New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo will meet with President Trump at the White House today. The two have sometimes disagreed on their approaches to the coronavirus pandemic, and other times they’ve praised each other.
Cuomo said his approach today is simple: He’ll tell the truth.
During his daily briefing, a reporter asked Cuomo about his upcoming trip:
“When you head down to the White House today — I think it’s been fair to say that you’ve had to walk a fine line in your dealings with him,” the reporter asked. “How’s this going to continue when you meet with him today.”
“Life is a fine line. Being in government is a fine line. Everything is a fine line … I’ll tell you how you negotiate the fine line: You tell the truth”
Cuomo said the President has “no problem” telling him when he agrees and disagrees with the governor and vice versa.
“Heck with it, just tell the truth,” Cuomo said.
What they’ll discuss: Cuomo said the focus of his meeting with Trump will be on testing. He said said he believes the federal government needs to tackle manufacturing supply chain issues.
“It’s a situation where you need everyone to work together,” the governor said
