Andrew Cuomo Demands White House Meeting on Tax Reform, Trump Turns It Into Lecture on Abortion

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo requested a meeting with President Trump over tax reform that he claims is hurting his state’s revenue, but it quickly turned into a lecture on fracking and late-term abortion.

The meeting, which Law 360 described as “Cuomo return(ing) empty-handed,” did not go as planned by the extremist Democrat. The sole intent of the meeting was to discuss a$10,000 cap on federal deduction for state and local taxes (SALT). Cuomo is citing the provision for a drop in over $2 billion in tax revenue.

“I told the president myself today: SALT repeal is hurting us. And if you hurt New York, you’re harming the economic engine of the nation,” he bragged after the meeting.

White House notes suggest a different story. While the President and Cuomo did discuss the matter, Trump turned the tables and reminded the Governor that exorbitantly high taxes in his state might actually be the problem.
