ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo is condemning the federal government’s COVID-19 response and lauding his own leadership efforts in a new book about New York’s battle against the pandemic. The Democrat’s book, “American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic,” was released Tuesday. In it, Cuomo expresses regret at not ordering New Yorkers to wear masks earlier in the outbreak. Cuomo also addresses a frequent criticism of his leadership style: That he is overly controlling. He writes “show me a person who is not controlling, and I’ll show you a person who is probably not highly successful.”
When things were at their worst, NYers were at their best.
Understanding the facts we have learned are critical as we as a nation & as individuals continue to battle COVID.
My book, American Crisis, comes out today. Thanks for reading.https://t.co/6fpePDFyQV

Wow: NBC's @WillieGeist grills @NYGovCuomo on his mishandling of coronavirus response: "writing a book in the middle of it, celebrating the things you did right feels off and strange" pic.twitter.com/fSmpkyAxam
