Trump vs. Cuomo on COVID-19 pandemic

As COVID-19 is spreading across the U.S., President Trump and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo continue to contradict one another when it comes to measures they say must to be taken.

Trump contradicts his home state’s governor

Who is Governor Cuomo?

Governor Andrew Cuomo was born on December 6, 2957 in Queens to a lawyer and governor of New York. He received a degree from Fordham University in 1979 and a law degree from Albany Law School in 1982. After working as a New York assistant district attorney, he founded Housing Enterprise for the Less Privileged (HELP) in 1986 and became chair of the New York Homeless Commission in 1990. He was a member of President Bill Clinton’s administration as the eventual Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, but his tenure was clouded by accusations of racial discrimination against his employees. He was the Attorney General of New York from 2007 to 2010, and has now been the Governor of New York since 2011.

“We’re not going to accept a premise that human life is disposable. And we’re not going to put a dollar figure on human life. The first order of business is save lives. Period. Whatever it costs,” Governor Cuomo commented on March 24. As of March 26, there have been 68,534 cases in the United States in all 50 states with 990 deaths.

How to prevent the virus

Since the coronavirus taskforce predicts that a coronavirus vaccine will not be perfected for another year or year and a half, it is best to start looking into at-home prevention methods. Health professionals are asking citizens to stop buying medical masks as they are often worn improperly, and tend to be more effective for those with the virus rather than those trying to avoid getting sick. Also, the mass stockpiling of these devices are preventing medical workers from having the proper supplies. Other known prevention methods include rigorously and frequently washing hands, using hand sanitizer if soap is unavailable, disinfecting any and all surfaces, and preparing medicine and food supplies in case of infection.

    You didnt say what year and what Easter next year or the year’s after that cos if you don’t help people NOW, it’s going to stay a lot longer in your country and really all Americans are worth more than your giving them. You are the nastiest president that America has ever had (another Hitler).

    Cant blame the president for poorly run states. Look at Texas, prevailing again through a economic crisis. Maybe Democrats should take note 🤷‍♂️

    President Trump is an American warrior who loves his country and the people in it. All the Communists, all the Socialist, all the fascist and all the traitors of all our rights freedoms and liberties will find out this November when 150 million Patriots who love this country stand up and not only vote Donald Trump back in, but also drain the swamp in Washington of all of it's lying, cheating, deceiving, evil corruption!! 🇺🇸 President Trump fights for the people of this country every second of the day!! President Trump is a warrior, because I've never seen a man take the beating that this man takes from Hollywood, the music industry, the Press, special interest, bureaucrats, lobbyist, the crazy insane left liberals, the wacky do nothing Democrats, all the communist, all the socialist, and all the Traders of our country and he still stays calm and gets the job done. You have a right to believe what you want to believe! But I absolutely know he is definitely A WARRIOR FOR THE PEOPLE OFTHE UNITED STATES OF 🇺🇸 AMERICA!! 🇺🇸

    Cuomo thought it would be a good idea to place COVID19 patients in retirement homes. He is responsible for about 5,000 deaths.
