President Trump skewered Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Friday after he threatened to slow-roll a COVID-19 vaccine to New York. The New York governor cited his distrust of Trump, suggesting that the administration was trying to fast-track the vaccine to help their chances in the November election.
Trump tweeted, “Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York wants to put New York at the END of the Vaccine List in that he doesn’t trust the FDA or Federal Government, even though the Vaccines are being developed by the finest Labs in the World.” He also added, “Wish he trusted us on Nursing Homes!” Referring to the city’s tragic COVID-19 death toll in nursing homes under Cuomo’s leadership.
Cuomo claimed, “On the issue of the vaccine, like everything else in this country, it’s partisan and it’s questioned and there’s controversy about it.”
