It should be no surprise to anyone that Governor Andrew Cuomo came away with a bounced check after meeting with President Donald Trump to make his case for the proposed Gateway Tunnel project.
Governor Cuomo ran for another term against President Trump, not his real opponents. He spent millions on television advertising portraying Trump as an ultra-right wing conservative whose values will destroy New York, setting us back decades.
Only Cuomo can save us from this disaster.
After winning reelection, he goes to Washington hat in hand to meet with President Trump on behalf of the $29 billion Gateway Tunnel.
He wants Washington to pick up half the tab for the $13 billion first phase. This would pay for two new Hudson River tunnels and rehabilitation of two existing tunnels.
The governor came away empty handed with a photo op and no money. He forgot that you get more with honey than you do with vinegar.
Trump has a long memory as to how he has been treated in the past by those who wish to kiss his ring looking for a favor today.
