Michael Bloomberg will face off against five other Democratic presidential candidates on the debate stage in Las Vegas tonight for the first time.
Bloomberg will participate in a Democratic presidential primary debate with five other candidates on Wednesday night: former Vice President Joe Biden; former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg; Sen. Amy Klobuchar; Sen. Bernie Sanders; and Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
Mike Bloomberg’s sudden climb up the polls has been fueled by an unprecedented gusher of cash, a self-funded, blank-check campaign build-up and blanket advertising designed to introduce the $64-billion man to a national electorate that mostly didn’t follow his 12-year tenure as the mayor of New York or his groundbreaking career as the founder of his eponymous financial services, data and media conglomerate, the Politico told.
Bloomberg has several business stakes in China, which translate into a sizeable amount of revenue for Bloomberg LP. And as The Washington Post reports, those holdings pair up nicely with his relatively soft — and sometimes even complimentary — takes on China’s CCP dictatorship.
In a business forum in Singapore last year, Bloomberg called China’s Vice President Wang Qishan “the most influential political figure in China and in the world” who has led China “through a period of extraordinary growth” . And when asked about ongoing pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, Bloomberg said he believed China’s President Xi Jinping “is not a dictator”.
Bloomberg said in an interview with PBS, “China is doing a lot. Yes, they’re still building a lot of coal-fired power plants……Yes, they are, but they’re now moving plants away from the cities. The Communist Party wants to stay in power in China, and they listen to the public. When the public says I can’t breathe the air, Xi Jinping is not a dictator; he has to satisfy his constituents or he’s not going to survive.”
The New York Magazine reports, it may be difficult to discern the logic of Bloomberg’s apologia for Xi. But it’s quite easy to posit a logical reason for Bloomberg to spew illogical apologies for the Communist Party: The billionaire has vast financial interests in China, and those interests have allegedly compromised his civic-minded endeavors in the past. In 2013, the New York Times reported that Bloomberg News had killed an investigation that had threatened to upset Chinese officials.
When Bloomberg first started his business, he was actually anti-communism, but as he wants more money, he started to kiss the ass of the Chinese Communist Party.
Last year hedge fund manager Kyle Bass sat down with General Robert Spalding to talk about his story.
General Spalding said, “Bloomberg did a fantastic article on Xi Jinping’s family when he took power, and how wealthy they had become, and Michael Bloomberg was warned, ‘If you don’t stop this, your Bloomberg terminals will not work in China anymore.’
Kyle Bass added, “In fact, they turned them off for a while. This is the (indiscernible) story.”
While many Chinese suffering from the coronavirus are fighting for democracy and the rule of law for the country’s future, Mike Bloomberg is regarded as an enemy of the Chinese nation.
More and more Chinese have been thankful to President Donald Trump who has been leading the fight against communism and the CCP dictatorship.
I want to say to Bloomberg: if you want to cooperate with the demons, you will also become a demon.
If Bloomberg would be the next president of the United States, it could be a disaster for the future of the world, not just for China’s democratic progress.
