Donald Trump have been having it out with New York officials since the beginning of his presidency because Trump had reflected so poorly on his home state that they literally wanted nothing to do with him. Ever since 2015, Trump has been a N.Y. outcast, and he’s hated every minute of it.
Trump used to claim New York as his, and now, he won’t claim it at all.
Trump has especially targeted NY governor Andrew Cuomo, and he hates his brother, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo as well. Don and Andrew have gotten into it many times over the president’s biased way of running the nation, and Friday, they are going at it again.
Cuomo just blasted Trump for insinuating that NY officials were lying about the number of ventilators they needed to combat the coronavirus outbreak there; the worst in all the country. To Trump, this is all just an attempt to make him look bad.

Cuomo said this to the president:
“Everybody’s entitled to their own opinion, but I don’t operate here on opinion, I operate on facts and on data and on numbers and on projections.”
Cuomo was responding to something Trump said on Fox News:
“I don’t believe you need 40,000 or 30,000 ventilators. You know, you go into major hospitals, sometimes they’ll have two ventilators. And now all of a sudden they’re saying, ‘Can we order 30,000 ventilators?’ “
Trump is really freaking out about the ventilator thing too. Check out this crazy tweet from Friday morning:
General Motors MUST immediately open their stupidly abandoned Lordstown plant in Ohio, or some other plant, and START MAKING VENTILATORS, NOW!!!!!! FORD, GET GOING ON VENTILATORS, FAST!!!!!! @GeneralMotors @Ford
