Almost every Democratic Convention speaker had negative words to say about Donald Trump. But only one really got under Donald Trump’s skin…and that was former Mayor of NYC, Michael Bloomberg. At the convention Bloomberg famously said, “I’m a New Yorker, and I know a con when I see one.” He also remarked that Bloomberg is a true billionaire (worth $50 billion +) and started with nothing, as opposed to Donald Trump who inherited his wealth from his father, and says he is worth $10 billion, but most estimates put his worth around $3.5 billion.
At a campaign rally in Davenport, Iowa, on Thursday, Trump responded—albeit somewhat unusually, without using his critic’s name. “I was going to hit one guy, in particular a very little guy,” Trump said. (Bloomberg is 5′ 8″.) “I was going to hit this guy so hard his head would spin. He wouldn’t know what the hell happened.”
In an appearance on CNN in January, when Bloomberg was mulling a third-party run for president, Trump questioned Forbes’ estimate of the former mayor’s worth ($36.5 billion). “We used to be friends,” Trump said. “I guess we’re not friends anymore.”
"Little" Michael Bloomberg, who never had the guts to run for president, knows nothing about me. His last term as Mayor was a disaster!
