During a presser on Tuesday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said that President Trump has shown a willingness to cooperate with those who oppose him, setting aside political differences to help the people of this country.
The rare positive remarks from the Democratic governor were wrapped in a call for unity among all Americans amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The Daily Wire reports Cuomo called for an end to “this hypersensitivity about politics” and Americans should help one another.
“I spoke to the president this morning again. He is ready, willing, and able to help,” said Cuomo. “I think the president was 100% sincere in saying that he wanted to work together in partnership and in a spirit of cooperation. Steps he has taken are evidence of that.”
“His team has been on it. I know a team when they are on it. I know a team when they are not on it,” the Democrat continued. “His team is on it. They have been responsive late at night, early in the morning. And they’ve thus far been doing everything that they can do, and I want to say thank you, and I want to say that I appreciate it, and they will have nothing but cooperation and partnership from the state of New York.”
Cuomo then said the two leaders are setting an example for all those around the country in how to deal and treat those who may disagree with one another politically.
He cautioned people to shy away from recognizing people by their political affiliation, saying: “We are not Democrats, and we are not Republicans. We are Americans, at the end of the day.”
“That’s who we are,” he continued. “And that’s who we are when we are at our best. So, this hypersensitivity about politics and reading every comment and wanting to pit one against the other, there is no time for this. The president is doing the right thing in offering to step up with New York. And I appreciate it. New York will do the right thing in return.”
