CNN anchor Chris Cuomo strongly suggested on Thursday evening that President Trump was responsible for the deaths of former GOP presidential candidate and business icon Herman Cain.
Cain’s death was announced after he was admitted to the hospital earlier this month due to complications from the coronavirus. Critics of the president, however, point to Cain’s attendance at the Tulsa, Okla rally on June 20 as the place the unconcerned businessman contracted the deadly disease.
During his opening monologue, Cuomo paused to hold Trump directly responsible for Cain’s death.

He just took a previous presidential candidate, Herman Cain,” Cuomo told his viewers. “Yes, he supported the president. The president says he was his good friend. We wish his family well and we want him to rest in peace and I wish this president does not have peace until he thinks about what he is doing. expose people. “
Cuomo continued, “He doesn’t even mention that Mr. Cain was at his rally among the masses without a mask right before he was diagnosed. Now, maybe he didn’t get there. Sure that hell didn’t help.”
Host “Cuomo Prime Time” has raised eyebrows over the past several months, from his hostile confrontation with a cyclist while breaking quarantine amid his recovery from the coronavirus to the series of softball interviews he conducted with his brother, Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
