On Thursday after Wednesday evening’s Democratic primary debate, former New York City mayor and billionaire Michael Bloomberg declared President Donald Trump the “real winner” of the Democratic debate.
“How was your night last night?” Bloomberg asked at a campaign event on Thursday. “Look, the real winner in the debate last night was Donald Trump.”
Bloomberg continued by warning his fans that Socialist Bernie Sanders would not be able to beat President Trump in 2020 if he were to win the Democratic nomination.
“If we choose a candidate who appeals to a small base, like Sen. Sanders, it will be a fatal error,” he said. “We need Democrats and independents and Republicans to win.”
The billionaire continued by attacking Sanders by noting how the Democrats took over the House of Representatives with a more moderate stance opposed to Sanders’ far-left stance.
“That won’t happen with pie in the sky promises and proposals that will bankrupt the country,” he said. “Voters don’t want empty talk; they want leadership. They don’t want hand-waving and finger-pointing.”
Check out what Breitbart reported:
Bloomberg spoke at a campaign rally in Utah after a poor debate debut at the ninth Democrat debate on Wednesday.
He boasted that he was putting together a coalition to defeat Trump in the general election in Utah, citing Sen. Mitt Romney’s vote to impeach the president as proof that he could win.
“Mitt Romney proved that the Trump fever gripping the Republican party can break here,” he said. “And in November, we’re going to prove that a Democrat candidate for president can compete statewide.”
Bloomberg kicked off his rally in Salt Lake City with a joke about Mormon pioneer Brigham Young.
“Now, I have a question for all of you, and I mean no offense by this, but let’s say Brigham Young showed up today, and the question is, “Would he settle in Salt Lake City, or given the construction on I-15 is so bad that he calls Sandy his home instead?” he said.
It didn’t take long for President Trump to chime in after he heard that Bloomberg had declared him the real winner of the debate.
““The real winner last night was Donald Trump.” Mini Mike Bloomberg. I agree!” he said on Twitter.
