Gov. Andrew Cuomo railed on President Donald Trump during a press conference in New York Monday, saying the president should “start telling the people of this country the truth” and sign an executive order requiring masks to be worn in public nationwide.

Republicans, meanwhile, called on Democrats in the state Legislature to strip Cuomo of emergency law-making powers, saying the time has come to limit that authority.
