In a tweet this Monday morning, President Trump threw some slight shade at New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, singling him out and suggesting that he's not doing enough to fight against the burgeoning coronavirus is in his state.
"Just had a very good tele-conference with Nations’s Governors," Trump tweeted. "Went very well. Cuomo of New York has to “do more."
Cuomo wasted no time in firing back at Trump, telling him that ultimately he's the president so the buck stops with him.
"I have to do more?" Cuomo wrote. "No — YOU have to do something! You’re supposed to be the President."
