Since COVID-19 was first reported in the United States, President Trump hasn’t backed down. He has stood firm and asked the American people to do the same as we handle the situation in front of us. Yet Biden and the Democrats had another idea in mind – hide.
That’s right, while the rest of the world is trying to figure out how to work while fighting the virus, Biden hid in his basement, with many Democrats following suit. Now, in a strange change of heart, one of those Democrats is changing his mind.
On Monday, one of the most outspoken advocates for the lockdowns and outrageous mandates decided that the current Democratic way of fighting COVID-19 wasn’t working. New York’s very own Governor, Andrew Cuomo, has let the coronavirus turn his state into a wasteland in a matter of months. What was once considered the heart of America is now disserted as lockdowns push the state closer to collapse.
Hoping to save his state, Cuomo sent out a series of tweets saying, “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.”
Now, before you go searching through President Trump’s old tweets, the video below is going to show you that Cuomo is saying the same exact words the President said months ago. While the rest of the world went into lockdown, it was the Trump Administration that pushed to keep the economy open.
During the highly anticipated Presidential debates, President Trump was sure to tell Biden and the American people that you can’t run and hide from this virus. Fast forward to now and the Democrats are finally starting the see what the lockdowns have done to this country. America cannot thrive when it is shutdown.
Luckily, we weren’t the only ones to see the hypocrisy in Cuomo’s statement, especially since dozens of restaurants are suing him for not allowing them to open. Another New York Rep. Lee Zeldin blasted the Governor, saying “So let me get this straight..when Republicans have been saying this that means they are science deniers trying to kill people, but when @NYGovCuomo finally says this today then he is a genius who should write another book about his incredible leadership? Did I get that right?”
