Micheal Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York City, is known for his political flip-flopping and was not at all a President Trump supporter.
They’ve no doubt run in the same New York circles for years. But Bloomberg has in the past been very critical of Trump.
Despite his disagreements with the President and conservatives in general, Bloomberg has a very stern admonition for those who are not supporting the President in the past. Basically this is our guy now and we need to support him.
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said that whether they like him or not, Americans need to support President Donald Trump to help the nation succeed.
“Let’s just all hope Donald Trump is a good president of the United States. We need this country to be run well,” Bloomberg said Wednesday on ‘The View’. “We have to make it work. You have an election. When someone wins, we have to get behind them.”
Bloomberg said America succeeds because Americans have traditionally made the transition from the divisiveness that goes with elections to the unity needed for government.
“In other countries, they try to tear down the government. They try to have a revolution,” he said.
“You can protest and you can elect other officials. You can write letters, make phone calls, and can carry signs.” Bloomberg said. “But in the end, we’re a democracy. The public has spoken — whether you like the results or not.”
I love how they’re trying to put him on par with the President, even though he was only a mayor.
Yes, it was New York City, but it’s the difference between 8.53 million and over 300 million. Big difference.
Also of note is the fact that they are saying we shouldn’t read too much into the Democratic loss in the Georgia special election. You know that if the Democrat had won it would have been “the end of the Republican Party as we know it.”
He’s probably right, it was probably a local issue. Let’s just remember this the next time they’re spelling death for Republicans, to “not read too much into it.”
One more thing we can appreciate, after the most important one, about his saying ‘we need to get behind the president’, is that he didn’t let Behar get by with her “resistance” talk. She said something about “resisting” and he mentioned several things that a person in American can actually do if they disagree with a politician. Vote, run for office, etc. I fear that this vague “resistance” that they’re getting everyone to sign onto is going to be defined at a later date to be something that many wouldn’t agree to now.
The former mayor is right though, supporting the President who’s doing the good things now would be the best option, but ya’ know, that would require some appreciation for a conservative, which isn’t something that liberals are very good at.
Bloomberg said Trump “had a message” that gave him “free advertising.”
But Bloomberg carped at Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan.
“I don’t know what the ‘again’ means. We’re better today that we’ve ever been,” he said.
Bloomberg made a similar comment Tuesday night during an appearance on CNN.
“Hilary never got a real message out,” Bloomberg told Anderson Cooper.
“It was don’t vote for that guy and the gender issue. Whereas Donald had us saying ‘Make America Great Again.’ I don’t know what again means. But America — that’s patriotic. And great, that’s a good word. I thought, it’s not quite that simple, but we do live in a world of 140 characters, and slogans matter.”
