President Donald Trump on Monday criticized both Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York Attorney General Letitia James in a series of tweets, charging the governor uses James “as a bludgeoning tool for his own purposes.”

The tweets come as Trump’s business activities have been investigated by James’s office, including his effort to purchase the Buffalo Bills football and the financing effort behind that.

“New York businesses in search of anything at all they can find to make me look as bad as possible,” Trump wrote. “So, on top of ridiculously high taxes, my children and companies are spending a fortune on lawyers. No wonder people and businesses are fleeing New York in record numbers!”

Cuomo in a phone conference call with reporters discussing his trip to Israel said he hadn’t seen Trump’s Twitter comments.

“He says the most absurd things. The state has ridiculously high taxes. The President’s strength is not fact or truth as we know,” Cumo said.

Cuomo added appeared unfamiliar with New York electing the governor and attorney general separately.

“I don’t have an Attorney General. He appoints an Attorney General and I think if anything the fact that law enforcement is looking into his corporations, if he has nothing to hide he has nothing to worry about. But I think the tweet shows that his paranoia is once again getting the better of him,” Cuomo said.

James in a tweet fired back as well, saying the investigation will go where the facts are.

“Make no mistake: No one is above the law, not even the President,” she posted. “P.S. My name is Letitia James. (You can call me Tish.)”
