Democrat Bloomberg: ‘I’m Spending All My Money To Get Rid Of Trump’

Bloomberg is rejecting criticism from rivals for the Democratic nomination that the billionaire is trying to buy the US election

(Infowars) – US presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg told Reuters he is ready to spend much of his vast fortune to oust Republican President Donald Trump from the White House in 2020.

Bloomberg is rejecting criticism from rivals for the Democratic nomination that the billionaire is trying to buy the US election.

Ranked by Forbes as the eighth-richest American, Bloomberg has flooded US airwaves and social media feeds with messages that he stands the best chance to beat Trump, spending more on campaign ads since he launched his campaign in November than his main Democratic rivals have over the last year.

“Number one priority is to get rid of Donald Trump. I’m spending all my money to get rid of Trump,” Bloomberg told Reuters aboard his campaign bus on Saturday (Jan 11), during a nearly 483km drive across Texas, one of the 14 states that will vote on Super Tuesday on Mar 3.

“Do you want me to spend more or less? End of story.”

US Senator Elizabeth Warren, one of the leading Democratic presidential contenders who has vowed to get money out of politics, blasted Bloomberg when he launched his campaign with a US$37 million TV advertising blitz, accusing the former New York City mayor of trying to buy American democracy.

“These are just political things they say, hoping they catch on and they don’t like me doing it, because it competes with them, not because it’s bad policy,” Bloomberg said.

After entering the race late and missing the first six Democratic debates, Bloomberg generally sits fifth in national public opinion polls behind Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Warren and Pete Buttigieg.

But not just the two liberal standard-bearers of Warren and Sanders, all of the four are too liberal to beat Trump, Bloomberg said.

“One of the reasons I’m reasonably confident I could beat Trump is I would be acceptable to the moderate Republicans you have to have,” said Bloomberg, a former Republican who made his fortune selling financial information to Wall Street firms.

“Whether you like it or not, you can’t win the election unless you get moderate Republicans to cross the line. The others are much too liberal for them and they would certainly vote for Donald Trump.”

After a late entry into the race, he is skipping the first four Democratic nomination contests in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina all due to take place in February.

Instead, Bloomberg is waging a nationwide campaign to capture delegates in later contests such as Texas, which will be the second largest prize among the 14 Super Tuesday states.

At campaign events in San Antonio, Austin and Dallas in Texas on Saturday, Bloomberg said his bipartisan nature made it more likely he could deliver on his pledges to expand health insurance coverage, fight climate change and reduce gun violence.

While his speeches drew modest crowds of no more than a few hundred in Austin and fewer still in San Antonio, many who attended said they were independents or former Trump supporters who had learned about Bloomberg through his massive advertising campaign.

“He’s better than Trump,” said Marcelo Montemayor, 75, who listened to Bloomberg speak at a taco restaurant in San Antonio.

Montemayor voted for Trump in 2016 but worries the president’s conservative appointees to federal courts could undermine abortion rights.

Bloomberg’s television ads have dominated the airwaves both nationwide and in Texas.

In the top four media markets in the Lone Star State, which include Houston and Dallas, Bloomberg has spent more than US$15 million on television ads through mid-January, said Mark Jones, a political scientist at Houston’s Rice University, who analyzed Federal Communications Commission records on ad buys.

That exceeds the combined spending nationwide by Democratic frontrunners in 2019, according to a Wesleyan Media Project analysis of Kantar/CMAG television ad data through mid-December.

And for this year’s Super Bowl broadcast on Feb 2 in Miami, Trump and Bloomberg both plan to air a 60-second television commercial, a prime example of their ability to devote vast resources to reach millions of viewers.

Trump campaign officials said the campaign paid US$10 million for air time. Last year’s National Football League championship game drew nearly 100 million viewers.

“You can’t get to 330 million people by shaking hands. Television is still the magic medium,” Bloomberg said.

“If the Super Bowl wasn’t a place to get to an awful lot of people they wouldn’t be charging a lot, or nobody would be paying it. This is capitalism at work.”

  1. Let him waste all of his money! I don’t think the majority of Americans want a big city big government elitist tyrant as their president even the so called “moderate republicans”.
    Bloomberg may be a good big money manger but his claim to fame in NYC was ridding Giuliani’s coat tails! Giuliani already did the hard work to fix the city in many different ways especially fighting crime before Bloomberg!
    If you really want to see what Bloomberg’s gun control infatuation will do to the USA take a look at Iran or Venezuela as examples!

  2. God bless Michael Bloomberg! He’s doing whatever it takes to do what needs to be done, and the first thing that needs to be done to save our country is to get rid of our fascist warmongering traitor-in-chief Donald Chump and deport him back to Russia. BLOOMBERG 2020!!!

    • the little shrimp is vertically challenged; and based on his comment that he’s going to spend ALL HIS MONEY, on defeating Trump, it makes you wonder if there is a shortage of oxygen down where he lives affecting his brain function.
      He is a dummy for sure! He should spend his money buying lifts for his shoes so he’d look taller.

  3. Bloomberg may end up winning the democrat nomination but if he does it will just be because he bought it out from under the other candidates. Maybe there should be a MAXIMUM LIMIT on how much a candidate can spend to get elected for president.

  4. “I’m spending all my money to get rid of Trump” said Bloomberg, a former Republican, former Democrat, former-Independent, now Democrat. Ain’t that so?

    “Bloomberg said his bipartisan nature made it more likely he could deliver on his pledges” – with a country as totally polarized as we are; he IS kidding or is he hoping or or is he lying?

