NEW YORK – New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who has gained national follow through his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, is writing a book that looks back on his experiences, and includes leadership advice and a deep examination of his relationship with President Donald Trump’s administration. Crown announced on Tuesday that Cuomo’s ‘American crisis’ would be released on October 13, three weeks before Election Day, when Trump is due to face alleged Democratic candidate Joe Biden .The news comes the day after Cuomo addressed the Democratic National Convention and called the virus “spreading a metaphor for a country weakened by division.” New York state has one of the lowest infection rates in the United States, a welcome contrast to spring, where it had one of the highest.

“In his own voice, Andrew Cuomo recounts in ‘American Crisis’ the ingenuity and sacrifice required of so many to fight the pandemic,” according to Crown, “sharing his personal thoughts and the decision-making that shaped his policy , and offers its candid accounting and assessment of its interactions with the federal government and the White House, as well as with other local and state political and health officials. ”

Cuomo had said last month that he was thinking of a book, commenting in a radio interview on WAMC that he wanted to document “the whole experience, because if we don’t learn from it it will really make matters worse.” the whole crisis. I crossed. In an excerpt from “American Crisis” that Crown shared with The Associated Press, Cuomo stressed the importance of facing fear.

“The questions are: what do you do with the fear and would you succumb to it,” he wrote. “I wouldn’t let fear control me.

The fear kept my adrenaline high and that was a plus. But I wouldn’t let the fear be negative and I wouldn’t spread it.

Fear is also a virus. “The financial terms of ‘American Crisis’ have not been disclosed.

Cuomo was represented by Washington attorney Robert Barnett, whose other clients include former President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush. Cuomo is also the author of “All Things Possible: Setbacks and Success in Politics and Life,” published in 2014.

Cuomo, who is currently serving his third term, has been praised for his straightforward and straightforward press conferences, and has even been mentioned for a time as a possible presidential candidate. His style differs in particular from the more erratic approach of President Trump, a Republican with whom he has often clashed. Cuomo said Trump was “in denial” of the severity of the pandemic and criticized him for ignoring scientific advice.

Trump blamed Cuomo’s “mismanagement” for the tens of thousands of deaths from COVID-19 in New York City. Cuomo has received some of his strongest criticism for the thousands of virus-related deaths in New York City nursing homes.

A recent investigation by the AP found that the number of patient deaths in nursing homes, already among the highest in the country, could be much higher than what has been reported.

Unlike all other states with major epidemics, only New York explicitly says that it only counts residents who have died on nursing home property and not those who were taken to hospitals and died there.

So far, the Cuomo administration has refused to release the issue. The governor called the criticism of the deaths in nursing homes politically motivated.
