New York Gov. Cuomo Has No Intention to Run for President in 2020


Over the past eight years, Cuomo embraced and implemented progressive policies such as raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour, cutting state taxes for the middle-class, among others.

Political observers see him as one of the several potential Democratic presidential contenders due to his achievements and national profile as a vocal critic of President Donald Trump.

Cuomo says Democratic Party has a viable presidential candidate

However, Cuomo emphasized that he has his “own expectation” of the type of candidate the Democratic Party should pick to win the White House in 2020.

He said, “I have my own expectation of the candidate of what the Democratic Party needs to win. I think you’ll see a viable candidate in the Democratic field. It’s not going to be enough to be anti-Trump. We need a candidate who brings credibility and experience to the job and can connect with the people who we lost as Democrats … the working men and women of this country who went with Trump because of the void left by the Democratic Party, and I think that’s going to materialize.”
