BREAKING: Michael Bloomberg Says He Won't Enter Presidential Race

NYT reports:

Michael R. Bloomberg, who for months quietly laid the groundwork to run for president as an independent, will not enter the 2016 campaign, he said Monday, citing his fear that a three-way race could lead to the election of a candidate who would imperil the security and stability of the United States: Donald J. Trump.

In a forceful condemnation of his fellow New Yorker, Mr. Bloomberg said Mr. Trump has run “the most divisive and demagogic presidential campaign I can remember, preying on people’s prejudices and fears.” He said he was alarmed by Mr. Trump’s threats to bar Muslim immigrants from entering the country and to initiate trade wars against China and Japan, and he was disturbed by Mr. Trump’s “feigning ignorance of David Duke,” the white supremacist leader whose support Mr. Trump initially refused to disavow.

“These moves would divide us at home and compromise our moral leadership around the world,” Mr. Bloomberg said in a column published Monday afternoon on Bloomberg View, his opinion site. “The end result would be to embolden our enemies, threaten the security of our allies, and put our own men and women in uniform at greater risk.”

I don't trust this power hungry character. Is he just setting up to grab a brokered Republic convention? SEE: George Schultz: Bloomberg Will Become the Republican Candidate in a Brokered Convention

  1. Trump is preying on our fears? Isn't that the "handbook on how to get elected" of the entire republican party? Isn't that what government does period? Prey on our fears, and if we aren't scared enough they make us fearful? If the people aren't afraid of anything, they might realize they don't need the State, which of course is very unacceptable.
    Bloomberg needs to watch that clip of the debate a few times back when the candidates couldn't say "terror" enough times. Isn't Bloomberg the one who said New York had to have "stop and frisk" to keep people safe from terrorist?
    Isn't the establishment preying on people's fears by telling people they need to fear Trump and why?

    HAHA, these people are so stupid, but more so the people who elect them.
