Trump, Cuomo to meet at White House on Tuesday

In Monday’s briefing, Trump highlighted remarks Cuomo made during one of his daily briefings in Albany in which Cuomo agreed with Trump’s assessment that states should be in charge of their coronavirus testing systems.

Asked why Cuomo was traveling to Washington for an in-person meeting given concerns about travel, Trump said it was the governor’s idea.

“I don’t know. He wanted to. We — believe it or not — we get along, OK?” he said, adding that Cuomo was “very generous yesterday in particular.”
