Trump trolls Cuomo with 'Fredo' tweet ahead of White House meeting

Trump trolls Cuomo with 'Fredo' tweet ahead of White House meeting”

A White House official confirmed the planned meeting to Fox News.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo's comments in a Wednesday radio interview come a day after NY officials filed a lawsuit challenging the Department of Homeland Security's move to block NY residents from "trusted traveler" programs.

"The corresponding lack of security cooperation from the New York DMV requires DHS to take immediate action to ensure DHS's efforts to protect the Homeland are not compromised", Wolf announced.

DHS Secretary Chad Wolf announced the ban last week, stating it was due to NY not allowing federal officials to access state Department of Motor Vehicle records to conduct background checks on applicants.

But Cuccinelli said it was a necessary step because New York's new law had endangered public safety by making it tougher for immigration and border agents to quickly confirm someone's identification, check for fugitive warrants or see if a person has a criminal record. The restriction is part of New York's recently passed "Green Light Law", which allows illegal immigrants to obtain driver's licenses.

"If it turns out to be "just politics" I believe that's an abuse of government power. You can have it", Cuomo said he told top DHS officials in response to the announcement.

The governor and the president are expected to sit down together at the White House at 3 pm to discuss the Trump administration's ban on New Yorkers from taking party in the Trusted Traveler Program - that speeds up the process for citizens returning to the USA from overseas.

Cuomo is set to meet with Trump on Thursday, where he will offer to grant federal authorities access on a case-by-case basis specifically for people who apply for the Trusted Traveler Program. "And I think that's what they really want". He said that New York City residents understand the importance of ensuring people have proper identification when they enter the country in light of the September 11, 2001, attacks on the city.
