President Donald Trump predicted on Monday that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s statement that “America was never that great” will be the “end of [his] career.”
Trump honored ICE and border patrol agents at the White House on Monday and took some time to throw jabs at the New York governor. While the president did not mention Gov. Cuomo by name, Trump did reference his comments about America not being great and predicted they would end his political career.
“Any politicians that get up and say that our country is never great — you heard that — I think that’s the end of that career,” Trump said to audience applause.
When asked about Trump’s slogan, “Make America Great Again,” at an event last week, Cuomo asserted that he did not plan to “Make America great again” because it “was never that great” to begin with. (RELATED: Gov. Cuomo: America Was ‘Never That Great’)
“It was never that great,” Cuomo said. “We have not reached greatness. We will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged. We will reach greatness when discrimination and stereotyping against women, 51 percent of our population, is gone … and every woman is making her full contribution.”
