Cuomo refuses to join calls to impeach his donor, Donald Trump
While Democratic candidate for governor Cynthia Nixon today called for the impeachment Donald Trump, Governor Andrew Cuomo said that he would instead leave discussion of impeachment to the Senate Republicans. In a characteristic move for New York’s fundraiser-in-chief, Andrew Cuomo refused to join calls to impeach his major donor, Donald Trump - just like he continues to oppose abolishing ICE, even while accepting over $800,000 from donors profiting off of it.
“Donald Trump’s remarks yesterday alongside his corrupt billionaire friend Vladimir Putin made it clear that removing the president is too important to count on partisans who have so far demonstrated zero political courage whatsoever,” said Cynthia Nixon. “Just like he trusted Republicans in New York’s State Senate, Governor Cuomo is once again putting faith in the party of Donald Trump to do the right thing and defy their president. The American people can and will remove Trump -- not corrupt, cowardly Republicans.”
Earlier this month, Cynthia for New York released a series of digital ads calling on Governor Cuomo to return the $64,000 in donations he has received from President Trump. The Governor was asked to respond to the ads at an event in Brooklyn, where he lambasted the President, and yet Cuomo stated that he was going keep the contributions.
