On Monday during an interview with Bill Hemmer of Fox News, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg's campaign manager made a shocking admission when he claimed that if the 2020 election were held today, President Trump would win.
“Right now, if the election were held, I think President Trump probably is reelected,” Bloomberg campaign manager Kevin Sheekey said.

He suggested Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, is focusing only on a handful of pro-Trump states.
“That’s one of the reasons Mike got into this campaign,” Sheekey said, referring to Bloomberg’s concerns that the Democratic field is not up to the challenge of beating the president.
Part of the reason for his rising fortunes is his strategy: Bloomberg has spent nearly $250 million on advertising in the two months since he joined the Democratic race, Politico reported Sunday. Prices for political TV ads have jumped 20% since Bloomberg’s campaign began, the publication noted.
Meanwhile, Trump’s campaign is focusing much of its arsenal on Facebook and Google, with the president doling out at least $12 million on Google since May 2018, CNBC reported Jan. 16, citing data from a progressive analytics group, Acronym.
President Trump has been very critical of Bloomberg in recent weeks after the former New York City mayor has been spending money on misleading ads.
“Mini Mike Bloomberg ads are purposely wrong — A vanity project for him to get into the game,” President Trump wrote in a tweet. “Nobody in many years has done for the USA what I have done for the USA, including the greatest economy in history, rebuilding our military, biggest ever tax & regulation cuts, & 2nd A!”
The President also shredded Bloomberg for purposely avoiding the debate stage.
“Mini Mike Bloomberg doesn’t get on the Democrat Debate Stage because he doesn’t want to,” tweeted the President. “He is a terrible debater and speaker. If he did, he would go down in the polls even more (if that is possible!).”
These comments by President Trump are similar to comments he made on Monday.
"Mini Mike Bloomberg is spending a lot of money on False Advertising," the President said while giving Bloomberg a new nickname. "I was the person who saved Pre-Existing Conditions in your Healthcare, you have it now, while at the same time winning the fight to rid you of the expensive, unfair and very unpopular Individual Mandate and, if Republicans win in court and take back the House of Representatives, your healthcare, that I have now brought to the best place in many years, will become the best ever, by far. I will always protect your Pre-Existing Conditions, the Dems will not!"
