Donald Trump Jr. went after Mike Bloomberg for having fake endorsements the same day his father also attacked the former New York City mayor on Twitter.
“Good for everyone to see the Bloomberg playbook,” Trump Jr. said Thursday on Twitter, sharing a thread with his followers about how Bloomberg buys support and silences critics. “Being willing and able to spend billions can surely circumvent a lot of criticism and buy you a lot of phony endorsements.”
The thread Trump Jr. shared from Blake Zeff accused Bloomberg of “using his fortune to fundamentally alter & manipulate U.S. politics.” Zeff pointed out in his Twitter thread that the former mayor spent millions on ads, catered food at events, and donations, which led to endorsements.
President Trump targeted the former New York City mayor Thursday on Twitter, calling him a “mass of dead energy.” “Mini Mike is a 5’4” mass of dead energy who does not want to be on the debate stage with these professional politicians,” he said. “No boxes please. He hates Crazy Bernie and will, with enough money, possibly stop him. Bernie’s people will go nuts!”
