President Trump unloaded on New York Governor Andrew Cuomo Friday morning, asking how the liberal leader can “survive” after he said the United States of America was “never great.”
The Commander-in-Chief ripped Cuomo on social media days after the Governor said America “was never that great” during a speaking event; citing inequality for women and minorities across the country.
“How does a politician, Cuomo, known for pushing people and businesses out of his state, not to mention having the highest taxes in the U.S., survive making the statement, WE’RE NOT GOING TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, IT WAS NEVER THAT GREAT? Which section of the sentence is worse?” asked Trump.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo walked-back his recent incendiary comments about America’s “greatness” Thursday; clarifying a recent statement after the left-wing leader came under fire from both sides of the political aisle.
Cuomo was speaking at an event in New York this week when he abruptly declared “America was never that great,” citing inequality for women and other minorities living in the United States.
The Governor’s office released a statement clarifying his message Thursday morning, saying “The Governor believes America is great and that her full greatness will be fully realized when every man, woman, and child has full equality.”
“When the President speaks about making America great again – going back in time – he ignores the pain so many endured and that we suffered from slavery, discrimination, segregation, sexism and marginalized women’s contributions,” adds the statement.
