Impact of Michael Bloomberg’s late entry into the 2020 race Impact of Michael Bloomberg’s late entry into the 2020 racePresidential candidate, Michael Bloomberg, is addressing why he decided to make a late start in the 2020 race exclusive interview CBS This Morning, co-host Gayle King sat down with the billionaire is in the race to get through, because we would have split the votes between September and then I watched all the candidates and I just thought to myself. Donald Trump would eat him up. If you think all of the candidates who are running today, he would eat them up. I think that I would why would he not be? I don’t know I’m thinking with friends like you who needs enemies. You are friendly with other great TV presenters in the morning. Well, I’m not trying to take his job, he that he doesn’t have the job of President United States, and neither do I at the moment the person that has it is Donald Trump, I’m trying to take away the job from Donald Trump. Nobody saying, thank God, he’s getting it. Thank God now I know I’m going to vote for, or I hear what the hell is. He thinking is this a big ego stroked both of those the second one. I have the same rights as anybody else. Yes, I guess it takes an ego to think that you could do the job. I have 12 years of experience in City Hall and I think it could go back today and ask most people about those twelve years. They would say that did not me, but the team that I put together make an enormous difference in New York, City and New York City benefited from it and continues to benefit from it. Today from what we did, then the next debate is December and Cory. Booker said that it could possibly be on that debates day. Color there would be more billionaires in the race in black people. Is that a problem to you endorse me? A number X and I endorse Cory Booker number times he’s very well-spoken. He’S got some good ideas. It would be better the more diverse any group is, but the public is out there picking and choosing and narrowing down this field. The truth of the matter is you had a lot of diversity in the candidates, some of home, I’m very confident why they aren’t there as you narrowed it down. You have to talk to other people who are experts. I don’t know somebody maybe but lots of people. Can I tell you there was no reason if you wanted to enter and run for president and states. You could have done that, but don’t complain to me that you’re not in the race, it was up to you and I thought there was a lot of diversity. A group of democratic, aspirins and tree is not a barrier. There’S two minority candidates in this race. Look, for example, at the DNC debate, qualification requirements, the Grassroots fundraising requirement, typically favors, potentially white candidates. I mean, if you look at Grassroots donor far as fundraising, helps you get on an errand run ads and get your name out there and increase your pulling. That also is a requirement for the DNC debates. There are barriers to that as well. I spoke with a Booker donor who tried to start four pack for him but struggled to raise money, and he said he was hearing from some donors, a sense that black candidates can’t beat Donald Trump. So well, Michael Bloomberg has a point. You know the field was diverse and number of candidates dropped out. It seems that she’s not win. The caucus. Booker is pretty much out of make or break moment right now. How does he sort of get ahead of this point and gain any traction? Absolutely y’all thought that what happened was the party moved extremely to the left after Hillary AOC was a new party she’s, a wonderful person widest number of Voters across the state, both Anne Burrell and suburban and urban areas, and so, as he’s been in the state this Week on an eighth day, bus tour – he has been making the case that he’s the one that can unify the party that he has the widest appeal push back. So it’s been a pretty good bus tour for him. He’S gotten a lot of positive to have coverage in and support out of that, and I report it – and I want to quote here on your team – is laser focused on the viability threshold in the Cross? Iowa there’s about 1,700 of those and the more you can be viable in the more Precinct caucuses. The more likely you’re able to get delegates at the end of the day and Biden again feels Titans team feels Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg talked with “CBS This Morning” co-host Gayle King why he decided to enter into the 2020 campaign. Alexandra Jaffe, a national political reporter for The Associated Press, joined CBSN to discuss that plus other developments in the race.
