Breaking: Michael Bloomberg DROPS OUT - Refuses To Endorse Bernie Sanders - Says The Democratic Process is "Rigged"
Michael Bloomberg dropped out of the Presidential race today declaring that the democratic process was rigged against him. After claiming he was going to spend a whopping two billion dollars in advertisements he suddenly took the news media by surprise today and threw in the towel. Does a man that small even sweat? Independent UK has the details:
Independent reported Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign has called on Mike Bloomberg to drop out of the Democratic primaries over leaked audio seemingly showing the billionaire White House hopeful defending his controversial stop-and-frisk initiative as a former mayor.
Nina Turner, one of the Vermont senator’s top campaign surrogates and national co-chairwoman of his 2020 campaign, said in a statement to Axios: “What has been exposed is the true nature of Mayor Bloomberg. So, one apology just because you're running for president does not erase the damage that you have done.”
“He should not be running, now that that has come up,” she added. “I think he should drop out of the race."
The comments come as Mr Sanders appears to be leading the polls ahead of the New Hampshire first-in-the-nation primary. Mr Bloomberg, one of the last editions to the already-crowded field of Democratic candidates, declined to campaign heavily in any of the crucial early-voting states, often seen as essential in securing the Democratic nomination.
Mr Bloomberg, who has targeted black voters in his late bid for the nomination in key states, has faced significant backlash over the stop-and-frisk policy he instituted throughout New York City as mayor, which targeted black and brown residents and was later determined to have been used in unconstitutional manners by law enforcement.
