Cuomo Vows to Defeat Trump in Fundraising Letter

Written By Editor on 11/14/16 | 11/14/16

Governor Andrew Cuomo is drawing a line in the sand following the election of President-Elect Donald Trump. Cuomo was an early backer of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

The Governor sent a letter the Saturday after the election as a simultaneous column in the NY Daily News, for fundraising, and on Facebook to make a plea to anyone in the state that may feel let down by the results of the election last week.

"So let me be absolutely clear: If anyone feels that they are under attack, I want them to know that the state of New York – the state that has the Statue of Liberty in its harbor – is their refuge.

Whether you are gay or straight, Muslim or Christian, rich or poor, black or white or brown, we respect all people in the state of New York."

This follows Cuomo's initial reaction following the election. On Wednesday, November 9th the Governor reported having a good conversation with the President-Elect. While Cuomo said that he disagreed with much of Trump's agenda, ultimately he would bring in a knowledge of cities, especially New York, "I think Donald Trump being from New York is a bonus not just for this state, but for other states also," Cuomo said.

In 2009, Trump donated $25,000 toward Cuomo's successful bid for the Governor's mansion. In 2006, Trump donated $26,000 toward his also successful campaign for state Attorney General.

The Governor is expected to mount a campaign for President in 2020.

Cuomo finished his Facebook message, "We are New York, and we will stand up for you. And on that, I will never compromise. Count on it."
