Come on in, Bloomberg. The water's fine. Please, please, please run.

Michael Bloomberg Considers Run for President Against Trump

Former New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg is once again considering a run for president in 2020, with an adviser saying he is concerned that the current crop of Democratic contenders will not be able to defeat President Donald Trump.Bloomberg, 77, had considered a run earlier this year but decided not to run and instead support Democratic efforts to regain control in Washington. Now he is open once again to running against Trump himself.


Bloomberg is the founder and majority owner of Bloomberg LP, the parent company of Bloomberg News.

“We now need to finish the job and ensure that Trump is defeated – but Mike is increasingly concerned that the current field of candidates is not well positioned to do that,” said Bloomberg adviser Howard Wolfson in a statement. Wolfson said Bloomberg would run on his record of serving as mayor of the nation’s largest city, building his own company and contributing to global causes through his philanthropic activities.

The DNC 2020 POTUS field is suffering from a lack of old white folks. ;)

His platforms: Gun seizures and soda taxes.

Trump will rip his ass to shreds.

The clown show continues. It is a sign of the weakness of the field that he's instantly credible.

Nope, he's not credible. That's the point. Bloomberg is acting out of desperation for his team. This is a sign that Biden is on the ropes and there's no back up plan.

Bring it, Bloomberg. Lets see what your billions can do.

I :lol: when I heard the news tonight.

So now there are 2 socialists (based on policies) that are frontrunners that can't win a national election, one old white guy who is a corporatist with a Ukraine problem, two billionaires, Steyer and now Bloomberg, who can self fund and stay in to the end, and one Buttigieg who can't get the Black support needed to win .

What a hoot!

Oh Yeah.... The Billionaire Bloomberg the carpet bagger from New York. First a so called Independent then a Republican now a Democrat. He destroyed New York City with his three terms in office, just spent $100 million to destroy the State of Virginia. Now he sees that with all the so called diversity in the Democrat presidential primaries he can now interfere in the presidential election.

One problem: I hadn't realized that Bloomberg is so old. 77 years old, damn! He better get a good VP. I suggest Buttigieg, another centrist.

Hmmm...

Could he be the one the DNC Elites had for their chosen candidate all along?

Keep your eye on the media, folks. Their rhetoric about this guy over the next couple months will answer that question.
You got it, buy a few media oligarchs or go out and rally/debate in front of the common folk for the next year. I bet he will take the easy approach and pay the media to do his bidding.

I think the old white guy who is a corporatist with a Ukraine problem is Trump.

If he's the DNC Elite's chosen one, he won't have to pay the media a dime. They'll do it for free. Heck, they are already campaigning against Trump for the DNC.
