Controversial New York state Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced via Twitter on Jan. 11 that he plans to reopen the economy before it is too late, “coincidentally” in the supposed last days of President Trump, who previously urged him to do so.
We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely.#SOTS2021

From the beginning of the pandemic, Cuomo enforced tight restrictions or lockdowns and banned businesses and restaurants from opening for long periods of time, even threatening to close them if they didn’t comply.
According to Breitbart, Cuomo said last July, “ Three violations and you’re closed,” threatening that the state government would expose those who did not comply. “We’re also going to post the names of the establishments facing disciplinary charges.”
Despite being one of the states with the toughest quarantine measures, it was also of the states that was hit hardest by the CCP Virus. New York recorded more than 30,000 deaths from the CCP Virus even during a total lockdown. Many have questioned whether these measures have really worked.
In addition, due to a bad decision by the governor, more than 10,000 of these deaths were registered in nursing homes when, by a Cuomo edict, elderly patients infected with the virus were sent to the nursing homes to recover, finally infecting and killing the others there.
Even with all this, Cuomo managed to publish a book that attempts to give lessons on “leadership during the pandemic” and on top of that he received the International Emmy Founders Award for killing the elderly in nursing homes.
When President Trump urged Democratic governors to open up the economy by May 2020, Cuomo refused to take any advice.
“We can’t have the cure be worse than the problem,” President Trump said. “We have to open our country because that causes problems that, in my opinion, could be far bigger problems.”
Analyzing the president’s words, it seems Cuomo copied the idea that delaying opening the economy could be worse than the disease.
However, the timing of the governor’s decision to open the economy is strange, right during the president’s supposed last days in the White House.
According to a Fox News report, by the end of November 2020, almost a third of New York state’s businesses went out of business due to lockdown measures.
The Democratic governor seems to have no problem destroying people’s businesses in exchange for maintaining his useless political pride.
Also, when President Trump announced the distribution of the Chinese Virus vaccine, Cuomo said he would not distribute it.
“We can’t let this vaccination plan go forward the way that Trump and his administration is designing it,” the Democrat said.
Cuomo did not hesitate to expose his political agenda, “The bad news is that it’s about two months before Joe Biden takes over, and this means [the Trump] administration is going to be implementing a vaccine plan.”
When President Trump told his supporters that there was election fraud and that he won the election by a landslide, the world of Democrats, progressives, and the radical left accuse him of being “subversive” or a “national security threat,” but when Cuomo destroyed businesses, sent the elderly to infect other elderly who eventually died from the disease, and when the vaccine was ready for people, he refused to distribute it, he gets a Emmy!?
