On Thursday, President Donald Trump doubled down on his attacks on Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg, saying that the former New York City Mayor reminded him of failed 2016 Republican primary candidate Jeb Bush.
“Mini Mike Bloomberg is a LOSER who has money but can’t debate and has zero presence, you will see,” the President tweeted.
President Trump continued by comparing Bloomberg to "Low Energy" Jeb Bush.
“He reminds me of a tiny version of Jeb “Low Energy” Bush, but Jeb has more political skill and has treated the Black community much better than Mini!” President Trump wrote.
President Trump continued his attacks on Bloomberg as he continued to make fun of his height.
"Mini Mike is a 5’4” mass of dead energy who does not want to be on the debate stage with these professional politicians," the President tweeted. "No boxes please. He hates Crazy Bernie and will, with enough money, possibly stop him. Bernie’s people will go nuts!"
The President's attacks on Bloomberg is nothing new. During an interview with Sean Hannity before the 2020 Super Bowl, President Trump punched back at Bloomberg by joking about his height.
“Why he should he get a box to stand on?” Trump questioned according to Fox News. “Why should he be entitled to that, really? Then does that mean everyone else gets a box?”
According to Julie Wood, a Bloomberg spokeswoman, President Trump is “lying."
“He is a pathological liar who lies about everything: his fake hair, his obesity, and his spray-on tan,” she said.
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
The full interview was scheduled to air Sunday afternoon.
Trump had already fired off a series of early Sunday anti-Bloomberg tweets, calling the billionaire “part of the Fake News” and insisting he “is going nowhere” and “just wasting his money,” despite rising in the polls.
Bloomberg responded with his own aside: “Looks like our ads are keeping you up at night. We’ve got one in particular you should watch today.” Bloomberg’s 60-second spot will focus on the impact of gun violence.
Trump was spending his weekend in Palm Beach, Florida, where he has been golfing and mingling with guests at his dues-paying Mar-a-Lago club. On Saturday night, he made an appearance at an event there hosted by the “Trumpettes” fan club.
“We just had our best poll numbers that we’ve ever had,” Trump said in his remarks, according to video posted on social media. He also praised singer Lee Greenwood, whose song “Proud to be an American” is played every time Trump takes the stage at his rallies. Also in attendance, per photographs, were actor Stephen Baldwin and Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr.
The president was expected to host his annual Super Bowl watch party in Florida before returning to Washington late Sunday.
President Trump has attacked Bloomberg in any way possible since the billionaire announced he would be running for president.
“Many of the ads you are watching were paid for by Mini Mike Bloomberg. He is going nowhere, just wasting his money, but he is getting the DNC to rig the election against Crazy Bernie, something they wouldn’t do for @CoryBooker and others. They are doing it to Bernie again, 2016,” President Trump tweeted a couple weeks back.
“Mini Mike is part of the Fake News. They are all working together. In fact, Bloomberg isn’t covering himself (too boring to do), or other Dems. Only Trump. That sounds fair! It’s all the Fake News Media, and that’s why nobody believes in them any more,” he added.
Trump added fuel to the fire with yet another tweet: “Mini Mike is now negotiating both to get on the Democrat Primary debate stage, and to have the right to stand on boxes, or a lift, during the debates. This is sometimes done, but really not fair!”
