    I had never had a chance to listen to him. He is a very knowledgeable person with experience in government and business. Now he is running for president. I think he would be good president.

    But for real, Bloomberg needs to go away. I look forward to improving our overall society with his ill gotten tax loop hole wealth.

    Yes, Trump has often changed his mind but only on his terms, never when another person calls him out and suggests that he do so. That's unlikely to happen.

    Yes, I think perhaps if Michael runs, he should run with Andrew Yang. Or the other way around... Yang's VP. As a team I think it would be very good for the country. Two highly INTELLIGENT men.

      Thinking same week ago. Very hard for grassroot candidates like Yang with no corporate donations to even get close to being the nominee. Hopefully in future that changes but for 2020 it is highly unlikely. You still need the big money for ads so American people know who you are. Bloomberg can provide that financial backing.

    If Andrew debates Bloomberg. This will be like the fire and scissors.... very tight call but Math will prevale over Money.... let’s go Yang 2020

    • Seven Costanza
      Seven Costanza Day ago

      Yang and other grassroots candidates having hard time getting donations since they cannot accept corporate money. lot of money needed to get ads up, which Trump will have. Maybe Bloomberg/Yang ticket with Gabbard as Sec as State.

      @John Fuller Russian, I don't know, but I am familiar with both sides perpetuating derision.

      @John Fuller And still my question goes unanswered, how much and for what? For you never Trumpers, I guess all us deplorables are Russian shills. Derision comes from what side, yours or mine?

    4.5 million from a 52,000 million net worth is probably an affordable amount and maybe a tax write-off for him. I think that is .0000865% of his net worth.

    After I do some due diligence research on him and he passes my vetting, He’ll be getting my vote in the primaries. This guy is the most moderate sensible guy I’ve heard from, this guy just makes sense. He’s a higher ground kind of guy it seems.

      If you don't see the reality of climate change today, you´re lost. It´s a different question whether humans actually have such a big impact on it (I'm not convinced they do; CO2 is a trace gas), but worldwide weather conditions have become more extreme in recent years.

      @Melissa Ball I don't understand where you are coming from? You call him a Philanthropist which by definition means he will help. Then it seems to me that you are saying that someone educated in our government and diplomacy will? He was the Mayor of NYC for an unprecedented 3 terms.
      Additionally, I think Yang would make a good partner for him. I think they would compliment each other very well.

    • Melissa Ball
      Melissa Ball 9 days ago

      That's a recipe for disaster. Billionaire philanthropists won't help... Educated in our government and world diplomacy will.

    Oh man, I really loved this interview-- someone who speaks and actually knows what they are talking about. Diplomacy, compassion, kindness, a deep understanding of finance and business, and even a touch of humor.... all things missing in our current WH occupant. I can't believe I am going to say this, but I can see myself jumping onboard.

    He's not a bad man on the surface but truly he is twenty time more powerful than Trump. You should be afraid, very afraid. When he pulled that stunt getting a third term voted not by the people but by his council is the real Mike.

    Bloomberg doesn’t have a message for neither republicans or democrats but supposing he is facing Trump he could win. He is a unifying leader. I like him though I don’t believe in climate change nonsense.

    The president has get rid off good experienced people because he thinks he knows better than anybody and after they are thrown out he criticize them very hardly.

    Even though it's an old interview, it's refreshing listening to someone who can answer questions directly and in an intelligent manner instead of spin or ignoring the question like EVERYONE in the Trump Administration does. He could be the commonsense centralist the Democrat party needs right now to defeat Trump.
