President Trump on Tuesday criticized Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio’s handling of reopening businesses in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, accusing them of “destroying” New York City.

“New York City must stop the Shutdown now,” the president tweeted. “The Governor & Mayor are destroying the place!”

Cuomo and de Blasio have drawn fierce backlash for continuing to ban indoor dining, despite New York recording record-low COVID-19 infection rates.

Several politicians plan on filing a lawsuit Tuesday morning over the dining debacle.

In a follow-up tweet, Trump suggested that the shutdown in New York City was by design.

“The Democrats will open up their states on November 4th, the day after the Election,” he wrote. “These shutdowns are ridiculous, and only being done to hurt the economy prior to the most important election, perhaps, in our history! #MAGA.”

De Blasio spokesman Bill Neidhardt responded to a request for comment from the Post about Trump’s initial tweet, writing, “Donald Trump wants to see a COVID comeback in New York City.”

Neidhardt also added, “Donald Trump has absolutely no legitimacy when he talks about the coronavirus. Even his supporters acknowledge his response to COVID has been a failure, and we would be insane to follow his advice.”

A spokesman for Cuomo’s office didn’t immediately return an email requesting comment.
