President Donald Trump said New York Governor Andrew Cuomo would be a better choice for the Democratic nomination for president than the present front-runner Joe Biden.

Cuomo’s approval rating has risen as he’s leading New York’s fight against the spread of COVID-19 in the hardest-hit region in the U.S. There have been suggestions from writers and some Democrats that he would make a good presidential candidate to take on Trump in November.

“I wouldn’t mind running against Andrew,” Trump said in an interview with “Fox & Friends” Monday. “I know Andrew for a long time. I wouldn’t mind that, but I’ll be honest, I think he’d be a better candidate than Sleepy Joe,” Trump added, referring to the former vice president.

Trump, however, stopped short of praising Cuomo.

“Well, one of the reasons his numbers are high on handling it is because of the federal government, because we give him ships, and we give him ventilators, and we give him all of the things that we’re giving him,” Trump said. “And I think he’d admit this,” Trump added.
