pay millions of dollars in city, state and local taxes each year, I have been treated very badly by the political leaders of both the city and state. Few have been treated worse.”

Trump added the next day that Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, both Democrats, are partially to blame for the move.

“I love New York, but New York can never be great again under the current leadership of Governor Andrew Cuomo (the brother of Fredo), or Mayor Bill DeBlasio,” he wrote in a statement posted to Twitter.

“Cuomo has weaponized the prosecutors to do his dirty work (and to keep him out of jams), a reason some dont want to be in New York, another reason theyre leaving.”

….in New York, and another reason they are leaving. Taxes and energy costs are way too high, Upstate is being allowed to die as other nearby states frack & drill for Gold (oil) while reducing taxes & creating jobs by the thousands. NYC is getting dirty & unsafe again, as….

Trump said taxes and energy costs are high and noted that Cuomo has blocked fracking in upstate New York, which the president said has led to lower tax revenues in addition to job losses.

The city, he added, “is getting dirty and unsafe again” and police arent being treated well with little support from Cuomo or de Blasio.

“New Yorks Finest must be cherished, respected, and loved. Too many prople [sic] are leaving our special New York. Great leaders would work with a President and Federal Government that wants our wonerful [sic] City and State to flourish and thrive. I Love New York!” he concluded.

Manhattan Attorney General Cyrus Vance is currently engaged in trying to obtain eight years of Trumps tax returns.
