New Yorker and current occupant of the White House, Donald Trump, must be nervous again. He is in a New York state of mind, as Billy Joel might tell us. Trump tweeted this morning:
“It is very hard and expensive to live in New York. Governor Andrew Cuomo uses his Attorney General as a bludgeoning tool for his own purposes. They sue on everything, always in search of a crime. I even got sued on a Foundation which took Zero rent & expenses & gave away…….more money than it had. Going on for years, originally brought by Crooked Hillary’s Campaign Chair, A.G. Eric Schneiderman, until forced to resign for abuse against women. They never even looked at the disgusting Clinton Foundation. Now Cuomo’s A.G. is harassing all of my……..New York businesses in search of anything at all they can find to make me look as bad as possible. So, on top of ridiculously high taxes, my children and companies are spending a fortune on lawyers. No wonder people and businesses are fleeing New York in record numbers!”
Usually when Trump goes on Twitter and does his serial ellipse-loaded tweets, he is nervous about developments. In this case, the Attorney General is doing what she was elected to do – act as the highest legal counsel in the state. Letitia James was elected to serve in that role, and despite Trump’s tweet rant, Cuomo is not directly controlling that elected office.
And rest assured, the Attorney General is not operating or functioning on a political plane but is investigating where corruption and potential crimes occur. A reminder to Trump that his foundation was dismantled, and he is required to not operate non-profits in the state again. If Trump is trying to generate self-pity and lashing out at law enforcement officials as being motivated to attack Trump, one thing is for certain- something negative is about to emerge against Trump.
