At Wednesday's presser, reporters asked Governor Cuomo about the role he played in the deaths of nursing home residents from covid-19.
Cuomo told reporters "Anyone who wants to ask, ‘Why did the state do that with COVID patients in nursing homes,’ it’s because the state followed President Trump’s CDC guidance”.
Reporters also asked if he was concerned about a federal probe into his decision to have covid-19 positive patients return to nursing homes. Cuomo replied "I’m not resistant, If the federal government wants to start a probe, then they can start a probe. It is irrelevant to me. … President Trump does what he wants to do. He doesn’t listen to a governor.”
