Trump attacks, then befriends Cuomo, who does not fire back

Sep 16, 2016 12:02 am
Jimmy Vielkind reports for Politico New York that while Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump criticizes Andrew Cuomo, the New York governor, never one to back down from a fight, can hardly muster a bad word about Trump. When Robin Schimminger, a fellow Democrat and the fourth-most senior member of the New York State Assembly, criticized Cuomo and the state’s Start-Up New York program, Cuomo denounced him as an “Albany politician” who should “get in touch with reality” and said he should be “ashamed” for trying to “get a headline.” When Trump criticized the same program for only creating 408 jobs, Cuomo said, “What we’re about is promoting economic development, promoting job growth, and we want to make sure that businesses come to New York and locate in New York.... We want the public to know that. And obviously the message is effective, because the last time I checked, Donald Trump is located in the state of New York.” Matthew Hamilton in Capitol Confidential reports that on Sept. 15, Trump called in to Albany radio station Talk 1300’s “Live from the State Capitol” show, and had more to say about Cuomo. Trump would not directly answer a question about whether Cuomo secretly wants Trump to win so he can run against him for president in 2020. Trump also claimed he got along “very well” with Cuomo, and said that at the 9/11 Memorial event in Manhattan this week, “We had a long talk. We were actually talking to each other for a long while." What about? “Just the weather,” Trump said. “We were just talking about how nice and cool it was. It was actually a beautiful day.”
