Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg hit back at President Donald Trump on Thursday over his repeated attacks, saying that people in New York call Trump “a carnival barking clown.”

Trump tweeted Thursday morning: “Mini Mike is a 5’4” mass of dead energy who does not want to be on the debate stage with these professional politicians. No boxes please.”

He added that Bloomberg “hates” Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who he referred to as “Crazy Bernie,” and said the former mayor, who is the only presidential candidate whose fortune dwarfs Trump’s, “will, with enough money, possibly stop him. Bernie’s people will go nuts!”

Bloomberg tweeted to Trump in response: “we know many of the same people in NY. Behind your back they laugh at you & call you a carnival barking clown. They know you inherited a fortune & squandered it with stupid deals and incompetence. I have the record & the resources to defeat you. And I will.”

Trump said in an earlier tweet that “Mini Mike Bloomberg is a LOSER who has money but can’t debate and has zero presence, you will see. He reminds me of a tiny version of Jeb “Low Energy” Bush, but Jeb has more political skill and has treated the Black community much better than Mini!”

Bloomberg said earlier this week, “Our country has a rich history of presidents who respected the power, decorum, and influence of their office. Unfortunately, that rich history ended the day Trump became president.”
