Clash of the Titans: Bloomberg vs. Trump. Who has a chance to win?
Former billionaire and mayor of New York Michael Bloomberg will take part in the 2020 presidential campaign. The American philanthropist will fight for victory to become the leader of the US Democratic Party.
The businessman’s political strategists said Bloomberg’s main goal was to defeat incumbent President Donald Trump and unite Democrats and Republicans against him. According to the entrepreneur, there should not be another four years of reckless and unethical actions on the part of the head of state.
Actual Party Candidates
According to a poll for a billionaire, 4% of participants in democratic primaries are ready to vote and 31% are ready to vote for former Vice President Joe Biden, 20% will vote for Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and 18% for Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.
The billionaire himself believes that experience in business and politics will help him to defeat Trump. Bloomberg is essentially a story about his achievements as mayor of New York from 2002 to 2013, as well as in the field of charity.
The businessman planned several key areas of his program, among them the foreground is healthcare and the environment. In healthcare, Bloomberg advocates maintaining and improving the current health insurance system. He criticizes the plan “Free medical care for all,” because he believes that he will bankrupt the United States soon.
Critical Look at Billionaire Politics
Despite the fact that political experts positively assess Bloomberg’s administration, they do not deny the presence of weaknesses. Among his successes can be considered that he strengthened control over the carrying of weapons, lobbied for the legalization of gay marriage in the city and eased the rules for immigrants.
The points for which the businessman was criticized include unsuccessful reform of urban education, support for the Stop and Search practice, a secret study of the Muslim community, and sexist statements.
The entrepreneur has a serious advantage to be a billionaire. It is still unknown how much of the fortune of $ 54.7 billion the businessman is going to spend on his campaign. He said that he would allocate $ 100 million only for advertising to discredit Trump.
Analysts believe that Bloomberg should not bet on a conflict with Trump. It is better for him to identify himself as a candidate who will unite by a disparate state.
