Michigan governor fires back at Trump, says states won’t ‘open via Twitter’

Legal experts say the president does not have the authority to overrule governors by reversing public health restrictions that have been ordered at the state level.

…When discussing Trump’s comments during an appearance on the “Today” show, Cuomo said the “president doesn’t have total authority,” while pointing to the 10th Amendment, which states that “powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

“The Constitution is there, the 10th Amendment is there, number of cases over the years, it’s very clear. States have power by the 10th Amendment, and the president is just wrong on that point,” Cuomo said.
