Trump Lashes Out at ‘Mini Mike Bloomberg’ After Fox News Airs Former New York Mayor’s Ad

President Donald Trump has lashed out at Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg on Twitter. The insulting comments come after Fox News showed an attack ad from the Bloomberg campaign that criticized Trump’s approach to the military.

The ad appeared on Fox & Friends, a morning show that Trump frequently watches. The same show also hosted Bloomberg’s campaign manager Kevin Sheekey on Thursday.

“Mini Mike Bloomberg is playing poker with his foolhardy and unsuspecting Democrat rivals,” Trump tweeted. “He says that if he loses (he really means when!) in the primaries, he will spend money helping whoever the Democrat nominee is.”

“By doing this, he figures, they won’t hit him as hard during his hopeless ‘presidential’ campaign,” Trump said. “They will remain silent! The fact is, when Mini losses, he will be spending very little of his money on these ‘clowns’ because he will consider himself to be the biggest clown of them all – and he will be right!”

Far from being ‘hopeless’, a new poll shows Bloomberg handily beating Trump in a theoretical head-to-head match-up. The CNN poll shows Bloomberg defeating the President by 52% to 43% – the same margin as former Vice President Joe Biden.
