Trump just attacked Governor Cuomo over America’s “greatness” and Cuomo’s response is epic

- 17.20

The president has been berating New York Governor Andrew Cuomo for the past few days after Cuomo made the bizarre decision to announce that America’s never really been that great, which is a debatable point but probably not a good political message to run on.

Trump has seized on this as an easy way to rip on Democrats and prove that they don’t believe in his mission and don’t want to “make American great.” He took to Twitter this morning to link Cuomo to Hillary Clinton and bash them both for their statements and rile up his base.

The embattled Cuomo, facing serious barrages from both the right and from leftist primary challenger Cynthia Nixon, took to Twitter and fired off a scorching response that hits Trump right where it hurts and to make it clear what he considers “great” about America.

The entire debate over America’s “greatness” is ridiculous in the first place. “Make America Great Again” is a narcissistic delusion steeped in toxic nationalism and implicit white supremacy; we should refrain from engaging with Trump on his own terms and allowing him to set the parameters of greatness.

But this backbone from Cuomo is a welcome surprise from a man who gerrymandered his own statehouse to give Republicans control and to prevent any real progress from disturbing the status quo his Wall Street donors love so dearly.
