President Donald Trump is daring New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to challenge him in 2020, warning the Democrat that “anybody that runs against Trump suffers.”
In remarks Monday night at a fundraiser in upstate New York, Trump said that Cuomo once called him and promised that he wouldn’t run against him. Cuomo’s office did not immediately dispute Trump’s claim.
A New York native, Trump spent much of the event attacking his home-state governor as well as Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who is also thought to have White House ambitions.
