Statement from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo in Response to President Trump's Latest Twitter Rantings

"The President lost his right to call New York 'our' city, when he moved his residence to Florida.  The move was an obvious legal tactic to convince a judge not to grant the Manhattan District Attorney's motion to force production of Trump's tax returns as Trump could claim he was no longer a New York resident.  His trick failed when a judge ruled yesterday that his New York taxes must be released.  The President's tweet admits the truth when his stated reason for leaving New York was 'overzealous prosecutors.'  The President clearly believes the justice system can be politically manipulated - maybe his justice system can be, however the New York State justice system cannot be. 

 

"Trump's latest deflection for his legal vulnerability was to squeal about the New York bail reform law.  However he failed to mention it is essentially the same bail reform law New Jersey passed several years ago under Republican Governor Chris Christie, his Transition Director."
