Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) on Tuesday asserted that President Donald Trump “caused the COVID outbreak in New York” and is now “trying to actively kill New York City.”

Cuomo made the remarks during his daily COVID-19 briefing, where he blamed the president for refusing to provide funds to state and local governments.

“Not only did he tell New York City to drop dead, Trump is actively trying to kill New York City,” the governor charged. “It is personal, I think it is psychological. He is trying to kill New York City.”

“Donald Trump caused the COVID outbreak in New York,” he continued. “That is a fact. It’s a fact that he admitted and the CDC admitted and [Dr. Anthony Fauci] admitted.”

According to Cuomo, Trump ignored the fact that many of the cases in New York originated in Europe, not China.

“They missed it!” he exclaimed. “The China virus went to Europe… They never even thought of the possibility. And then 3 million Europeans got on a plane and came to New York. And they brought the virus. January, they brought the virus. February, they brought the virus. March, they brought the virus. And in mid-March, the federal government does a travel ban from Europe. Too little, too late, Mr. President.”

Cuomo added: “He caused the COVID outbreak in New York. Donald Trump and his incompetent CDC and his incompetent NIH and his incompetent Department of Homeland Security.”

Trump takes his COVID-spreader show to Omaha — in search of a key electoral vote

Published

Donald Trump’s super-spreader campaign rallies generally don’t matter in the big picture of things. But there’s one happening this evening that’s a little different.

Trump will be taking over a ramp at 7:30 p.m. at Omaha’s Eppley Airfield. It is being billed as an outdoor event with “strong precautions” in place to prevent the spread of a pandemic disease that the main speaker will be telling his audience is fake news. And they’re hoping to draw 10,000 potential pandemic patients.

The reason Trump is in Omaha is the same one that President Barack Obama was there in 2008: a recognition that the Nebraska 2nd congressional district’s one electoral vote could literally decide the fate of the free world. Nebraska and Maine are the only two states that portion delegates in part by congressional districts.

Trump’s lenders forgave hundreds of millions in debt — but he paid virtually no taxes on it: NYT

Published

on

On Tuesday, The New York Times released the latest in a lengthy series about their findings within President Donald Trump's tax returns — this time, how he managed to punt or avoid millions of dollars in debt from constructing the Trump Tower in Chicago, while still not paying taxes on the amount he was forgiven.

"The president’s federal income tax records, obtained by The New York Times, show for the first time that, since 2010, his lenders have forgiven about $287 million in debt that he failed to repay. The vast majority was related to the Chicago project," reported David Enrich, Russ Buettner, Mike McIntire, and Susanne Craig. "How Mr. Trump found trouble in Chicago, and maneuvered his way out of it, is a case study in doing business the Trump way."
