Trump bashes Bloomberg; Dem’s campaign calls Trump a `liar’

Bloomberg, a late entry to the Democratic competition to take on Republican President Donald Trump in November, has pledged not to take any donations and finance his campaign by dipping into his estimated $60 billion U.S. fortune.

"I think he's a communist". You know, now he wants a box for the debates, to stand on. Okay, it's okay, there's nothing wrong. "Does that mean everyone else gets a box?", he asked.

Trump is "lying", Bloomberg campaign spokeswoman Julie Wood said. "Why should he be entitled to that?"

Hopefully, Bloomberg will get a reality check when he's actually on a ballot.

But Trump did not stop there.

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) dropped a requirement for a certain number of donors, leaving only a polling threshold to qualify for debates. Bloomberg, a former New York City mayor, has now not but hit the polling marks, however he'll have till February 18, the day prior to the debate, to take action - a prospect that pleases some competitors and incenses others.

Democratic presidential candidates Michael Bloomberg and Tom Steyer spent a total of $ 340 million in the last quarter of 2019, according to the Federal Election Commission (FEC), which was released on Friday.

Julián Castro and Cory Booker, in particular, have complained that the DNC's rules unfairly targeted minority candidates because even grassroots donor bases are whiter than the Democratic electorate. "I would love it", said Trump. So far, Bloomberg has collected one national poll that shows him above 10% support. "They are doing it to Bernie again, 2016", Trump wrote in one tweet.

Bloomberg, who is worth more than $59 billion, would have to pay more in taxes under his plan. On Sunday night, Bloomberg and Trump will face off in ads airing during the Super Bowl.

Bloomberg, who is bypassing the first four nominating states to compete in the states holding primaries in early March, only had 150 staffers on his campaign through December 31, but now employs 1,000 people on his campaign across 35 states. The rule had prevented former New York Mayor and billionaire media mogul Bloomberg from joining the previous forums.

Relaxing rules that govern debates virtually surely will go away some former applicants unsatisfied.

Early Sunday morning, Trump tweeted that Bloomberg "is going nowhere, just wasting his money, but he is getting the DNC to rig the election against Crazy Bernie, something they wouldn't do for @CoryBooker and others". He added, "I stand twice as tall as he does on the stage".

But how to treat him on the debate stage is a tricky proposition for the campaigns.

He continued: "And the question is, whether this is a move that Mike's excited about it or whether Mike's indifferent to or even negative towards".
