    President Donald Trump demanded Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) drop all New York State lawsuits against him prior to a meeting between the two on Thursday to discuss the suspension of travel programs that would benefit immigrants, along with other New Yorkers.

    “He must understand that National Security far exceeds politics,” Trump said a week after the Department of Homeland Security announced it was suspending New York residents from participating in Trusted Traveler Programs such as Global Entry that make it easier to return to the U.S. from foreign trips. The move was in response to New York passing the “Green Light Law,” which allows undocumented immigrants to obtain drivers licenses and participate in the TTP.

    Trump implied that the suspension could be lifted with a quid-pro-quo:

    “New York must stop all of its unnecessary lawsuits & harassment, start cleaning itself up, and lower taxes,” he tweeted.

    He probably doesn't know or care. He just wants Governor Cuomo to overrule New York Attorney General Letitia James - who is a very smart lady.

    Maybe during a virus out break isn’t the best time for a state to get butt hurt over a few precautions. Of course if the Corona virus hits NY they will surely blame Trump for it.

    And yes, giving illegals licenses is fucking retarded.

    If that were true you’d know better. And no your mom making you clean your filthy ass basement and taking a shower isn’t living under a dictatorship. You’re free to move out.

    Why wouldn't he do that? It worked well for him when he did his Ukraine phone call, so why wouldn't it work again?

    Especially when both Trump and his supporters are saying that Trump can never be impeached again.
