On multiple counts, New York is in serious trouble.
The state has suffered major body blows from coronavirus. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo remains under fire for his decision to bring coronavirus patients into nursing homes, triggering even more deaths.
Despite shutdowns, mandatory face mask edicts, and other measures, New York continues to struggle. In fact, many of the state’s most affluent residents are fleeing due to mismanagement and poor policies. This has become so bad for New York that the governor has pleaded for wealthy now-former New Yorkers to return.
In the midst of the chaos happening, President Trump’s campaign is setting its sights on New York. As a matter of fact, Fox News confirms the president’s belief that he can win the state, despite its history of voting blue.
What to Know About the Struggles of New York
Aside from coronavirus, New York is taking major financial hits due to wealthy residents leaving the cities in droves. Thus far, Governor Cuomo’s appeals for affulent New Yorkers to return are falling on deaf ears.

Meanwhile, Bill de Blasio, New York City’s mayor, has agreed to decrease funding for the local police department. This decision has come at a time when crime is already increasing in the area; this, too, is a contributing factor in many residents getting out while they can.
President Trump has spoken up about the numerous plights that New York is facing. On Friday, Trump stated via Twitter that problems in New York have worsened considerably over the past four years.
How the Trump Campaign Can Win New York
President Trump has indicated that his policies can restore success and prosperity to New York.
This begins with lowering taxes, promoting school choice, and upholding law and order. As Trump and his administration work on across-the-board job growth for the entire nation, this can also positively impact the state of New York.
