The Nevada debate will be Bloomberg, the ex-mayor and media mogul, takes the stage. He entered the race in late November and has since spent hundreds of millions of dollars from his own pockets on TV ads, which no doubt contributed to his surge in the polls. However, he won’t be on the Nevada ballot.
President Donald Trump recently took aim at Bloomberg’s candidacy on social media. “Is corrupt Bloomberg News going to say what a pathetic debater Mini Mike is, that he doesn’t respect our great farmers, or that he has violated campaign finance laws at the highest and most sinister level with “payoffs” all over the place?” he wrote.
Bloomberg responded, “impeached President says what?”
