Donald Trump Says He Hates New York 'Even More Than I Should' Because of Investigations

President Donald Trump has slammed New York, city and state, for repeatedly investigating him, saying officials do it to make him "hate them even more than I should." Trump also laid into New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, claiming the city and state are "falling apart" on his watch.

"So sad to see that New York City and State are falling apart," Trump wrote in a tweet on Saturday. "All they want to do is investigate to make me hate them even more than I should. Governor Cuomo has lost control, and lost his mind. Very bad for the homeless and all!"

In an earlier tweet, he slammed Cuomo and his Californian counterpart, Governor Gavin Newsom, for allegedly failing to tackle "homeless problems."

"California and New York must do something about their TREMENDOUS Homeless problems. They are setting records! If their Governors can't handle the situation, which they should be able to do very easily, they must call and 'politely' ask for help. Would be so easy with competence!" the president wrote.

Trump has repeatedly attacked Cuomo and other New York officials as the state continues to pursue his tax returns and financial records. In a tweet last month, he blasted Cuomo along with New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio, claiming they were causing his hometown's decline.

"So sad to see what is happening in New York where Governor Cuomo & Mayor DeBlasio are letting out 900 Criminals, some hardened & bad, onto the sidewalks of our rapidly declining, because of them, city," he wrote. "The Radical Left Dems are killing our cities. NYPD Commissioner is resigning!"

Donald Trump, his children Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, Eric Trump and the Trump Foundation charity, were ordered in November by a New York State judge to pay a $2 million fine over the misuse of charity assets for personal, business and politcal gain, among other violations.

Earlier this month, New York State Attorney General Letitia James announced that as well as the Trump Foundation being shut down, the president was forced to concede he had misused funds for political gain. She said the settlement money was distributed to eight charities.

James added that as part of the settlement, Trump's children Ivanka, Eric and Donald Jr. had undergone mandatory training.

James is also investigating whether Trump exaggerated his wealth in order to obtain loans. The Associated Press reported in September that she issued subpoenas to Deutsche Bank and Investors Bank in March seeking loan applications and other records related to Trump real estate projects and his failed bid to buy the Buffalo Bills. James has been contacted for comment.

Meanwhile, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance is seeking Trump's tax returns as part of a criminal investigation of the president, the Trump Organization and the Trump family's real estate business.

The New York Times reported in September that Vance subpoenaed Trump and the Trump Organization seeking state and federal tax returns for the last eight years. It came shortly after an investigation was launched into the president's role in payments made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, who claimed she had an affair with Trump. Vance has been contacted for comment.

Cuomo said Trump's decision to declare residency in Florida earlier this year was a ploy to avoid disclosing his finances to New York officials. "There is a legal proceeding against the president from the Manhattan district attorney's office where they're trying to get him to turn over the taxes," Cuomo told MSNBC last month.

"My guess is he was advised by his lawyer that would help his case to not to release his taxes to the Manhattan district attorney if he could say he was no longer a resident of the state of New York."

The White House and Cuomo have been contacted for comment.
