Bloomberg is a former Republican-turned independent who registered as a Democrat previous year. He endorsed Hillary Clinton in that race and, in a speech at the Democratic Party convention, pummeled Trump as a con who has oversold his business successes.

Lazare highlights that the Democratic Party's attempts to impeach Donald Trump over his alleged effort to convince Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Hunter and Joe Biden have ultimately backfired on the Democratic presidential frontrunner, whose activities appeared to be "blatantly self-serving" when his son "sought to enrich himself at Ukrainian expense".

Bloomberg became involved in politics when he chose to run for mayor in 2001.
His politics in recent years bend very liberal, though his "pragmatic" business-like approach still remains, and won't sit well with progressives in the base of the party looking for a candidate to push the envelope like Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth warren.
The former New York City mayor has had a bit of a back-and-forth about entering the 2020 foray. "He is the foil".
And Bloomberg's own reasons he cited for not running earlier this year could be used against him as well.
The former attorney general, who held office from 2009 to 2015 and is now chairman of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, categorically ruled out a bid for the presidency in March this year. The deadline to file for the ballot is Friday.
