Trump Fillets Fake News 'Fredo' In Cuomo Tweet


“I’m seeing Governor Cuomo today at The White House,” the president tweeted Thursday. “He must understand that National Security far exceeds politics. New York must stop all of its unnecessary lawsuits & harrassment, start cleaning itself up, and lowering taxes. Build relationships, but don’t bring Fredo!”

The tweet takes a jab at New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s brother, CNN’s Chris Cuomo, who was caught on video threatening a Trump supporter who called him Fredo last year.

In the video, Cuomo claimed the slur is akin to the “n-word” for Italians. The CNN host attempted to couple his trash talking with physical intimidation.

“Fredo was from The Godfather. He was a weak brother. And they use it as an Italian aspersion,” Cuomo said. “Are any of you Italian? Are you Italian? It's a f---ing insult to your people. “

“I’ll f***ing ruin your s**t,” Cuomo said. “I’ll f***in’ throw your down these stairs like a f***in’ punk.”

President Trump has called Cumo “Fredo” before. Making the reference during a press conference at a UN Summit in September.
