Michael Bloomberg’s Right-Wing Views on Foreign Policy Make Him a Perfect Candidate for the Republican Nomination

Remember: Biden, for all his sins, is a lifelong Democrat. Bloomberg, however, served as an elected Republican between 2001 and 2007.

Bloomberg is so right-wing that he makes Biden sound like Bernie.

I’m disgusted by the idea that Michael Bloomberg or any billionaire thinks they can circumvent the political process and spend tens of millions of dollars to buy elections. If you can’t build grassroots support for your candidacy, you have no business running for president.

Clinton 2020 whisper campaign hits new heights

The New York Times also reported on Tuesday that Clinton and former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg have told people in recent conversations that they would join the Democratic primary “if they thought they could win.” But they were “skeptical there would be an opening.”

Since losing the election in 2016, some Democrats have said there isn’t room for Clinton in a party that is trying to move forward after a stunning defeat.
