New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) held a briefing in Albany on the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. He called on the federal government to provide the states help in establishing a large-scale testing system, citing the scarcity of resources and the complexities of the supply chain. During the briefing, President Trump responded to the governor, tweeting he should spend more time “doing” and less time “complaining” and that New York was not even using the extra bed capacity that was built by the federal government. Governor Cuomo forcefully defended his state’s response, criticizing the president for telling the governors to be in charge of testing, but then not providing resources. “Thank you for participating in a modicum of federal responsibility in a national crisis,” said Governor Cuomo. He added that the state’s response was based on the projections provided by the Centers for Disease Control and the White House Coronavirus Task Force. close
