When billionaire businessman Michael Bloomberg entered the 2020 presidential election, he came out swinging.
Bloomberg declared that his candidacy was inspired by his belief that none of the running Democrats have what it takes to defeat President Trump; however, the businessman likely failed to realize that this is merely the pot calling the kettle black. Bloomberg is just like the 2020 Democrats whom he clearly harbors disdain for; like them, he doesn’t have a snowball’s chance of defeating President Trump….and even his own campaign aides know this.
During a Fox News interview, Bloomberg campaign manager Kevin Sheekey admitted that President Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign is coming along quite nicely. He even stated that if the 2020 election were held today, President Trump would win, as documented by Washington Examiner.
Bloomberg’s Campaign Manager on the Trump 2020 Campaign
Sheekey kicked things off by giving his dues to Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale. The Bloomberg aide praised Parscale for his strategy in significant voter outreach to Americans in Wisconsin, Michigan, Florida, Arizona, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina.
Sheekey stated that Parscale isn’t running a “national campaign,” but rather one in the six, aforementioned states. He also explained that the manner in which President Trumps’ campaign is progressing is what prompted Bloomberg to declare his candidacy. Since his time as a candidate, the billionaire businessman has repeatedly parroted left-wing talking points, denounced gun ownership, and claimed that he can win over moderate Republicans.
At a different point during the interview, Bloomberg’s campaign manager criticized the strategies of other Democrats. While 2020 candidates are largely focusing their attention on early voting states, Skeekey maintains that not participating in the open contests will engender more longterm success for Bloomberg’s campaign.
Trying to Buy the Election
The lateness of Bloomberg’s entry into the 2020 presidential election combined with the tens of millions of dollars he’s spending on ads has engendered some backlash. 2020 rivals and others aren’t hesitating to opine that Bloomberg is simply trying to buy this presidential election.
Since the billionaire businessman is funding his own campaign, this prevents him from reaching the DNC’s donor requirements to appear on debate stages. Moreover, Bloomberg doesn’t seem particularly mindful of early voting states or Iowa caucuses.
The billionaire businessman has responded to criticism of his campaign on multiple occasions. Bloomberg maintains that he’s willing to spend whatever is necessary to defeat President Trump. Thus far, this entails throwing obscene amounts of money on anti-Trump ads which are filled with flagrant lies and mischaracterizations.
Since spreading countless lies in his ads, Bloomberg has earned the nickname of “Mini Mike” from President Trump.
