Bloomberg Considers Entering Presidential Race
Michael Bloomberg is reportedly thinking of entering the 2020 presidential election if the Democrats can’t get their act together and select a decent candidate.
The former mayor of New York is concerned that the current field of Democratic candidates is too weak, with no one candidate strong enough to defeat Trump.
While Bloomberg originally ran as a Republican during his time as mayor of New York City, he officially registered as a Democrat last year.
Bloomberg is just the latest liberal to openly question the Democrats’ ability to beat Trump in the upcoming election.

Then, sweaty and out of breath, Nowacki finally crossed the finish line, dropped to one knee, and proposed to his girlfriend.
