Andrew Cuomo Blames Donald Trump for Pandemic Response

TEHRAN ( Iran News ) – In a new book, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo blames US President Donald Trump for thousands of deaths in New York in the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic, decrying “federal negligence” he says led to “the greatest failure to detect an enemy attack since Pearl Harbor”. The governor also describes his repeated recourse to TV interviews in order to make the TV-obsessed president listen to his desperate appeals for help. “I’m not running against you,” Cuomo says he told Trump in a call on 17 March, amid rumors his national profile, raised by the pandemic, might prompt a late run for the White House
