Экс-мэр Нью-Йорка Блумберг присоединился к президентской гонке 2020 года

Former new York mayor Michael Bloomberg on Friday, November 8, was included in the potential number of participants of the presidential race of 2020 from the Democratic party of the United States. Officially he has not announced his nomination, but sent the documents for registration as a candidate in the primaries in Alabama shortly before the expiry of the deadline.

At the moment, among the members of the Democratic party in the presidential race involved 17 politicians, including Bloomberg. Among them – the Senator from Vermont Bernie Sanders and former Vice President of the United States Joe Biden. The current mayor of new York bill de Blasio initially announced his intention to run for the presidency, but in September declined to participate in the race.

The current head of state Donald trump also intends to participate in the fight for the White house. In addition to trump, for the post of President from the Republican party claim the ex-Governor of South Carolina mark Sanford, the former Governor of Massachusetts William weld and former Congressman William Joseph Walsh.

According to the representative of Michael Bloomberg, he is skeptical about the opportunities available candidates to circumvent trump. Initially, the former mayor said he was not going to participate in the elections, scheduled for November 3, 2020.

Michael Bloomberg in 2002 assumed the post of mayor of new York, and subsequently was twice re-elected. It occupies the ninth place in the list of the richest people in the world by Forbes magazine.
