When news was first shared of President Trump and First Lady Melania’s positive COVID-19 diagnosis, many politicians expressed their thoughts and prayers.
And our own NY State Governor Cuomo followed that up with a classic “get well” package.
Governor Cuomo announced he would be sending a care package full of iconic New York treats straight to the White House.
According to the state website, this included:
- Fresh apples from Upstate farms
- Bagels from New York City
- Cheesecake from Junior’s
- Chicken wings from Dinosaur BBQ
- Apple cider
“We can have political differences, and people know I have political differences with the President, and we’re both New Yorkers so we’re not shy about speaking our mind,” Governor Cuomo said.
This situation creates a lot of anxiety. I’ve gone through this in my family, and I’m sure his children and family are worried. So on behalf of the family of New York, I wish them a speedy recovery and they’re in our thoughts and prayers. And we’re going to be sending the President and First Lady a New York Cares package, just to give them some comfort as they go through this difficult period.
