Cuomo Was Caught on Video Saying America Was Never Great — Now He’s Already Backpedaling

Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was caught on video taking a swipe at President Donald Trump’s famous campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again,” by saying America was never great.

“It was never that great,” Cuomo said.

“We will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged. We will reach greatness when discrimination and stereotyping against women — 51 percent of our population — is gone and every woman’s full potential is realized and unleashed, and every woman is making her full contribution,” he added.

The comment was met with swift condemnation and criticism.

Cuomo’s office has since released a statement clarifying what the governor really meant:

The statement is a contradiction to his earlier statement:

Marc Molinaro, the Republican challenger for Cuomo’s seat, blasted the governor’s original statement.

“America, with its imperfections, has always been great,” Molinaro said. “Our people, our principles, and our promises have been a beacon light to the world for 242 years and counting.

“Mr. Cuomo owes the nation an apology. He should be ashamed of himself,” he concluded.
