Trump Just Openly Threatened NY, Says He Will Gut Gov Services If They Don’t Stop Investigating Him

Donald Trump appears to have openly admitted to another quid pro quo, this time with the state of New York.

Trump took to Twitter on Thursday where he talked about a meeting he had with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Trump said that he talked to Cuomo about dropping lawsuits against him if the state wants to regain the Global Entry process at the border.

“I’m seeing Governor Cuomo today at The White House,” Trump tweeted. “He must understand that National Security far exceeds politics. New York must stop all of its unnecessary lawsuits & harrassment, start cleaning itself up, and lowering taxes. Build relationships, but don’t bring Fredo!”

Many people noticed Trump’s open threat, even former ethics czar Walter Shaub called out the tweet as another example of the president abusing the power of his office.

“Holy cow! He appears to be engaging in another quid pro quo right before our eyes,” tweeted Shaub, the former director of the Office of Government Ethics. “I don’t know what to say but HOLY COW! NY must drop its lawsuits against him if New Yorkers want Global Entry status? HOLY COW!!! HOLY COW!!!”
