Michael Bloomberg, former mayor of New York, appeared on the final night of the Democratic convention and attacked President Trump on the state of the economy.
MICHAEL BLOOMBERG: I'm urging you to vote against him because he's done a bad job. Today, unemployment is at historic highs, and small businesses are struggling just to survive.
It didn't have to be this way. Before I ran for mayor, I spent 20 years running a business I started from scratch. So I want to ask small-business owners and their employees one question, and it's a question for everyone. Would you rehire or work for someone who ran your business into the ground and who always does what's best for him or her even when it hurts the company and whose reckless decisions put you in danger and who spends more time tweeting than working? If the answer is no, why the hell would we ever rehire Donald Trump for another four years?
Trump says we should vote for him because he's a great businessman. Really? He drove his companies into bankruptcy six times, always leaving behind customers and contractors who were cheated and swindled and stopped doing business with him.
Well, this time all of us are paying the price, and we can't let him get away with it again. Donald says we should vote for him because the economy was great before the virus. Huh? Biden and Obama created more jobs over their last three years than the Trump administration did over their first three, and economic growth was higher under Biden and Obama than under Trump.
In fact, while Biden helped save 1 million auto-industry jobs, Trump has lost 250,000 manufacturing jobs. So when Trump says he wants to make America great again, he's making a pretty good case for Joe Biden.
