in the vicinity ofthe video, Michael Bloomberg: I’m not running for President
The former mayor of NYC, Michael Bloomberg writes in an op-ed that he run for President in the year 2020.
Some of his most revealing comments on why he decided against running for President, the moderate former New York city mayor Mike Bloomberg cited his age-but also took aim at the progressive wing of the Democratic party.
“Don’t start a four-year job, or maybe a eight-year job, at the age of 79, perhaps the smartest thing to do. But if I think if I thought I could win, would have declared,” the 77-year-old billionaire media mogul.

“I just could not see a way where I can get them the nomination could be,” Bloomberg said Thursday during a speech on the Bermuda Executive Forum in New York City. “It is not easy to happen on a national level-for someone like me, where I am, unless I was willing to change everything, what my views and go on what is called CNN, an” apology tour.'”
While he poured millions of his own money in the fight against climate change and the fight gun violence, the Democrat turned Republican turned independent, who last year re-registered as a Democrat, suggested that he simply more moderate than the ever-growing field of the 2020 Democratic presidential contenders, many of whom are increasingly moving to the left.
Shows on the 76-year-old former Vice-President Joe Biden, who is likely to jump to in the White house race next month, Bloomberg said, “Joe Biden went and apologized, male, over 50, white.”
“He apologized for the legislation, which is actually a pretty good anti-crime bill, which, if the liberals ever read, most of what you would like to be in this bill. You should love it. But they did not bother even to read it. You are anti-crime, you need to add anti-populist,” Bloomberg.
Bloomberg was referring to the efforts of Biden to cast the values themselves as “progressive” more recently, for the trace on the call the Vice President of Pence for a “decent” person according to the liberal-actress Cynthia Nixon complained.

The former mayor of New York, also met with former Rep. Beto O’rourke of Texas, which last week declared his candidacy for the democratic nomination, and quickly raised an eye-popping $6.1 million in its first 24 hours as a candidate.
“And so everybody else, Beto, whatever his name is, he apologized for being born,” said Bloomberg, brought laughter from the audience. “I mean, I don’t mean to be rude. And a lot of people love him and say he is a smart guy, and one day, if he wins, I would certainly support him.”
O’rourke has the privilege recently to apologize for joking that his wife, their children accepted “sometimes with my help”, and also criticism, that he enjoyed, white.
Bloomberg is seriously considering launching a presidential candidacy, and the beginning of this year, he made campaign-style swings of the early voting primary and caucus States. But, he announced, on 5. March that he would not run for the White house.
