President Trump slammed Gov. Andrew Cuomo Monday on guns, high taxes and dared the Democrat to challenge him for the White House in 2020, the NY Post reports.
Speaking at a campaign event in Utica, Trump said Cuomo telephoned him and pledged to “never” run against Trump for president. “But maybe he wants to,” Trump said of Cuomo’s aspirations. “Please do it. Please do it. Please!”
Trump added: “The one thing we know … anybody that runs against Trump suffers. That’s the way it should be.”
Speaking at the rally to support Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-NY) in a tough reelection fight, Trump told supporters Cuomo is the “one reason” New Yorkers have high taxes. The adoring Trump supporters booed. He also said Cuomo wants to “end your Second Amendment.”
