Kathy Hochul says New York will 'never, ever support Trump' despite massive turnout in the Bronx—where she said black children don't know what a computer is

"New York will never, ever support Donald Trump for president ... this state will go solidly behind Joe Biden for president as it has in the past."

Speaking with CNN’s Jake Tapper on Thursday ahead of Trump’s South Bronx rally, New York Governor Kathy Hochul said that the state will "never, ever support" the former president, and that the rally "won’t make a difference at all." 

"Well, I’ll tell you it won't make a difference at all, Jake, and that is for Donald Trump to be the ringleader of and invite all his clowns to a place like the Bronx," Hochul said. 

"New York will never, ever support Donald Trump for president. We know him better than anyone. And that means we understand what he's all about, he’s just for himself. So, this state will go solidly behind Joe Biden for president as it has in the past."  

"So, he wants to spend his time doing these made-up fake rallies and pretending they're supporting him. Be my guest, because while you're doing that, Donald Trump, Joe Biden's out there on the other side, making sure he's delivering for all Americans. And so go ahead, spend all your time you want in New York because we'll be with Joe Biden and Joe Biden's out there winning over the rest of the battleground states," she concluded. 

Hochul earlier this month was criticized after claiming that there are black children in the Bronx that don’t know what computers are. 

"Right now we have, you know, young black kids growing up in the Bronx who don’t even know what the word ‘computer’ is," Hochul said while speaking in California at the Milken Institute Global Conference. 

Hochul later attempted to walk back the comments, stating, "I misspoke, and I regret it. Of course, Black children in the Bronx know what computers are — the problem is that they too often lack access to the technology needed to get on track to high-paying jobs in emerging industries like AI. That’s why I’ve been focused on increasing economic opportunity since Day One of my Administration." 

The Trump campaign estimates that around 25,000 people attended the Bronx rally. His stop in South Bronx marks the first time in around 40 years that a Republican presidential candidate held a campaign stop in the area, with the last instance being Ronald Reagan
