The former mayor of New York City and a man that once called the president a “con” and “dangerous demagogue” Michael Bloomberg made some comments recently that have stunned a lot of people…
On Wednesday during an appearance on “The View” Bloomberg suggested that Americans should get behind Trump and that his opponents should focus less on resistance and more on the next presidential election. The Huffington Post reports:
Bloomberg also explained that, although he did not vote for Trump, he wanted to avoid repeating the “mistake” that he says Sen. Mitch McConnell made as minority leader in President Barack Obama’s administration. In 2010, McConnell told The National Journal that the “single most important thing” for Republicans to achieve would be to make Obama a “one-term president.”
“I thought, that’s our country. That’s my kids and my grandkids,” Bloomberg said of McConnell on Wednesday. “We have to make it work. You have an election, whoever wins, then we have to get behind and work.”
He illustrated his point by comparing America with other countries where, according to Bloomberg, people will try to “tear down the government” and “have a revolution” if they lose an election.
“We should sit back and say, ‘OK, four years from now, how do I get my person, my man or my woman, elected?’” he suggested, which elicited cheers from the audience.
But when asked by host Joy Behar about the “strong resistance” from people pushing back against Trump’s policies, Bloomberg defended their right to protest and encouraged people to speak out against the administration.
“If you disagree, you should go out there. You can protest. You can elect other officials, write letters, make phone calls,” he said. “But in the end, the public has spoken, whether you like the results or not.”
I think the message Bloomberg is sending is great. Bloomberg is saying hey look you may not like the guy get involved, and work toward a platform in 2020 for the American people.
Do you agree with Bloomberg?
