President Donald Trump took shots at the former NYC mayor, Mike Bloomberg and his $62 billion fortune claiming he’s “illegally” buying the Democratic nomination for president. He again ranted about Mike’s height.

Bloomberg is estimated to have spent over $400 million on a wave of TV campaign ads, social media campaigns and publicity projects all aimed at winning the nomination as the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate in November. Bloomberg only announced his candidacy on Nov, 24, 2019, meaning he’s spent some $100 million every month since December. His total spending is ten times larger than that of frontrunner Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, who also happens to be the top fundraiser among the eight men and women still in contention for the nomination.

Trump tweeted Tuesday what Bloomberg is doing by spending so massively is “nothing less than a large scale illegal campaign contribution. He 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?”

He accused Bloomberg of “illegally buying the Democrat Nomination.” He also repeated his claim the Democratic Party is trying “again” to take the election away from Sanders in a bid to sow discord among Democrats. Trump also sleighted Bloomberg for his height.
