President Donald Trump is mocking New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's remarks that America "was never that great."

In a tweet Wednesday night, Trump repeats Cuomo's "it was never that great" comment made during a bill signing event earlier in the day. Trump then adds: "Can you believe this is the Governor of the Highest Taxed State in the U.S., Andrew Cuomo, having a total meltdown!"

Cuomo responded to Trump with a tweet of his own, saying, "What you say would be 'great again' would not be great at all...We will not go back to discrimination, segregation, sexism, isolationism, racism or the KKK."

He then pointed out that New York's state motto, "Excelsior," means, "Ever Upward (not backward)."

The Democratic governor made the much-criticized remarks while bashing Trump and his slogan "Make America Great Again."

Cuomo is seeking a third term this fall and is considered a potential White House contender in 2020.
