Governor Andrew Cuomo says President Trump's use of an expletive to describe some poor nations across the world was ugly, disgusting and repulsive.
After a public event Friday morning on Long Island, Cuomo said the vulgarity the Republican president used Thursday during a private meeting with lawmakers on immigration shows Trump "doesn't really understand what this country is all about."
"Immigration made America," Cuomo said. "We put up a sign. We invited the poor. And they came."
Cuomo said generations and generations of hard-working immigrants like his grandparents are the story of America.
