Donald Trump is slamming Michael Bloomberg’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton, speculating the former New York mayor cut a deal with the former secretary of state to get a job in any new Clinton administration.
“Personally, I think he made a deal with Hillary, where…he gets a job,” the Republican presidential nominee said in an interview airing Sunday on ABC News’ “This Week.”
Though not affiliated with either major political party, Bloomberg endorsed Clinton and spoke on the final night of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. In his speech, the billionaire media mogul called Trump “a dangerous demagogue” and criticized his business record.
“Trump says he wants to run the nation like he’s run his business. God help us,” Bloomberg said.
But speaking with ABC host George Stephanopoulos, Trump criticized Bloomberg’s decision not to mount an independent run for president though he “wanted to run for president for probably as long as you’ve known him.”
“He never had the guts to do it. And now I see this guy up on stage saying negative things,” Trump said. “He knows nothing about me. He’s never been to my office. I don’t know him well.”
