Bloomberg: Trump ‘Is a Risky, Reckless Choice’ For President

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Wednesday night urged his fellow independents to vote for Hillary Clinton because Donald Trump is a “dangerous demagogue.”

“The bottom line is Trump is a risky, reckless and radical choice — and we can’t afford to make that choice,” Bloomberg told delegates at the Democratic National Convention. “There are times when I disagree with Hillary Clinton, but let me tell you, whatever our disagreements may be, I’ve come here to say we must put them aside for the good of our country.”

Newsmax noted that Bloomberg, a billionaire who previously registered as a Democrat as well as a Republican, ridiculed Trump’s business record. He cited the “thousands of lawsuits, and angry stockholders and contractors who feel cheated, and disillusioned customers who feel they’ve been ripped off.”

“Trump says he wants to run the nation like he’s running his business? God help us,” said Bloomberg, whose wealth reportedly far exceeds that of the GOP candidate. “I’m a New Yorker, and I know a con when I see one.”

Bloomberg called Clinton “the right choice and the responsible choice in this election,” adding: “No matter what you may think about her politics or her record, Hillary Clinton understands that this is not reality television — this is reality.” The comment was a reference to Trump having hosted “The Apprentice.”

Bloomberg considered running for president as an independent this year, before determining he would likely fail in a three-candidate contest.
