“Forget bodyguards, he’d better have an army,” Democrat New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said Wednesday, commenting on the prospect of President Donald Trump visiting New York City.

Cuomo made the remarks during a conference call responding to an article by The New York Post, the newspaper reports:

“New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday all but threatened President Trump’s safety if he returns to New York City in a rant responding to an exclusive story by The Post that Trump is looking to pull federal funds from “lawless” cities including New York.

“Cuomo called an emergency press briefing within a half-hour on Wednesday night to tear into Trump for the order, which cites New York’s rising murder rate and defunding of the NYPD.”

Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom” aired a clip of audio from Gov. Cuomo’s conference call, in which the governor says Trump “better have an army” if he plans to return to New York:

“He can't come back to New York. He can't. He is going to walk down the street in New York? Forget bodyguards, he better have an army if he thinks he is going to walk down the street in New York.”

“He can’t have enough bodyguards to walk through New York City, people don’t want to have anything to do with him,” The Post quotes Gov. Cuomo adding.
