Recently announced Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg’s campaign explained their decision to jump into the 2020 General Election this week; saying Donald Trump is currently on a “path to victory” next November.
“Mike is getting in this race because he thinks that Donald Trump is an existential crisis and he thinks he’s on a path to victory and he’s getting in to alter that dynamic,” campaign manager Kevin Sheekey told CNN.

“That’s the whole general election. And right now Donald Trump is winning, he is winning that election. It’s very tough for people who live in New York or California to understand that, but that is what’s happening,” Sheekey said.

‘MONEY BAGS’: Warren Blasts Bloomberg, Brags She’s Taken 85,000 ‘Selfies’ Since Campaign Launch
Senator Elizabeth Warren ripped New York billionaire Michael Bloomberg Monday; accusing the former Big Apple Mayor of using “bags of money” to try and purchase the 2020 Democratic primary.
“Michael Bloomberg may think he doesn’t need people to win this election—he just needs bags of money. He’s wrong. That’s why I’m investing in meeting thousands of voters, taking over 85,000 selfies, and building a grassroots movement that will fight for big, structural change,” said Warren.

“America was founded on principles of liberty and built on the backs of enslaved people. It is time for our government to face this truth. Time for America to have a full-blown national conversation about reparations,” said the Senator in Atlanta last week.

Warren also doubled-down on the Democrats’ year-long claim that Stacey Abrams is the rightful governor of Georgia; saying the midterm elections reveal how “broken” America’s “democracy” has become.
“Right now, our democracy is broken. How do I know? Because Brian Kemp is sitting in @StaceyAbrams’ chair. And we are all grateful to Stacey for what she’s doing to make sure that never happens again in this country,” posted Warren on social media.
AOC VS AMAZON: Cortez Says Amazon Can Return to NYC if they ‘Consult’ Local Communities
Embattled Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez opened the door for Amazon to return to the Big Apple this week; saying the technology giant must “consult” local communities that would be impacted by the new headquarters.
“One of the most concerning aspects in what happened with the deal previously is you have all of these folks in Long Island City, in Sunnyside, in Woodside and all the way out to Jackson Heights, that will be impacted by this and they were not consulted,” said Cortez at her New York City office Monday.
“What [Ocasio-Cortez] was vocal about was the process by which it happened,” her Chief of Staff told Bloomberg TV. “The deal was sort of sprung on the community without any input and there’s a real cost whenever tech companies come in without community input, rents go up, people get evicted, there’s an actual human cost that is associated with Amazon coming in.”
Cortez found herself in hot-water among New Yorkers after her fiery rhetoric and fierce opposition forced Amazon to abandon their plans to relocate to the Big Apple; effectively killing 25,000 new jobs and upwards of $27 billion in tax revenue.
