Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said it would behoove governors to get along with President Trump during a time of national crisis.
“Take the blame when you have to,” Giuliani said on Fox News. “You know, if you play with your boss, sometimes it’s better if you don’t win the golf game.”
“He’s the boss,” Giuliani said. “He’s got all the resources … it’s just human nature that if you act like a responsible guy and he’s got real confidence that you’re doing what you’re doing, he’s going to give you everything you want.”

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has also publicly pushed back on Trump’s assertion that he is overestimating the number of medical supplies New York needs.
