Gov Cuomo Tells Brother on CNN That Trump has Been ‘Very Helpful’ but He Doesn’t Know About Missing Masks

Last night on CNN Chris Cuomo interviewed his brother New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D). The interview started off with Gov Cuomo praising President Trump saying, “the president has been very helpful, the (USNS) Comfort has been very helpful, the Javits Center, 2500 beds, I’ll tell you Chris, the Army Corp of Engineers have been very helpful.”

Trump took to Twitter this morning to thank the Governor for the kind words and tagged Fox and Friends also.

New York Governor Cuomo says President Trump has been “very helpful.” @foxandfriends Thank you, everybody is working very hard!

Later on in the interview, Chris played the clip from the daily White House press briefing where Trump asked reporters to find out what might be happening to masks in hospitals in New York. He then asks the Governor, “what’s your response?”

Gov Cuomo chuckles and then says that he “doesn’t know what he means”.

Trump shared a Tweet earlier that included an article from Dan Bongino where he shared a CNBC article from March 6th that was titled, ‘People are stealing masks and other medical equipment from hospitals, New York Gov. Cuomo says’.

The CNBC article begins, ‘As fear over the new coronavirus in New York spreads faster than the outbreak, people have started to steal masks and other medical equipment from local hospitals, Gov. Andrew Cuomo told reporters Friday.’

There was also a quote from a press conference the Governor held where he said, “Not just people taking a couple or three, I mean just actual thefts of those products.”
