US Presidential elections will take place in about ten months from now, and the stakes are at an all-time high. Democrats are trying their best to remove Republican President Donald Trump from the White House. In the latest development, US Presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg said he is geared up to spend as much as possible from his wealth to expel Trump out of the office in 2020. This statement from Michael has attracted a lot of criticism claiming that he is trying to buy the Presidential election. However, Michael Bloomberg rejected all such claims.
Michael Bloomberg is the eighth-richest American as per Forbes. His team is ensuring that US social media feeds are flooded continuously with promotions indicating that Bloomberg stands the best chance to beat President Trump. Interestingly, Bloomberg has spent the highest on campaign ads since he launched his campaign in November than any other Democratic rivals over the last one year. Speaking to Reuters during his drive across Texas, Bloomberg said - “My number one priority is to get rid of Donald Trump. I’m spending all my money to get rid of Trump.” However, Bloomberg’s plan didn’t go well with his own party members itself. Elizabeth Warren, who is one of the leading contenders, blasted Bloomberg when he announced the $37 million ad campaign.
Bloomberg has entered the Presidential race very late, missing the first six Democratic debates. He is now at fifth position in national public opinion polls behind Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Pete Buttigieg. Bloomberg isn’t affected by any criticism coming his way - “ These are just political things to say. I’m hoping they catch on and don’t like me doing it, because it competes with them, not because it’s bad policy. One of the reasons I’m reasonably confident about beating Trump is I would be acceptable to the moderate Republicans you have to have,” said Bloomberg, who created his wealth by selling financial information to Wall Street firms.
