Even as Donald Trump continues to putz around and make the coronavirus crisis even worse, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo continues to step up and provide leadership. With New York City now the epicenter of the U.S. coronavirus outbreak, Cuomo is sounding the alarm about the Trump regime’s unwillingness to provide the city with needed resources:
NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo on the Defense Production Act and supplies:
“FEMA says ‘we’re sending 400 ventilators.’ Really? What am I going to do with 400 ventilators when I need 30,000? You pick the 26,000 who are going to die because you only sent 400 ventilators.”#CheddarLive pic.twitter.com/VdCdX5jLf1

Here’s what is particularly disturbing about the Trump regime’s unwillingness to send most of its ventilators to New York. Donald Trump knows he won’t win any electoral college votes from New York in November anyway. Is he sitting on the ventilators so he can give them to a red state or swing state when a major outbreak happens there? Trump appears to be playing games with Americans’ lives yet again.
