President Donald Trump blasted New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo over the number of people who died from coronavirus in New York nursing homes.

In a Thursday morning tweet, Trump said Cuomo "has the worst record on death and China Virus."

He added that "11,000 people alone died in Nursing Homes because of his incompetence!"

Cuomo has been under scrutiny for an order he issued back in March that required nursing homes to accept coronavirus patients who were medically stable without testing them. The order was reversed, but thousands of people living in nursing homes died from the coronavirus.

The governor has claimed that the deaths were caused by infected staff members who spread the virus to residents. He has dismissed calls for an independent investigation into the number of nursing home deaths related to COVID-19 as political. 

Trump's Thursday attack on Cuomo comes just after the governor ripped the president's order to defund "lawless" cities including New York City on Wednesday night.

Trump renewed his Twitter attack on Cuomo an hour later, saying:

"@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!"
