President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Monday to criticize billionaire businessman and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg, accusing him of false advertising.
"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!"
The false advertising that President Trump was accusing Bloomberg of was for his attacks on the President over his healthcare stance.

Check out what Breitbart reported:
Bloomberg is running the same tactics that helped Democrats successfully win the House of Representatives in 2018 — threatening that Republicans’ attempt to repeal Obamacare would remove healthcare coverage for preexisting conditions.
Republicans say, however, that if Obamacare were repealed, it would be replaced by a better plan that would still cover preexisting conditions.
President Trump claimed that he saved coverage for preexisting conditions while working to get rid of the individual mandate requiring all Americans to get health insurance or pay a fine.
The Senate’s attempt to pass a repeal of Obamacare blew up after late Sen. John McCain voted to prevent it from going to conference.
Trump has repeatedly pressed Republicans for a better healthcare plan but has so far promised a better plan if Republicans win big in 2020.
Obamacare itself faces a Supreme Court ruling on its constitutionality.
Bloomberg is trying anything and everything to gain support within the Democratic party. In a new campaign ad, Bloomberg featured Judith Sheindlin, more commonly known as TV’s “Judge Judy.”
Bloomberg has had a hard time connecting with the middle class considering he is so disconnected from working America.
The Hill believes that Judge Judy's endorsement can be a game changer. Check out what they reported:
Celebrity endorsements are a well-worn part of politics, of course, but they typically deliver less than candidates hope for: A quick rush of headlines, maybe, but most voters don’t ultimately make choices based on their favorite television characters.
Sheindlin could be different.
That has a lot to do with her brand of television and how her massive audience — nearly ten million people a day — views her.
The 30-second commercial, titled “Judge Him,” shows Sheindlin sitting in what looks like judicial chambers, advocating for Bloomberg’s “steady leadership” in “very challenging times.” The setting and the atmosphere capitalize on what the former New York family court judge has spent nearly 25 television seasons building: credibility.
Audience studies conducted during my years as a CBS executive working with the “Judge Judy” show consistently ranked her as tough, fair, honest and direct — attributes any politician would die for. Her standing in our wider popular culture runs high: According to a 2013 poll, more Americans trust Judge Judy than any of the Supreme Court justices. A 2016 survey revealed 10 percent of college graduates believe she actually already serves on the highest court in the land.
