Trump says Bloomberg 'doesn't have the magic'

President Donald Trump on Friday ridiculed former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg - who sources say, is strongly considering entering the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

(SOUNDBITE)(English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING: β€œSo I’ve known Michael Bloomberg for a long time.

You go back early on, he said a lot of great things about Trump.

But I know Michael.

He became just a nothing.

He was really a nothing.

He's not going to do well but I think he's going to hurt Biden, actually.

But he doesn't have the magic to do well.

Little Michael will fail.

He'll spend a lot of money.

He's got some really big issues.

He's got some personal problems and he's got a lot of other problems. But I know Michael Bloomberg fairly well - not too well, fairly well, well enough.

He will not do very well.

And if he did I'd be happy.

There is nobody I’d rather run against than Lil’ Michael - that I can tell you." 77-year-old Bloomberg is expected to file paperwork this week to run in the primary in Alabama.

Sources say THAT would keep the billionaire businessman's options open for a possible White House bid.
