Bloomberg Joins Obama And Biden At DNC To Endorse Hillary Clinton

posted on July 26, 2016

New York City billionaire and shrill anti-NRA activist Michael Bloomberg is scheduled to endorse Hillary Clinton—one of the most anti-gun presidential candidates ever—at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia Wednesday night. A close adviser, Stu Loeser, says this is clear sign of Bloomberg’s dismay at the Republican nomination of Donald Trump, even though he’s never had an especially warm relationship with Clinton.

Bloomberg has spent the past few years, and millions of dollars, battling the National Rifle Association and pushing for more restrictive gun-control legislation nationwide. The former Democrat (then Republican mayor of New York City, and now Independent) had also recently considered his own run at the White House.

However, Bloomberg decided his campaign could split the Democratic vote and give Trump an easier path to the presidency. Bloomberg is expected to speak in a prime time slot, followed by President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.
