    ....seems they are on Trump's mind (...seem to recall the Trump administration recently suspended the Global Entry program for residents of New York)

    “I’m seeing Gov. Cuomo today at The White House. He must understand that National Security far exceeds politics,” Trump tweeted. “New York must stop all of its unnecessary lawsuits & harrassment, start cleaning itself up, and lowering taxes.”

    ....apparently, Trump was watching CNN when he responded with the above tweet:

    On CNN, Cuomo told Alisyn Camerota that he wants “to make sure the president knows that his Department of Homeland Security is extorting other governments. . . . They said they’re going to punish governments that don’t get in line with their dictate.”

    I can’t help laughing at this. Donald isn’t just like a living and breathing satire of corruption in politics, he’s a walking, talking, tweeting farce.

    I live in New York and NOBODY agrees with the Green Light law. Even Dems have been critical. This is strictly Cuomo VS Trump.

    Which part of “New York must stop all of its unnecessary lawsuits & harrassment, start cleaning itself up, and lowering taxes.” is strictly Trump vs Cuomo exactly? If Obama had tweeted that about Texas, I assume you’d have been just fine and dandy about that?

    It's pointless to attack me. I have no opinion on the matter. I posted how the majority of people in New York I talk to tell me how they feel about it.

    It allows people in New York to apply for a driver's licence regardless of immigration status.

    Who was the first Jeff Davis?

    I'm from New York and you certainly don't speak for everyone here.

    Driver licenses and the Green Light Law

    Also: New York State To Sue Trump Administration Over Trusted Traveler Restrictions

    Of course, a lot of New York residents have passports but no drivers licenses because of good public transportation.

    Cuomo said this week that he had offered DHS a compromise: access to New York Department of Motor Vehicles data that concerns program* applicants only.

    *Trusted Traveler programs

    Seems like a reasonable compromise....

    Jefferson Davis was the first and only President of the Confederate States of America.

    Again, these are the people I speak to. I have no interest or opinion on this issue. No point in being hostile.

    That's not what you said before which was that NOBODY in New York agreed with the Green Light Law. I can only go by the actual words you post, so perhaps you should be more specific in your wording to convey your meaning.

    True, you should not be hostile.

    Is that who he is comparing Cuomo to? I don't see it.

    How is it attacking you to ask you to logically justify something you said?
