“To have the White House on your side with a New Yorker as president is going to be a tremendous help for us,” state GOP chairman Ed Cox said Wednesday morning.

Overhauling Energy and Immigration Policies
Trump has talked about overhauling the nation’s energy and immigration policies, and supporting Second Amendment rights.
Hydraulic Fracturing, Stronger Gun Laws and Limit Rights of Immigrants
In New York, state leaders have taken starkly different stances: Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo banned hydraulic fracturing for natural gas, signed stronger gun-rights laws and sought to expand rights for immigrants.

Democrats have also pushed to strengthen abortion rights in New York, and pro-choice groups feared a Trump presidency will lead to the appointment of pro-life judges.
“Trump’s belief that women who have abortions should face punishment and his promise to appoint anti-choice Supreme Court justices, coupled with Mike Pence’s extreme track record of legislative attacks against women’s health and rights, imperil the health and lives of women in every state,” said Andrea Miller, president of the Pro-Choice New York PAC, in a statement.
All these issues of course will trickle down to Harlemites directly and/or in-directly.
