Trump Removes Tweet Calling Mike Bloomberg Racist After Audio Leaks Of Him Defending Stop And Frisk Policy

Published

on

President Trump decided to remove a tweet labeling 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg a racist after old audio resurfaced of the former New York City mayor defending the stop-and-frisky policy.

The audio was released on Monday and came from a 2015 speaking event at the Aspen Institute in Colorado. The audio features Bloomberg openly admitting the policy disproportionately affected minorities, but went on to defend its use anyway.

Check out the details from The Washington Examiner:

The president retweeted a clip of the audio the next day and captioned it, “WOW, BLOOMBERG IS A TOTAL RACIST!” He deleted the tweet a short time later.

In 2016, then-candidate Trump similarly praised the policy and called for its implementation nationwide.

“I would do stop and frisk. I think you have to. We did it in New York, it worked incredibly well, and you have to be proactive and, you know, you really help people sort of change their mind automatically,” he said in the interview with Fox News.

Trump tweeted again about Bloomberg on Tuesday, saying, “Mini Mike is a short ball (very) hitter. Tiny club head speed. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!” His comment was in response to a photo showing him and the former mayor on the golf course.

Bloomberg says in the leaked audio, “Ninety-five percent of murders, murderers and murder victims, fit one M.O. You can just take a description, Xerox it, and pass it out to all the cops. They are male, minorities, 16 to 25.”

The former mayor went on to say, “And the way you get the guns out of the kids’ hands is to throw them up against the wall and frisk them. And then they start, ’Oh, I don’t want to get caught,’ so they don’t bring the gun. They still have a gun, but they leave it at home.”

Bloomberg, in typical liberal fashion, walked back these comments back in November before deciding to enter the 2020 presidential election.

The question now is whether or not these comments will hurt his chances of winning the election. It seems that since the Democratic Party is totally inconsistent when it comes to the application of the principles they espouse, the answer is probably not.

Whether or not “Mini-Mike” has an actual chance of nabbing the nomination at all is the question to be discussed.

Pete Buttigieg Believes In Less Government But Only About One Issue [Opinion]

Something a lot of Americans are passionate about…

The View‘s Meghan McCain recently sought a clearer answer from Mayor Pete Buttigieg about his position on late-term abortion. She asked him where he drew the line and whether his position included a baby actually being born: Buttigieg: “We live in a country where it is extremely important that no one person should have to be subject to some other person’s interpretation of their own religion.” I wondered whether Mayor Pete thought religious freedom equally applied to say, Jack Phillips’ right not to be forced to create a custom cake for a gay wedding. Sure enough I found a piece in the Washington Free Beacon, entitled, “Mayor Pete Will Make you Bake the Cake.” McCain pressed again, and the Mayor of South Bend answered with rhetoric that sounded like a limited government conservative: Buttigieg: “My point is that it shouldn’t be up to the government official to draw the line. It should be up the woman who is confronted with that choice.” McCain: “So if a woman wanted to invoke infanticide after a baby is born, you’d be comfortable with that?” Buttigieg: “… I don’t know what to tell them morally about what they should do. I just know that I trust that her decision isn’t going to be any better, medically or morally . . . because the government is telling her to do it a certain way.” He gave an almost identical answer in a televised Town Hall with Chris Wallace. Candidate Buttigieg who is ordinarily so comfortable sermonizing to his Leftist flock couldn’t bring himself to say that it is immoral to kill a baby after it’s born. I’ve always found it perplexing that the Left’s strong support for Obamacare never included any of this faux passion for freedom and restraint of government when it comes to…

Bloomberg: ‘Black & Latino Males’ Don’t ‘Know How to Behave In the Workplace’ (Video)

This could be the video to end his campaign…

If Michael Bloomberg was running for president as a Republican, the mainstream media would literally force him to drop from the race after several cringeworthy videos resurfaced. For instance, just the other day the former mayor of New York City said elderly patients should be denied care past a certain age. He was then busted for completely mocking farmers, basically calling them rubes by saying he could personally “teach anyone” how to farm. He also allegedly told an employee to “kill” her baby. But this 2011 clip below may just be the one that ends “Mini Mike’s” 2020 hopes. From Fox News: While promoting a $127 million, three-year initiative to help minorities in the workplace in 2011, then-New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg declared that there’s “this enormous cohort of black and Latino males” who “don’t know how to behave in the workplace” and “don’t have any prospects.” […] Speaking to PBS in the 2011 interview, Bloomberg noted that he had donated $30 million from his foundation to Open Society Foundations, the network established by liberal billionaire financier Goerge Soros, toward the new plan to enhance employment among minorities.
