Cuomo Responds To Trump Saying No Vaccine For NY: ‘Luckily He Won’t Be Here’

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo clapped back after Donald Trump said the whole country would be receiving the COVID-19 vaccine in the spring, except for New York.

On Friday, Trump spoke from the White House to announce Operation Warp Speed is ready to distribute Pfizer’s vaccine as soon as it receives approval from the FDA. He is expecting that the distribution of the vaccine will begin in April. 

In his announcement, he said that the vaccine would be available to everyone outside of New York State because Cuomo doesn’t want it. Cuomo, who has been critical of Trump, has previously commented about not trusting a vaccine that is rushed for approval by the Trump administration. 

Cuomo responded to Trump’s remarks on CNN later that day, saying, “Luckily, he won’t be here.” He continued by stating that it’s not up to Trump to decide who gets the vaccine. Cuomo stressed that there would be no delay for New Yorkers.

“I don’t think the FDA is going to play games at this point. So I don’t anticipate any real issue,” the governor added. “New Yorkers are not going to get bullied. I stand up for New Yorkers and I’m not going to let a bully push New Yorkers around.”
