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.

    Andrew Cuomo is a true leader. Please Donald J. Trump to go Jail and let him die from Coronavirus soon. "Forget the politics. Forget the politics! We have a national crisis. We are at war. There is no politics. There is no red and blue. It's red, white and blue. So let's get over it."

    If the idiot 45th don't want to work with anyone, maybe the states shouldn't have to send the tax money to the federal government.
