King vs. Empire State - Sputnik International
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has nicknamed US President Donald Trump “King Trump” after the POTUS told reporters at Monday's White House Coronavirus Task Force briefing that he had “total” authority over forcing US governors to reopen their respective states.

Despite repeatedly acknowledging that determining the exact date to reopen the country following the end of the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic is extremely difficult for him, Trump gave a daring proclamation when asked about US governors having the authority to reopen their respective states on their own accord. 

"When somebody’s the president of the United States, the authority is total," he said during the briefing. "And that's the way it's gotta be. It's total. And the governors know that."

In response Tuesday, Cuomo stated on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that “he basically declared himself King Trump,” going on to say that “all that annoying federal-state back-and-forth that our Founding Fathers went through, he just disregarded that,” CNBC reported

Trump promptly responded to Cuomo’s comments on Twitter, accusing the governor of the Empire State of “begging” the federal government for critical health care equipment, “most of which should have been the state’s responsibility.” 

Who knew the federal government could get so feudal!
