New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo: America was never that great

Andrew Cuomo shocks crowd, says America ‘was never that great’


”The Democratic star made the seemingly offhand remark as part of his rebuke of President Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan during a bill-signing in New York. But the line drew gasps from the crowd.”

“We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great,” Cuomo said, to an awkward blend of gasps and chuckles.

Cuomo, a communist/socialist, who has turned many parts of New York into a slum, has the audacity to make such a remark?

I remember Michelle Obama telling us that she had never been proud of her country until her husband was nominated for the presidency.

So, who is lying?


The liberty to succeed or fail at one’s own hand is a socialist’s nightmare and not the American Dream

What were the rest of his comments? Can you provide context here for us? Instead of just the one line that alone sounds really bad. Thanks!

Here is the exact quote:

“We are not going to make America great, America. It was never that great,” Mr. Cuomo said. “We have not reached greatness. We will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged.”

Aside from the fact that he has not turned parts of NYC into a slum, that’s unprovable nonsense, the gov hasn’t said anything different from what the President said. So…

Also this comment drew groans from those listening. Awkward moment for the government

I saw this article earlier. What struck me was that first, we had Trump with his MAGA slogan, implying America was no longer great. Then, we have this guy saying America was never great. It’s odd that this seems to be a way to gain ground politically in the US these days. Do we, as a nation, want politicians that don’t seem to think very highly of the US? I know I don’t.


Democrats have alwaysbeen attacked for being critical of America or American history. What Cuomo said isn’t original.

What is original though is now you have republicans or conservatives, however you want to call them, actually saying hmm may be America isn’t that great. This is after decades of telling libs and Dems to love it or leave it.

That’s what always struck me as funny, the whole MAGA meme… The very slogan implies we are not “great” and our “greatness” needs to be restored…

But we are not. I don’t take issue with the slogan honestly, i take issue with what the President thinks is bad about it.

My severely biased view is that SOME of his supporters think there are not enough jobs and too many brown people.

The homeless have dramatically increased under Cuomo. Socialism does this wherever it is practiced!


If we can make 51 percent of America’s population dependent upon the federal government for its subsistence, we can then bribe them for their vote, keep ourselves in power and keep the remaining portion of America’s productive population enslaved to pay the bills ____ Our Socialist Fifth Column open border leaders’ long term strategy

That is true, which doesn’t make your original comment any less false.
Of course you’ll never be able to show which of the governor’s policies increased homelessness in NYC but hey it’s nice to have opinions

Isn’t the homeless problem in NY directly related to housing prices and those rapid rises in housing prices are a result of demand? Are you suggesting a government solution here?

If you were fine with enslaving human beings and love the Jim Crow era then America was always great for you. It’s really sad that that’s what it takes but its a sad truth.

Part of the homeless problem is directly related to illegal immigration. Another contributing factor is the crushing regulations imposed upon the building industry.


Without a Fifth Column Media, Yellow Journalism, Hollywood, and a corrupted FBI, Loretta Lynch, Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama, would be making license tags in a federal penitentiary

So rich illegal’s are driving up housing prices in NY? Thing you learn here… :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Rich illegals? The vast majority of illegal entrants crossing our borders are poverty stricken, poorly educated, low and unskilled, and consume free government cheese which is financed by taxing American Citizens.


American citizens are sick and tired of being made into tax-slaves to finance the economic needs of millions of poverty stricken, poorly educated, low and unskilled aliens who have invaded America’s borders.

Sounds a lot like a silver-spoon, privileged and bored wealthy white man who hates his country.

I guess we should all be glad he’s just running for governor of New York instead of training for jihad in a Sudanese camp.

On a side note, he’s probably more patriotic than most of the people in his party, and his socialist opponent, cynthia nixon.
