Michael Bloomberg Gives Trump A 55% Shot At Reelection

Michael Bloomberg is no big fan of fellow billionaire Donald Trump. But still, the former New York mayor who has considered in the past a presidential run of his own, believes Trump may remain in the White House for longer than many believe.

Trump, according to Bloomberg, stands a 55 percent chance of getting reelected in 2020. And the reason has little to do with Trump’s qualities.

In an interview with Frank Bruni at the New York Times, Bloomberg, an independent, placed the blame on the Democrats who still can’t get their act together. “Hillary said, ‘Vote for me because I’m a woman and the other guy’s bad,’ ” Bloomberg said, noting that Democrats are still struggling to find their message. “They’ll step on each other and re-elect Donald Trump,” he predicted.

In the 2016 campaign, Bloomberg endorsed Clinton and spoke out forcefully against the election of Trump.
