Rush Transcript: Governor Cuomo Urges Unprecedented Federal Action to Stop the Spread of COVID-19

March 15, 2020

A rush transcript is available below:

I sent the President a letter. That is a very rare occasion for me. I said to the president in the letter, I offer these suggestions as a governor, as a former cabinet secretary member, as a person who knows how the state government works and how the federal government works, this is the state that has the highest number of cases. I said to the president in all sincerity, there's no place for politics, I'm not playing politics, I don't give a darn, Democrat, Republican, whatever you are. This is about Americans protecting Americans' lives, and I will work in full partnership with the president on this issue 100 percent. But I ask him personally to take this seriously. I know it's a dramatic action. It may be an unprecedented action. This is a dramatic time, and an unprecedented time, and great challenges require great leaders, and great solutions. And that's what this is. Thank you very much.
