Saw this about Bloomberg from June 2016
"A healthy banking system that's going to take risks because that's what creates the jobs for everybody. And nobody's willing to say that," he said. "The trouble is, these campaigns in this day and age really are about slogans and not about issues anymore. And in this election you're going to see people are voting and they either love or hate, mostly hate both, but who you hate the least. That's what they're going to vote for. And they're not going to vote on issues."
Bloomberg also compared the rising progressive movement in the Democratic Party to the rise of the far right in Europe.
"The left is arising. The progressive movement is just as scary," he said. "Elizabeth Warren on one side. And whoever you want to pick on the Republicans on the right side?"
Bloomberg also added that he believed 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney could have done a better job as president than Obama, adding that his 2012 endorsement of the president was "backhanded." Bloomberg did not endorse Obama in 2008 when he ran against the late Sen. John McCain"
