President Trump and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo have been feuding for months, and it appears President Trump is taking that feud to the next level.
In a Tweet, the President called Cuomo, “one of the WORST governors in the USA.”
One of the WORST governors in the USA. Caused 11,000 deaths in nursing homes alone due to his bad moves and incompetence. At least he said I “did a phenomenal job”. But he didn’t!!! https://t.co/6FYYHJEeQB

According to Fox News:
The president’s tweet was in response to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s tweet, where he stated “shootings in New York City are up 166% over last year” and “Cuomo wants 4,000 police assigned to checking restaurants for covid enforcement.”
Shootings in new york city are up 166% over last yesr so Governor Cuomo wants 4,000 police assigned to checking restaurants for covid enforcement. Is he just deranged or so arrogant no one can talk sense to him?

Gingrich’s tweet was referring to Cuomo’s announcement Wednesday that restaurants in New York City could reopen at 25% capacity for indoor dining beginning Sept. 30.
The governor has suggested assembling a task force of 4,000 New York Police Department officers to enforce social distancing restrictions in restaurants. On Wednesday, he announced team of 400 enforcement personnel will work with the State Police Task Force to ensure compliance in New York City restaurants.
Cuomo stated that his plan required temperature checks of patrons at the door and that one member of each party must leave contact information with the establishment for contact tracing purposes.
