Trump Accuses ‘Mini Mike’ Bloomberg of ‘Illegally Buying’ Democratic Nomination


President Trump accused billionaire Mike Bloomberg in a tweet of trying to “illegally” buy the Democratic nomination, claiming he is using his wealth as a “payoff” in buying support from his endorsers.

“What Mini Mike is doing is nothing less than a large scale illegal campaign contribution. He is ‘spreading’ money all over the place, only to have recipients of his cash payments, many former opponents, happily joining or supporting his campaign. Isn’t that called a payoff?” Trump tweeted Tuesday afternoon.

“Mini is illegally buying the Democrat Nomination,” Trump added, repeating his claim on how the Democratic Party is trying to take the election away from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) again. “They are taking it away from Bernie again. Mini Mike, Major Party Nominations are not for sale! Good luck in the debate tomorrow night and remember, no standing on boxes!”
