The New York Post reports:
President Trump demanded Gov. Andrew Cuomo tell state prosecutors, who he said are “illegally after me,” to investigate the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, as the two continue their feud after the president proposed cutting off federal funding to New York City.
Trump ordered the federal government to study the process of cutting off the “lawless” cities of New York, Portland, Seattle and Washington, DC, from federal funds that have allowed raucous protests and riots to continue and taken action to defund the police, the Post exclusively reported on Wednesday.
.@NYGovCuomo should get his puppet New York prosecutors, who have been illegally after me and my family for years, to investigate his incompetent handling of the China Virus, and all of the deaths caused by this incompetence. It is at minimum a Nursing Home Scandal – 11,000 DEAD!

While @realDonaldTrump spent this year hiding from COVID-19, New York City led the fight back.
Now we’re trying to recover and he’s making unconstitutional, political threats against us.
Mr. President, we’ll see you in court. We’ve beaten you there before and we’ll do it again.
