Trump says Bloomberg 'doesn't have the magic'

U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday responded to reports that former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg is strongly considering entering the Democratic presidential nomination.

"He's not going to do well, but I think he's going to hurt Biden actually.

But he doesn't have the magic to do well," Trump told reporters outside of the White House.

Jillian Kitchener has more.

President Donald Trump on Friday ridiculed former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg - who sources say, is strongly considering entering the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

(SOUNDBITE)(English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING: “So I’ve known Michael Bloomberg for a long time.

You go back early on, he said a lot of great things about Trump.

But I know Michael.

He became just a nothing.

He was really a nothing.

He's not going to do well but I think he's going to hurt Biden, actually.

But he doesn't have the magic to do well.

Little Michael will fail.

He'll spend a lot of money.

He's got some really big issues.

He's got some personal problems and he's got a lot of other problems. But I know Michael Bloomberg fairly well - not too well, fairly well, well enough.

He will not do very well.

And if he did I'd be happy.

There is nobody I’d rather run against than Lil’ Michael - that I can tell you." 77-year-old Bloomberg is expected to file paperwork this week to run in the primary in Alabama.

Sources say THAT would keep the billionaire businessman's options open for a possible White House bid.
