2020 Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg admitted Thursday morning that the “real winner” of Wednesday’s night’s Democratic debate was President Donald Trump.
“So how was your night last night?” the former NYC mayor asked the crowd in Salt Lake City.
“Look, the real winner of the debate last night was Donald Trump. Because I worry that we may be on the way to nominating someone who cannot win in November,” Bloomberg said. “I worry we may well be on the way to nominating somebody who cannot win in November, and if we choose a candidate who appeals to a small base like Senator Sanders, it will be a fatal error.”
“We need Democrats and independents and Republicans to win,” he said. “And that was the coalition that propelled Democrats to success in the midterms and it is the coalition that we need to win in November.”
