Former NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg prepares for presidential race

Former NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg prepares for presidential race

President Donald Trump on Friday said he'd be "happy" to run against fellow billionaire Michael Bloomberg amid reports he was close to entering the Democratic race for president.

"Little Michael will fail".

The 77-year-old had said only in March this year that he would not run for president, reportedly because of the perceived dominance of Democratic front-runner Joe Biden.

Trump says there's "nobody" he'd "rather run against" than Bloomberg.

However, Bloomberg is doubtful that some of the current candidates may conquer Trump, according to a spokesman.

"When people look at the White House and see this multi-millionaire messing up so many things", the Minnesota senator told CNN's State of the Union, "I don't think they think, 'Oh, we need someone richer.' I think you have to earn votes, not buy them".

He added: “It wasnt just to wish me a good weekend”. He's. he's really a nothing'. He's got some personal problems.

On Israel, Bloomberg said he had "deep reservations" about the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, which the Trump administration withdrew from in May 2018, reimposing sanctions lifted under it, along with enacting new financial penalties against the regime.

Trump, too, had been complimentary of Bloomberg in the past.

"There's no other reasonable explanation (to that reaction) than trying to play as flawless as possible", Djokovic said from London.

One person who may have helped convince Bloomberg to jump in the race is Judge Judy, who endorsed the former mayor in an op-ed for USA Today.

The next question is whether it's reasonable to expect Bloomberg to find a sizable number of Democratic primary voters who'd rally behind him.

The founder of Bloomberg LP, Michael Bloomberg, is not entirely wrong in his speculations.

On Thursday, the news broke that Bloomberg was again thinking about running for president.

Alabama has the earliest filing deadline among Democratic primary states, with Friday being the last day to do so ahead of its March 3 contest. The reason behind the timing is that Alabama has an early filing deadline for presidential candidates. A philanthropist, he has donated millions of dollars to educational, medical and other causes.

But as of late, he became anxious that none of the Democrats running could beat Trump - especially if the leading liberals, Sens.

It is also understood that he does not see the two leading liberals in the race, Elizabeth Warren a senator in MA and Bernie Sanders a Vermont senator, as potential winners against Trump.

Bloomberg's view of Warren was apparent when the two appeared together onstage in Des Moines, Iowa in August, at an Everytown for Gun Safety event, which the billionaire Bloomberg funded.

However, spokesman Jason Schechter told United States media that an announcement "could come as early as next week".
