“I know the President-elect, I’ve spoken to him before,” Cuomo said Tuesday night. “I’ve known him in various capacities before.”
Cuomo, a Democrat, had a brief phone conversation with Trump that focused largely on infrastructure needs the day after the Republican businessman won the election in November.
The scheduled meeting for Wednesday, first reported by the New York Times and confirmed by the Daily News, will be the first face-to-face sit-down between the two since the election.
The conversation is expected to touch on the potential repeal of Obamacare, infrastructure and other issues important to New York.
“There are a number of issues that are highly impactful to New York,” Cuomo said. “He knows New York. I think it would be helpful to him to have a discussion about … the practical reality of what these issues mean.”
