Failing to make a true dent in the Democratic presidential primary on Super Tuesday, NBC News reports Mike Bloomberg will reasses the race Wednesday, but he is still punching.
The former New York City mayor spent his campaign rally in West Palm Beach, Florida, responding to President Donald Trump’s attacks on his campaign and his height.
“Where I come from, we measure people from the neck up,” Bloomberg said, rejecting Trump’s moniker as Mini Mike.
“That’s why he keeps attacking us on Twitter,” Bloomberg added.
“Clearly, Trump is scared stiff of facing us.”
Bloomberg added, if he were to win the presidency, “how about no tweeting from the Oval Office ever again?”
The billionaire’s big-budget campaign officially kicked off his race in his first primary states, skipping the first four states.
“No matter how many delegates we win tonight, we have done something no one else thought was possible: In just three months, we’ve gone from 1% in the polls to being a contender for the Democratic nomination for president,” Bloomberg told his rally.
“Tonight we proved something very important: We proved we can win the voters who will decide the general election, and isn’t that what this is all about?”
Bloomberg vowed to win back the rust belt states lost to Trump in 2016 with a campaign that is “sensible, workable, and achievable.”
“I know you’re not used to seeing a New Yorker in Southern Florida in late winter, but unlike the president, I didn’t come here to golf, or to reveal classified information to Mar-a-Lago members,” Bloomberg said in another shot at Trump near his winter White House.
“I came here because winning in November starts in Florida.”
President Trump’s middle son fired some early Super Tuesday shots at Bloomberg.
“I think Mini Mike is out after tonight,” Eric Trump told Fox News.
“Where is he to be found tonight? I don’t think he has a chance of winning any state. I don’t think he has a chance of getting to the 15% threshold in many of the states.
“It might be the biggest flop of any campaign in modern history when you spend 500, 600 [million dollars]. My father didn’t spend $500 million to win the entire thing. He spent $300 million to win the entire thing – that’s to beat the 17 Republicans and go on to beat Hilary Clinton,” Trump continued.
“You have this guy who spent $500 million and he’s nowhere to be found on Super Tuesday. That’s worse than Jeb.”
