ALBANY – New York’s Governor is now calling on President Trump to resign, following the violence that occurred at the U.S. Capitol this week.








Governor Andrew Cuomo urged other elected officials to do the same during a press briefing on Friday.

He says the violent rush of the Capitol Building occurred following years of divide at the hands of President Trump.









“I’ve seen a lot over the past four years with this administration,” said Cuomo. “This was the result of a leader who for four years actually appealed to the worst in people, appealed to fear and racism and discrimination”

Cuomo says if the President doesn’t resign, then he should be impeached.















“Impeachment also means the president doesn’t have the power to pardon, and some of the pardons this President has done are really reprehensible,” he furthered.

He praised officials and representatives who have already called on the President to resign and stated that others are “complicit.”

During his briefing where he focused on the violence in the U.S. Capitol, he also commented on the lack of security forces; asking what happened to the police and security forces during the event.

Cuomo concluded by asking why the chaos lasted for so long, in saying, “what signal does it send about the vulnerability of this nation?”

This, as some Democrats in Congress laid plans Friday for a swift impeachment of the President.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer are among lawmakers leading the call.

A draft of their Articles of Impeachment accuses Trump of abuse of power, saying he “willfully made statements that encouraged, and foreseeably resulted in, imminent lawless action at the Capitol.”

The articles are expected to be introduced on Monday, with a House vote as soon as Wednesday.

  1. Maybe Cuomo should resign,

    Remember when his brother Chris Cuomo made the statement on June 2, 2020 live on CNN

    “Now too many see the protests as the problem. No, the problem is what forced your fellow citizens to take to the streets: persistent, poisonous inequities and injustice,” Cuomo told his viewers on June 2. “And please, show me where it says protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful. Because I can show you that outraged citizens are what made the country what she is and led to any major milestone. To be honest, this is not a tranquil time.”

    He later added, “Police are the ones required to be peaceful, to deescalate, to remain calm.”

    What about all the protests that happened in the summer of 2020, Portland, Kenosha, Minneapolis, New York City, only to name a few, these “peaceful protests”, BURNED cities down, that will NEVER recover….

    Remember all the looting….

    There is a nice compilation of clips of all the mainstream media saying it was ok, just look

    The truth always comes out….
