NY Governor Cuomo: I Don’t Trust the President and I Don’t Trust the FDA

NY Governor Cuomo: “I Don’t Trust the President and I Don’t Trust the FDA”

Yesterday, NY Governor Andrew Cuomo had a quick on-air chat with Joy Reid of MSNBC’s the ReidOut – during which, Mrs. Reid asked him about President Trump’s latest tweet on Twitter.

The President had suggested that the Governor wanted to put New York at the end of the Vaccine List due to his lack of trust. To which, the Governor not only responded with his own tweet but called into the television news talk show.

Ms. Reid asked Mr. Cuomo if he took Mr. Trump’s statement as a threat.

“Yeah that’s called a threat,” said the Governor. “That’s called I will put New York at the end of the list. That’s what he’s trying to say. Look, I don’t trust the President and I don’t trust the FDA.”

“The doctor who you just had on your show was exactly right. They have lied about COVID from day one. They lied in January when Peter Navarro had the memo saying 2 to 3 million people would get infected and they denied it.

They denied COVID was here. They’re denying it now. The doctor is exactly right, Joy. They’re actually doing fewer tests. Florida now does fewer tests than they did 2 months ago. This is the Trump doctrine. Do fewer tests so you will show fewer cases. Remember he said if you test less, we’ll have fewer cases. That’s what he’s doing.

The vaccine, he said yesterday, that the FDA was being political in saying that they actually wanted to review the vaccine. So yeah, the American people don’t trust the FDA. They shouldn’t. Trump has politicized this entire situation. He’s overridden health and science with politics.“

The tweet posted by the President is as follows:

“”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. Wish he trusted us on Nursing Homes!””

 

To which, Governor Cuomo responded with his own tweet:

“”Mr. President, stop making illegal threats. Maybe you will wake up your DOJ. You said yourself that the FDA was making “a political move” on vaccines. Surely Americans can’t trust a political FDA. Don’t you remember saying that? I guess it’s hard to keep track of all the lies.””

“”You want us to trust you on Covid? FACT: Your Covid record: 203,000 deaths. More Americans die every day from Covid than in China, Italy, France, the UK, and Spain COMBINED. Are all of those leaders better than you?””
