Hey, Michael Bloomberg, no one wants you to run for president

It takes another New York billionaire to beat Trump? Ex-mayor Michael Bloomberg preparing to run as Democrat in 2020

If the DNC primary did not feature a stark contrast of ideology, between the more moderate Biden campaign and the progressive Sanders and Warren campaigns, Bloomberg would have most likely sat out of the 2020 primary.

In Arkansas, another Super Tuesday state, a Democratic Party spokesperson said a person representing a "mystery candidate" reached out Thursday afternoon asking about the requirements to join the ballot.

"But I am clear-eyed about the difficulty of winning the Democratic nomination in such a crowded field", he added.

"There is not any constituency for Michael Bloomberg that's not already accepted by one of those candidates that are running", explained Charles Chamberlain, seat of this Vermont-based innovative group Democracy for America.

"Little Michael will fail", Trump told reporters at the White House, apparently re-upping his demeaning nickname of the multibillionaire.

"When people look at the White House and see this multi-millionaire messing up so many things", the Minnesota senator told CNN's State of the Union, "I don't think they think, 'Oh, we need someone richer.' I think you have to earn votes, not buy them".

A total of 17 candidates are now vying to take on President Trump.

"I have no problem with him in the race", Biden said.

"It is nearly like he is running since this billionaire would like to prevent Elizabeth Warren", Brad Bannon, a Democratic Party strategist who advises innovative groups and labor unions", said of Bloomberg.

The trophy tour kicked off in Gauteng on Thursday with the Bok-branded bus travelling through parts of Pretoria, Johannesburg and Soweto.

Because of this, Bloomberg will bypass early competitions like the February 3 caucus in Iowa and highlight later voting nations where his rivals won't have as large an organizing edge, beginning with the Super Tuesday primaries in 15 countries such as Alabama on March 3.

Mr Bloomberg could still opt against a run, even preliminary steps towards a campaign could damage Mr Bidens challenge.

But Biden's struggles in recent months have given Bloomberg new optimism that there is space for him in the campaign.

Mr Bloomberg's moves come as the Democratic race enters a crucial phase. But both are viewed by some Democrats as too liberal to win in a general election faceoff with Trump.

The billionaire media mogul, who has not formally confirmed his candidacy, filed the documents Friday to meet the deadline for submitting Alabama applications.

Bloomberg plunged his efforts - and his money - into gun control advocacy and climate change initiatives.

Among those Bloomberg has reached out to is Tom Vilsack, the former Iowa governor who remains popular in the state.

Bloomberg has seriously explored running for president at least three times - in 2008 and 2016 as an independent, and earlier this year as a Democrat - but in every case he has opted against mounting a campaign.
