Cuomo’s ‘Open Letter’ to Trump After Texas School Shooting Slammed on Twitter: ‘YOU Do Something!’

Cuomo’s ‘Open Letter’ to Trump After Texas School Shooting Slammed on Twitter: ‘YOU Do Something!’

Cuomo got slammed on Twitter for his letter to President Trump demanding he “do something”…

Hours after a student opened fire in a Texas high school classroom, killing at least 10 people, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo took to Twitter demanding President Trump “DO SOMETHING.” After listing seven mass shootings in a tweet that Cuomo directed at the president, Cuomo, a Democrat, then drafted a letter.

The May 18 “open letter” calls on President Trump, the House of Representatives and the Senate to take action.

“When is enough enough?” Cuomo asks. “How many more innocent people have to die before you act?”

Cuomo, who boasted about his “F” rating from the National Rifle Association (NRA), told the politicians to put their country first, Fox News reports.

“You were elected to lead – do something. Your first responsibility is to the people of this country, not the NRA – do something,” Cuomo repeated. “My heart breaks for the families who have to grieve from this needless violence – DO SOMETHING.”

The letter, signed by Cuomo — who dubbed himself the “father of Cara, Mariah and Michaela, taxpayer, Governor of New York, NRA ‘F’ Rated Elected Official” — garnered more than 665 retweets by Friday evening and received dozens of fiery replies.

Twitter users lectured Cuomo for allegedly not offering any solutions himself, while others told him he should instead focus on New York’s issues.

Did you send this letter to Obama too during his tenure when mass shootings occurred?

Never heard from him during Obama years did we. Typical lib quack. He needs to go back under the Rock he crawled out from under.

Mr. Cuomo what positive actions have you taken to address this issue. Please enlighten all of us. Leaders lead through actions. Cowards cast blame.

What Exactly did All of the other Former Presidents do??? NY Governor is using another school shooting as a politicize tool again. Not cool Cuomo.

Trump spoke with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Friday afternoon to “offer his condolences for those affected by the shooting at Santa Fe High School,” an official told Fox News. He later addressed the nation, asking government officials to work together to prevent similar tragedies.

“My administration is determined to do everything in our power to protect our students, secure our schools and to keep weapons out of the hands of those who pose a threat to themselves and to others,” Trump said. “Everyone must work together at every level of government to keep our children safe.”

Trump announced in late March that the administration would ban bump stocks and “all devices” that turn otherwise legal weapons into “illegal machine guns,” keeping a promise made amid a bipartisan gun control debate just weeks after 17 students were gunned down at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, Fox News reported.
