Former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg blasted Donald Trump as a “dangerous demagogue” during his speech at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night. He had the harshest words against the Republican nominee so far and brought the crowd to their feet when he called Trump out as a “con.”
Trump says he wants to run the nation like he’s running his business? God help us! I’m a New yorker and I know a con when I see one!
After ripping his policies and business practices, Bloomberg smacked Trump down for his hypocrisy and the crowd erupted in cheers once again.
Truth be told, the richest thing about Donald Trump is his hypocrisy.
He wants you to believe that we can solve our biggest problems by deporting Mexicans and shutting out Muslims. He wants you to believe that erecting trade barriers will bring back good jobs. He’s wrong on both counts. We can only solve our biggest problems if we come together and embrace the freedoms that our founding fathers established right here in Philadelphia.
You can watch Bloomberg shred Trump and his hypocrisy here:
