According to a new report from DailyMail, Wall street sources claim 2020 candidate Michael Bloomberg is now willing to spend up to $2 billion dollars to defeat President Trump.
The NY Times had previously reported that Bloomberg was willing to spend $1 billion to defeat Trump.
To put this staggering amount in perspective, per the NY Post, Hillary Clinton and her supporters spent a record $1.2 billion for her losing presidential campaign — twice as much as the winner, Donald Trump, according to the latest records.
DailyMail reports Michael Bloomberg is willing to spend up to $2 billion to defeat President Trump, Wall Street sources have claimed.
The eighth richest man in America has long resented Trump and Bloomberg’s contempt only grew after 2016 when he backed Hillary Clinton’s failed campaign.
Bloomberg, according to the Fox News report, will also throw the two billion behind whichever Democrat faces Trump in November should he fail to win the nomination.
The former New York mayor – worth an estimated $53 billion versus Trump’s $10 billion – has recently bought a Super Bowl commercial slot for $10 million.
In a sign that he will do anything in his power to stop Trump, Bloomberg’s 60 second slot will deliberately target the President, rather than promote Bloomberg’s credentials, during the big game.
‘The biggest point is getting under Trump’s skin,’ Bloomberg campaign spokesman Michael Frazier told The New York Times. ‘We have the means to raise a national campaign unlike any other candidate.’
