Governor Cuomo on Sunday took a number of steps that he says are in reaction to the divisiveness in the nation that has intensified since the presidential election. Cuomo, without mentioning President-elect Donald Trump by name, said the “ugly discourse” has made him “soul sick” for America. And he says there have been several instances in New York, including swastikas painted on a subway train and in a Buffalo suburb, along with a KKK flier placed on cars on Long Island.

Police on Long Island have launched an investigation after Ku Klux Klan fliers were found on cars in Patchogue early Thursday morning.

The fliers, found at 2 a.m. on parked cars off of a main road, had a picture of a white-robed Klan member and read, “Our race is our nation.” Suffolk Police Commissioner Timothy Sini says that while these fliers are protected under the First Amendment, his department will still investigate the incident.
