New York governor Andrew Cuomo said he would not shy away from the truth when he meets with Trump at the White House later today.
“Life is a fine line,” Cuomo said. “Being in government is a fine line … I tell you how I negotiate the fine line: you tell the truth.”
New York governor Andrew Cuomo said his White House meeting today with Trump would focus on testing and the role the federal government can play in expanding capacity.
Cuomo said he understood why Trump wanted to be left out of the “blame game” surrounding testing insufficiencies, but he emphasized the federal government had a vital role to play in expanding testing.
