New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said America “was never that great” at an event on Wednesday in what was meant to be a swipe at President Trump’s “Make America great again” slogan.

The declaration was met with an uproar in the room.

The article goes on to state the following:

“We have not reached greatness,” he continued at an event in which he signed anti sex-trafficking bills into law. “We will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged. We will reach greatness when discrimination and stereotyping against women, 51 percent of our population, is gone, and every woman’s full potential is realized and unleashed and every woman is making her full contribution. When that happens, this nation is going to be taken even higher.”

Cuomo’s Republican opponent, Marc Molinaro, issued a statement condemning Cuomo’s remark. Molinaro’s statement read:

“America, with its imperfections, has always been great. Our people, our principles, and our promises have been a beacon light to the world for 242 years and counting. This governor is so determined to distract voters from his failed policies and corrupted administration that he’s willing to dismiss the steady, determined march of the American people, making and remaking the greatness of America. Mr. Cuomo owes the nation an apology. He should be ashamed of himself.”

New York Times correspondent Shane Goldmacher noted that Cuomo’s office released a statement “cleaning up” Cuomo’s remarks:

“Governor Cuomo disagrees with the President. The Governor believes America is great and that her full greatness will be fully realized when every man, woman, and child has full equality. America has not yet reached its maximum potential.”

The New York Times noted in their report of the incident:

The governor’s dislike of “retrospective” slogans is relatively new.

When he ran for governor in 2010, Mr. Cuomo said in his announcement video, “Together, we can make New York great again.”
