Governor Andrew Cuomo urges George Floyd protesters not to ‘make this a racial issue’

Governor Andrew Cuomo urges George Floyd protesters not to ‘make this a racial issue’

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo urged George Floyd protesters not to ‘make this a racial issue’ one day after Manhattan was torn apart by violence and looting.

Cuomo made the plea to New Yorkers after high-end storefronts were smashed on Madison Avenue Monday night and businesses were ransacked amid the protests over the death of Floyd, a black man killed by police in Minneapolis, Minnesota last week.

‘It’s convenient to say they’re all looters. They’re not all looters. They are Americans who are outraged at what happened to Mr Floyd. That’s who they are. There’s racial tension in this country,’ Cuomo said.

‘(There is a) suggestion, ‘Well the protests are about African Americans who are upset.’ Well, you know what, yeah African Americans are upset, but you know what, a lot of white people are upset. I’m white, and I’m upset.’

You look at those videos of the protests in Washington DC. Those are young, white faces, predominantly. This is not a racial issue in that only African Americans are upset. This is anyone who saw that video is upset…Don’t make this a racial issue. And don’t make it a political issue,’ Cuomo continued.

The governor’s comments came hours after he and his brother, CNN star Chris Cuomo, came under attack by President Donald Trump.

‘Yesterday was a bad day for the Cuomo Brothers. New York was lost to the looters, thugs, Radical Left and all other forms of Lowlife & Scum,’ Trump Tweeted.

‘The Governor refuses to accept my offer of a dominating National Guard. NYC was ripped to pieces. Likewise, Fredo’s (Chris Cuomo’s) ratings are down 50%.’

Cuomo said the National Guard is on standby in New York on Tuesday after Trump threatened to mobilize the military to quell the riots and ‘dominate’ the streets on Monday.

‘New York City, which the president has tweeted about, he’s saying, well I don’t know exactly what he’s saying in his tweets,’ Cuomo said when asked how his response differs from Trump’s support for military action.

‘The Mayor of New York City says he doesn’t need the National Guard and he doesn’t think they would be helpful. And he can do it with the NYPD…the NYPD and the mayor did not do their job last night, I believe that.’

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio has since moved the city’s curfew up to 8pm in response to the protests.
