BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Governor Andrew Cuomo stumped for Hillary Clinton Sunday morning.

The governor was joined by lawmakers at the Erie County Democratic Headquarters on Seneca Street in Buffalo.

Gov. Cuomo called Trump “un-New York” saying, “Everything this man stands for, is the exact opposite of what this state stands for.”

The governor spoke to supporters and highlighted Donald Trump’s conservative platform; calling the candidate “anti-immigrant.”

“This is a state made of immigrants,” said Gov. Cuomo. “Who’s not an immigrant? Unless you are a Native American, you are an immigrant. We are proud of it. We relish it. When Trump tries to divide us, we know he’s ejecting a poison into the social fabric that makes New York.”

Gov. Cuomo also accused the republican presidential nominee of being “anti-woman.”

“This is the home of women’s rights,” said Gov. Cuomo. “We are not going to allow anyone to treat women with disrespect. Not New York men, not New York boys, not New York women, not New York girls. We won’t stand for it. We demand respect for all and we’re going to let him know that on Election Day.”

The governor’s visit comes just two days before Election Day. He encouraged democratic voters to help get out the vote.

“We are gonna do it, we’re gonna do it the way we always win elections in Buffalo and Erie County,” said Gov. Cuomo. “We’re gonna get out there, we’re gonna be on the phones, we’re gonna drive people to the polls, we’re gonna knock on those doors, and knock on those doors.”
