Matthew Hamilton reports in Capitol Confidential that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump picked his latest fight Sept. 7 with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. At a state Conservative Party endorsement event Trump questioned how much business has come to the state after New York spent millions on a national advertising campaign for Start-Up. “I guarantee you the money would have been better spent doing something else,” Trump said, according to the newspaper. An audit showed that 408 jobs have been created by the Start-Up NY program. Cuomo answered back saying, “We want to make sure businesses come to New York and locate in New York. We have states all day long trying to steal our businesses and trying to lure them to other states. We’ve made great progress. We’ve cut taxes. We’re a pro-growth, pro-business state. We want people to know that. Obviously the message is effective because last time I checked, Donald Trump is located in the state of New York, right?... Was I shocked that Donald Trump criticized me? Could anyone be shocked that Donald Trump criticized anything?” Read the full story in Capitol Confidential.
