Each time the governor had the same answer: "No."

"With all of this adulation you're getting for doing your job, are you thinking about running for president?" Cuomo asked his brother.

"No, no," the governor responded curtly.

"No, you won't answer?" the CNN host shot back.

Chris Cuomo then launched a barrage of questions at the governor, including whether Andrew Cuomo might consider a run in the future or whether he was even open to discussions, to all of which the elder Cuomo responded, "No."

Cuomo has frequently denied presidential aspirations in recent days, telling MSNBC earlier Monday that he did not want to engage Trump in political games.

"I am not engaging the president in politics," said Cuomo. "My only goal is to engage the president in partnership. This is no time for politics. I am not going to get into a political dispute with the president."

"I'm not running for president," he added.
