Governor Andrew Cuomo is blasting President Trump, accusing him of spreading division among Americans.
“I believe this President is un-American. I believe it's un-American to give cover to white supremacists. I believe it's un-American to deny people's basic right to healthcare. I believe it's un-American to deny a young person's dream to go to college,” Governor Cuomo said during a speech at First Baptist Church of Crown Heights on Sunday.
He said unlike “Trump’s America,” New York believes in the promise of equality and opportunity. The governor compared the president to a “scared, small man” in the neighborhood who has a high fence and is afraid of people who are different.
“You may be a slick salesman, who fooled many people in this country, but you didn't fool me and you didn't fool New Yorkers. We know who you are and we're going to rise up and tell this nation the truth about who you are, because when the voice of division is raised, a chorus of unity must rise in response,” Cuomo said.
The governor’s comments come after he caused a controversy last week by saying “America was never that great.” He walked back those comments, but not before President Trump reacted.
“Wow! Big pushback on Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York for his really dumb statement about America’s lack of greatness. I have already MADE America Great Again, just look at the markets, jobs, military - setting records, and we will do even better. Andrew “choked” badly, mistake!” the president tweeted.
