New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D.) said Thursday he would not return contributions made to him by Donald Trump in spite of his opposition to his presidency.

Trump, a New York real estate titan and reality show host before running for the White House, donated $58,000 to Cuomo’s political efforts over the years, according to the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle—the New York Daily News reports Trump gave Cuomo $64,000. Trump has switched parties several times during his career; he was a Democrat from 2001 until 2009 and has been officially a Republican since 2012.

Pressured by gubernatorial primary opponent Cynthia Nixon to return the money, Cuomo refused.

The article goes on to state the following:

“No, not at all,” Cuomo said. “I will be deeply critical of him and keep the contributions.”

Nixon, who is challenging Cuomo from the left in a long-shot bid for the 2018 Democratic nomination, launched a digital ad campaign trying to shame Cuomo into giving back the Trump donations.

“Andrew Cuomo will take campaign donations from anyone—even Donald Trump,” one ad said. “Sign the petition: Tell Andrew Cuomo to return all Trump family donations.”