    “Bloomberg said his bipartisan nature made it more likely he could deliver on his pledges to expand health insurance coverage, fight climate change and reduce gun violence.” Really? There will be no votes from Republicans for Obamacare light, a few from those fooled by the climate change issues, and very few for his gun control (if people find out what he is REALLY trying to do, just like Cuomo and Northam).

  5. Honey, you better start spending your money wisely…. Like, spending it in such a way that people will remember you well. President Trump will be here for the second term. Stop wasting your money……

  6. This should be good news to all the other Democrat candidates stop sending money to the other candidates because Bloomberg is offering to bankroll the entire campaign of the Democrats ! ! (What a friggin idiot Bloomberg is Trump has proved glaringly he is doing what the American people want and need so its foolish to let an over sized ego push one to doing something stupid !)

  7. Yay, Spend it all Mike that will help the economy, then you can apply for welfare, keep your money, sit down & stfu nobody wants to hear your leftist crap just another kooky democrat

  8. He can spend all of his money which does help Trump’s economy and he will still lose. No chance of him being elected. Right now at least it seems the left likes Bernie, the old white male racist socialist.

  9. I wonder if Bloomingbuger gets a chance will he stay with the tune the demonrats are playing??
    That is to tax the RICH INTO POVERTY by taking all their money thru taxes so they can pay for the WELFARE FOR ALL agenda.
    After All, he should be a prime target for this agenda! You know 8th Richest.

  10. ‘I’m Spending All My Money To Get Rid Of Trump’

    There are lies and there are damned lies, then there are BloomingIdiot LIES.

    Bloomberg is worth what, $5? BUT his wealth is what, 54 Billion?

    And he’s saying he’ll spend ONE billion against Trump?

    SO BLOOMBERG IS A DAMNED LIAR.

  11. “Number one priority is to get rid of Donald Trump. I’m spending all my money to get rid of Trump,”
    Bullschiff!
    Let him try though, at least we might not have to contend with the Far ☭Left☭ Traitorous Ratfinks

  12. Bloomberg you may have all the money in the world but you can’t buy the devotion of the Trump voters. You can’t beat a man that stands behind his people, his country and does what he says and delivers what he says . President Trump is and will be The best president that the United States has ever seen in American history .

    • The fact that you’re devoted to a fascist warmongering Russian traitor like Donald Chump is just plain stupid. And people wonder why the rest of the world mocks America…

  13. First Mr. Bloomberg spend SOME OF YOUR BILLIONS on building homes and shelters in the United States for the Homeless and Veteran population, save some of it and spend it on research to help Veterans cope with fighting wars so you can continue to make millions after they left their families to fight for this country and its liberty and if their is any left support Cancer Research especially for young children who have little chance but to rely on the medical community to fix the Cancer Crisis in American. Spending it to beat Trump is a waste of money because with all your money you still won’t beat him. HE IS THE PEOPLE’S PRESIDENT.

  14. Apparently not all billionaires are smart. This guy does not know which side his bread is buttered. The country is doing well and he is willing to spend a billion plus because he does not like Trump. The left’s policies that are being espoused will not help the hard working people in the middle class or want to be middle class. He does not have a platform – He wants a nanny state to “protect” us from ourselves. Gun control leading to gun abolishment of gun rights. among other rights. He is against the forward way a man acts and speaks. What a flower, he should be sucking his thumb in the corner. And what are his plans? What is his stance on sanctuary cities and the lawlessness going on this country. He is a loser- let him give his money away to the people and charities who need it.

  15. Democrats should celebrate that Trump is breaking all the Democrat millionaires’ bank accounts by getting them to spend all their money running for President! None of them have a chance: Bloomberg, Sanders, & the rest of the multitude! The Republicans, moderate Democrats, & Independents know Trump has brought the US out of the money grubbing, big government hands! Trump wins hands down 2020!

  16. Bloomberg is jealous he cannot be president. He doesn’t have the “right stuff”. SOOO, is he going to help Socialists Crazy Bernie or Pocahontas become get into the WH??? What a lunatic. He was good for NYC, AFTER Giuliani clean it up. Mike cannot figure out what is first a Dem, then a Repub, and then back to a Dem. Next, he’ll be Libertarian or a Greenie.

  17. He needs to go and to take Tom Styer with him. Let Joe, Liz, Bernie et al try to take our President down. AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN!!! He has no real WORKABLE PLAN to help the American People to thrive and to keep us safe. All the BS he is spouting is just wrong! California as a shining example of “greatness” give me a break!!!

    • What’s the matter, Trumpanzee? Scared of President Bloomberg or President Steyer fixing America? Go back to Russia, comrade.

  18. Well my thinking is he will lose and he will still be living as he does today, body guards, limousines, mansions plenty of money. No way this man will be without a buck in his pocket and his body guards around him.. liar as all other democrats.

  19. Dear Mr. Bloomberg – Please spend it ALL, so we won’t have to hear from your sorry butt anymore once Trump wins re-election in 2020!

  20. Bloomberg doesn’t get it. He thinks a lot of expensive ads pushing gun control and climate change and his hatred of Trump is going to fly. He is as stupid as his big gulp policy. If you want a dictator in office then look no farther than Bloomberg himself. He will destroy the economy and make every American miserable with his strong arm left wing tactics to change the country and impose his socialist ideals.

  21. Let him spend all of his money, maybe when he loses he will just go wander the streets homeless like the victims of the liberal democrat policies

  22. You also spent a lot of money here in Tennessee trying to influence the senate race, But the people of Tennessee rejected you and your money.

  23. Dems just don’t get it – we want presidential candidates that have a feasible plan to improve the Country. To make citizens wealthier, safer, to ensure our freedoms, our choice. (not to outlaw large sodas).
    If they had that, then “getting rid of Trump” would be a mote point. Dems just don’t get it, Trump delivers, they don’t.
