While talking about the vaccine developed by Pfizer, President Trump criticized New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Cuomo is a long-time leading critic of the vaccine and recently suggested he might not allow distribution of it in New York.
During an interview on ABC News’ “This Week,” Cuomo cast doubt on the vaccine.
"I think it's going to be a very skeptical American public about taking the vaccine, and they should be."

Here is President Trump’s comment about Cuomo.

Back in September, Cuomo was criticizing the vaccine’s development.
Previously, Cuomo told radio host Howard Stern he would have physically attacked the president saying, “If I wasn’t governor of New York, I would have decked him. Period.”
Cuomo was upset over comments President Trump made about his brother Chris Cuomo.
It’s clear President Trump and Cuomo don’t like each other and have clashed over COVID-19 but there is no doubt the New York governor has done a horrible job with the virus in the Empire State.
It’s reported over 6,000 deaths happened because Cuomo mandated COVID-19 positive elderly patients into nursing home and elder care facilities in New York.
Putting the political dispute aside, it’s outrageous Cuomo is playing politics with COVID-19.
During my interview on Newsmax TV, I called Cuomo dangerous.
“Cuomo is dangerous. The American people need to wake up and watch these governors,” @tomborelli tells Newsmax TV.
