Bloomberg and Trump Clash

Bloomberg and Trump Clash

( – President Trump’s now-deleted tweet caused a firestorm on the social media platform the other day.

Trump tweeted an old video of Michael Bloomberg defending his controversial “stop-and-frisk” policy that disproportionately targeted minorities. He added to the video sayings “WOW, BLOOMBERG IS A TOTAL RACIST”

The hashtag #BloombergIsRacist trended on Twitter as a second video also surfaced from a different interview.

Bloomberg has consistently defended his position on the policy ever since he resigned as mayor in 2013. Of course, only a few days after announcing his presidential candidacy he did apologize for it. Bloomberg said he should have apologized “faster and sooner.”

That’s odd, given that he had about six years to ponder his racist actions without owning up to them.
