President Trump called out Mike Bloomberg on Twitter over “illegal campaign contributions.” President Trump’s saying that that Bloomberg is “spreading money all over the place, only to have recipients of his cash payments, many former opponents, happily joining or supporting his campaign. Isn’t that called a payoff?”
“Mini is illegally buying the Democrat Nomination. They are taking it away from Bernie again. Mini Mike, Major Party Nominations are not for sale! Good luck in the debate tomorrow night and remember, no standing on boxes!”
In the last quarter of 2019, Bloomberg spent $188 million dollars on advertising. Just yesterday, Fox News reported that Bloomberg “shelled out more than $344 million since declaring his candidacy in late November to run ads on TV, Facebook and Google, according to figures from Advertising Analytics, a well-known ad tracking firm.”
Bloomberg is spending more money than any other Democrat candidate right now. Tom Steyer spent $154 million in the last quarter of 2019, almost tripple the amount of 3rd most spending Democrat candidate, Bernie Sanders.
Bloomberg doesn’t care if he “loses,” according to NBC News. “Bloomberg’s vast tech operation will also be redirected to help the eventual nominee, as Democrats struggle to compete with the vaunted digital operation built by Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale. Hawkfish, a digital company started by Bloomberg that’s carrying out his $100 million online ad campaign, will be retained through Election Day to help defeat Trump, the officials said.”
He’s blowing through cash to create a parallel (or bigger) unofficial, uncoordinated party infrastructure in case the DNC can’t help the eventual Democratic nominee enough in states that should be competitive with Trump.
Is President Trump right? Is Michael Bloomberg buying the Democrat nomination?
