Billionaire Former Mayor Of New York To Join Race To Oust Trump

It is another businessman who is now contemplating to run the American election race in at least one state with an early deadline for filling in nomination papers.

This time, it’s the former mayor of New York, Michel Bloomberg, who is going to step in as a Democratic candidate and has his eye, on the right agenda as well. He is advocating for gun control and climate change. According to his adviser Howard Wolfson, this last minute bid is to justify his thought that there aren’t many solid condentors to beat down Donald Trump.

The 77 year old charismatic businessman is going to file his nomination in Alabama.  Of the 17 Democratic candidates trying to take down Trump, the frontrunner after successful wins in Virginia and Kentucky include Joe Biden, Senator Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.

While making a public media statement Wolfson has elaborated that the job that has started to bring down Trump need not be left undone and has to be brought to its finish. For this, “we need proper positioning which the current field of candidates is missing.”

“Based on his record of accomplishment, leadership and his ability to bring people together to drive change, Mike would be able to take the fight to Trump and win,” Mr Wolfson added.

A multimillionaire, he has great societal standing and has been (apparently) doing a lot of polling in early voting states like Iowa and New Hampshire. In comparison to Trump, he has a far healthy net worth of $52 billion.  Originally a Democrat, he changed sides to go onto become mayor of New York City in 2001.

He served three terms as mayor until 2012 after which he rejoined the Democratic Party in 2018.

Bloomberg is a large financial backer of gun-control advocacy group Everytown for Gun Safety, which he help found in 2014 and has been vocal about the issue of climate change as well.

Regarded as a moderate Democrat, he somehow dismissed a potential run for the presidency earlier this year. But his entry might just be a game changer for the battle against Trump, provided he registers in other states which have later filing deadlines and can win the trust of the people quickly.
