Governor Andrew Cuomo received no condemnation from the Biden administration on his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic that resulted in the deaths of at least 12,000 nursing home residents in New York.

Asked Friday about the Biden administration’s view of Cuomo and his team “withholding information” on their handling of the pandemic, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said they are not looking to “give anyone a stamp of approval,” as reported by the Post Millenial.

The reporter then asked Psaki, “Does the president have confidence in Gov. Cuomo’s handling of the pandemic and did they discuss this today?”

The Press Sec responded, saying “”Well, the president hosted Gov. Cuomo and a bipartisan group of governors and mayors to the White House today to get their perspective from the front lines.”

“Not to give anyone a stamp of approval, or to seek their stamp of approval, and, to discuss the urgency of passing the American rescue plan,” she concluded.

She furthered espoused Biden’s commitment to “partnering with governors and mayors.”

“The governor, Gov. Cuomo’s, of course, the governor of one of the largest states in the country, one of the places where the pandemic hit hardest the earliest, where there’s still many Americans who are continuing to struggle to get vaccinates, o make ends meet, and so it was important to have him as a part of the meaning,” Psaki answered.

Just two weeks ago, Gov. Cuomo referred to the nursing home scandal as a “political football” and blamed former President Trump for the deaths.

At least 12,000 people are found to have died in nursing homes because of Cuomo’s policies.

Trump: Tanks to Ukraine could escalate to use of ‘NUKES’

Former President Donald Trump stated bluntly on Truth Social,  “FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES. Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”

Trump was referring to the escalation of war in Ukraine. He, like many other commentators and lawmakers, are warning that the decision to continue sending weapons – and now tanks – could potentially lead to the use of “nuclear weapons.”

It’s mission creep and it’s dangerous, they say.

Why? Because Russian President Valdimir Putin has indicated in two different speeches that he would use nuclear weapons to defend Russia, if needed. Those warnings are not just bluster but a very real possibility.

And the escalation of war is visible.

Russia launched 55 missiles strikes across Ukraine Thursday, leaving 11 dead. The strikes come one day after the United States and Germany agreed to send tanks to Ukraine in an effort to aide the country. 47 of the 55 missiles were shot down according to Ukraine’s Air Force command.

Eleven lives were lost and another 11 were injured additionally leaving 35 buildings damaged in the wake of the attacks. According to The New York Times, Denys Shmyhal, said in a post on Telegram. “The main goal is energy facilities, providing Ukrainians with light and heat,” he said.

Ukraine is now demanding that they need F-16 fighter jets. In a post on twitter Ukrainian lawmaker, Oleksiy Goncharenko said, “Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.”

The US has abstained from sending advanced jets in the chances that a volatile decision could foster more dangerous attacks like former President Trump’s post on Truth referred to. If the US did authorize the decision to lend Ukraine the F-16 jets Netherlands’ foreign minister, Wopke Hoekstra, would be willing to supply them. According to The New York Times, Hoekstra told Dutch lawmakers, “We are open-minded… There are no taboos.”

F-16 fighter jets are complex to work on, they are not the average aircraft that can be learned in a matter of weeks. It can take months for pilots to learn how to fly these birds. European and US officials have the concern that Ukrainian forces could potentially use the jets to fly into Russian airspace and launch attacks on Russian soil.

Western allies are trying to avoid such a provocation, because that could lead to nuclear warfare in reference to what Putin has said he would do to defend his country.
