Michael Bloomberg Fends Off Old Controversy, Trump Insults: The Rundown

Michael Bloomberg Fends Off Old Controversy, Trump Insults: The Rundown

"I am proud to stand with him in this race, and work with him when he is in the White House to keep our communities safe", McBath said in a statement that emphasized Bloomberg's advocacy on gun control.

Audio of @MikeBloomberg's 2015 @AspenInstitute speech where he explains that "you can just Xerox (copy)" the description of male, minorities 16-25 and hand to cops.

Trump also seemed to take aim at the backlash Bloomberg has recently faced over his controversial "stop and frisk" policing policy, despite the President supporting the policy himself.

He added: "Put those cops where the crime is, which is in the minority neighbourhoods".

What Bloomberg did as mayor amounted to a police occupation of minority neighborhoods, a terroristic pressure campaign, with little evidence that it was accomplishing the goal of sustained, long-term crime reduction. That's despite the fact that Trump has and continues to be a strong supporter of stop-and-frisk policing policies. He knew that. They were the collateral damage in his crusade, black and brown bodies up against walls and down on the ground, groped in the middle of the city by odd men with guns, a vast expanse of human psychological wreckage about which he couldn't care less. Last week, the Daily Beast found the Bloomberg campaign contracted a company called Tribe to pay micro-influencers - accounts with more than 1,000 followers but fewer than 100,000 - $150 per post to create original content "that tells us why Mike Bloomberg is the electable candidate who can rise above the fray, work across the aisle so all Americans feel heard and respected". During his tenure, use of the practice increased sevenfold.

While Bloomberg, during his time as mayor, credited "stop and frisk" with the declining crime rate in NY, crime continued to drop after the NYPD discontinued the policy.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has long held an overwhelming advantage with African Americans, pointing to their support as a firewall that would provide him with a much-needed primary win in SC at the end of the month.

CDC: Coronavirus test kits shipped across U.S. are faulty
The Southern Nevada Health District confirmed this on Wednesday and said it is looking into the possible 'performance issues. The other confirmed cases in the United States are in California, Arizona, Washington state, Illinois , and MA .

"It all started back when there was a lot of pressure on banks to make loans to everyone", Bloomberg, now a Democratic presidential candidate, said at a forum hosted by Georgetown University in September 2008.

In another tweet, the president offered something of a backhanded compliment to Bloomberg, writing that he could beat Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

On Thursday, Democratic rival Elizabeth Warren criticized Bloomberg for suggesting the end of redlining caused the crash.

Two very mature men running for president.

Bloomberg focused the bulk of his statement about the audio on Trump, arguing the president's attack "reflects his fear over the growing strength of my campaign".

Trump's campaign did not immediately respond to Newsweek's request for comment. Trump deleted that tweet, then posted another one, insulting Bloomberg for his stature and golf swing, and wittingly or unwittingly retweeting the #BloombergIsRacist hashtag. (Bloomberg is 5 foot 7, according to his medical records).

Trump "is a pathological liar who lies about everything: his fake hair, his obesity, and his spray-on tan", Bloomberg campaign spokesperson Julie Wood said in a statement.
