Trump, as we all are aware, is not known for paying out to support much of anything that doesn't benefit him personally (Trump finally now proposes a project to help women entrepreneurs, as a sop to his daughter, now that he can get others to foot the bill).


Bloomberg, by contrast, is putting up $200,000,000 to help other cities stand on their own:

I voted for him for mayor all three times, and wish I could have voted for him for POTUS.

Too late, he's too old to run the next time around. Funny how other countries can easily elect young presidents or women but America the leader of the new world can't get any young candidates or females as president. I blame Obama, he has soured the political landscape with his identity politics. Americans are afraid if they select another young person to be president there would be only social issues on the menu instead of solving real issues. Obama's last term was his best because he was handcuffed by Congress and the House once Pelosi & Co became irrelevant.

As much as Bloomberg annoyed me in his last 6 years of office with going full tilt left and creating a nanny state of NY he was a much better Mayor than what we have now. I voted for him twice but was totally turned off when he abandoned the Republican party that got him elected and strong-armed his way through the city council for a third term. He gave us the liberal agenda nightmare that we fund ourselves in now. Had he rode off into the sunset after his second term maybe he would have had a better shot at POTUS. However, middle America isn't going to help elect a Jewish POTUS. In many ways, I am kind of grateful that Bloomie did go full liberal because had he not had that third term and did run for POTUS I would have voted for him only to regret my vote down the line had he been elected.
