President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump: I hope voters pay attention to Dem tactics amid Kavanaugh fight South Korea leader: North Korea agrees to take steps toward denuclearization Graham calls handling of Kavanaugh allegations 'a drive-by shooting' MORE on Friday claimed he has "already MADE America great again," amid ongoing criticism of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's (D) comment that America was “never that great."

“Wow! Big pushback on Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York for his really dumb statement about America’s lack of greatness,” Trump tweeted on Friday.

“I have already MADE America Great Again, just look at the markets, jobs, military- setting records, and we will do even better. Andrew 'choked' badly, mistake!” the president continued.

Trump then called Cuomo's statement "career threatening" and also took a jab at the governor's younger brother, CNN host Chris Cuomo. 

"When a politician admits that, 'We’re not going to make America great again,' there doesn’t seem to be much reason to ever vote for him. This could be a career threatening statement by Andrew Cuomo, with many wanting him to resign-he will get higher ratings than his brother Chris!" the president tweeted. 

Cuomo made the remark, which referenced Trump's campaign slogan, during a Wednesday speech regarding gender based discrimination in the U.S.

"We’re not gonna make America great again," Cuomo said at the event, where he signed anti sex-trafficking bills into law. "It was never that great."

His comments were quickly met with backlash and his office tried to later clarify his comments.

“The Governor believes America is great and that her full greatness will be fully realized when every man, woman, and child has full equality. America has not yet reached its maximum potential,” press secretary Dani Lever said.

"When the President speaks about making America great again — going back in time — he ignores the pain so many endured and that we suffered from slavery, discrimination, segregation, sexism and marginalized women's contributions.”
