Cuomo: "In Many Ways, COVID Is Just A Metaphor" For How Trump Has Weakened America

|

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo spoke Monday at the Democratic National Convention about how states and cities across the nation rose to the occasion of the coronavirus pandemic despite President Donald Trump.

Cuomo said former VP Joe Biden will be able to "restore the soul of America" in the wake of the Trump presidency, saying the nation needs "a leader as good as our people."

"Our nation is in crisis, and in many ways, COVID is just a metaphor," Cuomo said. "A virus attacks when the body is weak and when it cannot defend itself. Over these past few years, America’s body politic has been weakened."


"Only a strong body can fight off the virus, and America’s divisions weakened it," Cuomo said. "Donald Trump didn’t create the initial division. The division created Trump; he only made it worse."

"Joe Biden can restore the soul of America," he said. "And that’s exactly what our country needs today."

"For all the pain and all the tears, our way worked. And it was beautiful. We showed that our better angels are strong and that Americans would rise to their call. We saw that even at the end of the day, even if it is a long day, that love wins," Cuomo said.
