President Trump continues to have a blunt message for Upstate New Yorkers worried about the region’s economy: Get out, the Buffalo News and New York Times are reporting.

Meeting with reporters from regional news outlets from around the country Wednesday, Trump offered detailed comments in response to questions about his August 2017 statement that Upstate residents should consider leaving.

“If New York isn’t gonna treat them better, I would recommend they go to another state where they can get a great job,” Trump said Wednesday.
