(Reuters) – On Thursday, Governor Andrew Cuomo said President Donald Trump was not going to send federal law enforcement to New York because he is struggling with growing violence.
He said he wouldn’t carry troops to the city of New York. He didn’t utter, necessarily, until the point, but he said that we’d think about it before he did it.
Earlier this week Trump vowed to deploy federal agents into many cities in the U.S. and the president announced Tuesday that he would bring the central police to Chicago to reinforce the city’s drug investigation.
Cuomo said the government would appeal if the president ordered federal departments to New York City. “I think it’s illegal openly,” he said.
