Bloomberg Rips Trump and Trump Backs Down
Tweet Exchange Over Racism
In a Tweet exchange this week Trump called Bloomberg a racist.
I would point to the Tweet, but Trump backed down. He deleted it.
I can point to a nice copy.
Bloomberg responded with a Statement.
“President Trump’s deleted tweet is the latest example of his endless efforts to divide Americans. I inherited the police practice of stop-and-frisk, and as part of our effort to stop gun violence it was overused. By the time I left office, I cut it back by 95%, but I should’ve done it faster and sooner. I regret that and I have apologized — and I have taken responsibility for taking too long to understand the impact it had on Black and Latino communities. ...
The President’s attack on me clearly reflects his fear over the growing strength of my campaign. Make no mistake Mr. President: I am not afraid of you and I will not let you bully me or anyone else in America. Between now and November, I will do everything I can to defeat you whether I am on the ballot or not.”
Stop and Frisk Works
What does that make Trump? Racist? Hypocrite? Both?
In case Trump deletes that, I made a copy.
Who is the racist and who apologized?
Paging Michael Bloomberg
I disagree with Bloomberg on climate change. And I doubt the feasibility of what he proposes. But I would rather spend money on the Arizona desert than dropping bombs and making enemies.
Afghanistan and Mideast
I really thought Trump would pull troops out of Afghanistan and the Mideast. Unfortunately, we are still there.
As a last minute campaign effort I suspect Trump will finally pull off that trick. But it will be nothing but a campaign ploy at this late stage.
Even Republicans Sick of Trump's Warmongering
Right to Choose
I disagree with Bloomberg on many things, but that isn't one of them.
100 Mayors Like Mike
Bully in the WhiteHouse
Moderates and independents are sick of Trump belittling everyone in Tweet storms.
And it is no way to run the country.
What got Trump elected will not keep him there.
That message will resonate.
This is not an endorsement of Bloomberg, just my opinion, but I have had enough of Trump.
