President Donald Trump is daring New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to challenge him in 2020, warning the Democrat that “anybody that runs against Trump suffers.”
In remarks Monday night at a fundraiser in upstate New York, Trump said that Cuomo once called him and promised that he wouldn’t run against him.
Cuomo’s office did not immediately dispute Trump’s claim.

The challenge came as Trump raised money for the re-election of Republican congresswoman Claudia Tenney.
Trump’s visit to Utica, New York, marked his first as president to an area he won in 2016.
