On Wednesday, New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo threatened President Trump in response to an announcement that the president is looking to review federal funding to “lawless” cities that have allowed anarchist violence.
Cuomo, the New York Post said, “called an emergency press briefing within a half hour on Wednesday night to tear into Trump for the order, which cites New York’s rising murder rate and defunding of the NYPD.”
“He better have an army if he thinks he’s gonna walk down the street in New York. New Yorkers don’t want to have anything to do with him,” Cuomo said.
“He can’t have enough bodyguards to walk through New York City, people don’t want to have anything to do with him,” he added.
The Post added:
On substance, Cuomo said he doubted the legality of Trump’s five-page memo ordering a review of federal funds that can be redirected from New York City, Portland, Seattle and Washington, DC.
“It is more of the same from him. It’s political, it is gratuitous. And it’s illegal. But it is another attempt to kill New York City,” Cuomo said.
“President Ford said drop dead. President Trump has been actively trying to kill New York City since he’s been elected,” he said.
In highly personal and insulting language, Cuomo speculated that Trump wasn’t upset about New York’s soaring murder rate and shootings.
“I think it’s because he is from New York City and New York City rejected him, always,” Cuomo said. “He was dismissed as a clown in New York City, those who know him best, like him least.”
But as quite a few people noted, Trump already has an army. And more — much more.
He, um, actually has one. https://t.co/oaETtEKcd6

Our good friend Jeff Dunetz noted:
@NYGovCuomo Why? Are you going to make him go to a nursing home to kill him?

That’s a threat. Illegal. Pathetic.
As CiC, Trump literally has our entire armed forces at his call. Not that he’d need it. The Secret Service protects the President extremely well.
Plus after how the NYPD has been treated, neither Cuomo nor DeBlasio have any force to call on.

Would that be considered a threat against the President of the United States?

It sure sounds like a threat to us.
I hope Trump rolls into NYC next week like this.😂 pic.twitter.com/XlXDZ3bUOS

Heh. Something tells us quite a few others would as well.
He’s all set! The police union in your state endorsed him.

Then there’s this take:
It was a peaceful threat.

That explains it.
This, by the way, is the modern Democrat Party. Let that sink in.
- NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo issues thinly-veiled threat to businesses: ‘Revisit’ ties to NRA, — consider ‘reputations’
- Dictator Andrew Cuomo Working To Negate Bill Of Rights
- New York Gov. Cuomo Gives 35,000 Felons on Parole the Right to Vote
- NY Governor Cuomo commutes sentence of cop-killing leftist
- Should conservatives boycott New York in response to Cuomo’s fascism?
