In his pre-Super Bowl interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, President Donald Trump revealed which Democratic candidate he would most like to run against this year.
His answer? Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
“I would love to run against Bloomberg. I would love it,” Trump told Hannity.
The president has made his disdain for Bloomberg clear over the last several days, even mocking Bloomberg’s height during his interview with Hannity, calling the billionaire businessman “very little.”
“I just think of little. Now he wants a box for the debates to stand on. Okay, it’s okay, there’s nothing wrong. You could be short, why should he get a box to stand on, OK? He wants a box for the debates,” Trump said. “Why should he be entitled to that? Does that mean everyone else gets a box?”
But Trump did not stop there. He went on to say that it is “very unfair’ the Democratic National Committee adjusted debate qualification criteria to accommodate Bloomberg.
In response, the Bloomberg campaign similarly attacked Trump’s appearance.
“The president is lying. He is a pathological liar who lies about everything: his fake hair, his obesity, and his spray-on tan,” Bloomberg campaign spokesperson Julie Wood said in a statement, NBC News reported.
