8:01 pm
defeat donald trump and rebuild america kristen salumi. mike bloomberg the party affiliation has changed since he was a republican mayor of new york but his opposition to donald trump has been consistent trump says he wants to run the nation like he's running his business god help us the 77 year old billionaire has funneled millions of dollars of his personal fortune into progressive causes like gun control and climate change but is considered a moderate and were he to run as a democrat a potential threat to former vice president joe biden were he fits sort of an even keeled even tempered political leader with a track record of getting things done in the city of new york with the specially with 2 you can on the key issues economic development and think things of that sort which has a certain amount of appeal to more moderate. mainstream type democratic voters
8:02 pm
bloomberg has expressed his dissatisfaction with the current field of democrats suggesting some are too far to the left to beat the president who shrugged off speculation the former mayor would enter the race little michael will. spend a lot of money michael bloomberg made his fortune here to help lead the financial information a media company the co-founder he's the richest man in new york with far exceeding president trump's but among some democrats that could be a liability what we need is a dynamic democracy particularly among the party base not billionaire who just started a walk to run for president of the united states while bloomberg may be targeting white suburban voters who went for trump in 2016 he recently apologized for a policy. that put him at odds with the minority community called stop and frisk many saw this police tactic as a form of racism and harassment. i got something important wrong i got
8:03 pm
something important really wrong i didn't understand that back them the full impact that stocks were having on the black and latino communities an apparent recognition of the need to unify the opposition and a late apology that appears aimed at smoothing the way for a late entry in the race kristen salumi al-jazeera new york. let's go to john henry live in washington d.c. john there is so much about that this that is so intriguing and the timing is interesting here he's entering this race off the democrats have been slugging it out what does a do to the democratic field who has the most to fear. well that's true stan conceivably this race could come down to 2 aging white billionaires from new york and how much more democratic could that be. this really does throw a monkey wrench into the race for the democrats and for president trump after all
8:04 pm
bloomberg is very like trump in terms of age demographics even where he's from he is a billionaire he's got about $50000000000.00 he ranks 11th on the forbes list of the wealthiest people that compares to trumpet about $200.00 and what is it $93.00 i think it is. with about $3000000000.00 those 2 men know each other and they have have been fighting for years over various things that bloomberg is a moderate and that puts him straight in the competition with people like joe biden and the fact that he's in the race suggest dissatisfaction among democrats with who they've got i think by now a lot of democrats not the joe biden would have run away with the democratic nomination process that he would be leading ahead in polls even though we haven't held any elections yet and bloomberg is entering at a time where it's just really a couple of months until february 3rd which is when the iowa caucuses begin that is
8:05 pm
the 1st primary and he's got a lot of catching up to do and he's already spent $30000000.00 in an initial traunch of advertisements for this race but he has also ticked off the competition bernie sanders was mentioned in that story he tweeted out a couple days ago. i'm disgusted by the idea that michael bloomberg or any billionaire thinks they can circumvent the political process and spend millions of dollars to buy elections and then there's a lizabeth war and also on the left she says i understand rich people have more issues in the rest of us but they don't get a bigger share of democracy. so this is really a fight for the center in the democratic party bloomberg is strong on gun controls immigration climate change but his positions aren't terribly radical it's really anything could happen at this stage in this race but it's a sign of the dissatisfaction with the current field that he's there. john thank you for join hands on live there from washington d.c. . polls of closing guinea-bissau us presidential election many are hoping that
