This is not time for politics, and it is no time to fight. I put my hand out in total partnership and cooperation with the president. If he wants a fight he's not going to get it from me. Period
When somebody's the president of the United States, the authority is total, and that's the way it's got to be.
Our Founding Fathers understood and we have to remember today that the balance today between the state and the federal, the magnificent balance that is articulated in the Constitution, is the essence of our democracy.
We don't have a king in this country, we didn't want a king. So we have a constitution and we elect a president.

After the 1996 election, Bill Clinton appointed Andrew Cuomo to serve as the secretary of HUD. He transformed HUD from inefficient bureaucracy to an effective driver of housing opportunities and economic development.
In 2006, he was elected New York State Attorney General. His agenda was to fight for social, racial, and economic justice. He worked to fight discrimination in rental apartments, took on the big banks that were squandering billions of dollars in bail-out money, and challenged corporate abuse of the middle class.
On May 22, 2010, Cuomo announced his run for the position of the governor of New York in a video posted to his campaign website. Four days later, he announced his choice for lieutenant governor, the Mayor of Rochester, Robert Duffy. His popularity was so high that he won the election easily receiving 62.6% of the vote.
On November 4, 2014, he was re-elected for a second term, this time with 54% of the total vote. Astorino received 40.6% of the vote.
In November 2018, he was re-elected for the third time with the largest number of votes of any governor in both the primary and the general elections.

Under his leadership, the state passed marriage equality, a minimum wage of $15, the strongest paid family leave program in America, equal rights for women, the strongest gun safety laws in the nation, and greater protections for immigrants.
In addition to this, the state had the largest investment in education in its history during his tenure and he also cut taxes for the middle class, implemented a 2 percent property tax cap, and the employment rate also became higher than ever. New York became the first state in the US to offer free college tuition for middle-class families.
In 2014, he released his autobiography, ‘All Things Possible: Setbacks and Success in Politics and Life’.
On his first day in office, he renewed an executive order which prohibited Governors of the state from receiving donations from gubernatorial appointees. However, according to an investigation by the NY Times in February 2018, the governor’s administration had reinterpreted the order. He had collected around $890k from 24 of his appointees. Moreover, they also collected around $1.3 million from the partners, children, and businesses of appointees.
In March 2018, The NY Times also reported that he had rewritten the disclaimer language on his campaign website. It added two caveats whereby some gubernatorial appointees are allowed to donate to the governor. The campaign returned $2.5k from one appointee who was in violation of the new disclaimer but it still retains around $890k raised from other appointees.
This was a controversial subject in 2018.
