Fiery Bloomberg Goes Off: 'The Richest Thing About Donald Trump Is His Hypocrisy'
At the Democratic National Convention tonight, Michael Bloomberg threw his support behind Hillary Clinton and launched a vicious barrage on Donald Trump.
"Throughout his career, Trump has left behind a well-documented record of bankruptcies, thousands of lawsuits, angry shareholders and contractors who feel cheated, and disillusioned customers who feel ripped off," Bloomberg said. "Trump says he wants to run the nation like he’s running his business. God help us."
Bloomberg said that Trump says he wants to punish manufacturers that move to Mexico or China, but the clothes he sells are made overseas in low-wage factories. He says he wants to put Americans back to work, but he games the U.S. visa system to hire temporary foreign workers at low wages. He says he wants to deport millions of illegal immigrants, but he has no problem hiring them.
"What’d I miss here?!" Bloomberg said. "Truth be told, the richest thing about Donald Trump is his hypocrisy."
He said he doesn't agree with many of Clinton's policies, but it's vitally important that Americans unite behind her to "defeat a dangerous demagogue."
"The bottom line is: Trump is a risky, reckless, and radical choice. And we can’t afford to make that choice!"
