NY Post - Donald Trump hit Michael Bloomberg below the money belt — saying the billionaire former mayor’s media tech company is “very fragile.”
The Republican front-runner also scoffed at the idea that Bloomberg, now weighing a presidential run as an independent, is worth nearly $37 billion, as Forbes estimates.
“I don’t believe that. I don’t believe that,” the developer told CNN. “It’s a technology company, so I think it’s very fragile. I like real estate better.”
Trump suggested that the “Bloomberg terminal,” an essential tool for financial analysts since the 1980s, could be easily replaced.
“I mean, if someone came in, frankly, and comes up with a better machine than him, people would stop using his machine,” Trump said.
“I don’t even know why other companies haven’t come up with a better machine. Why? It’s so simple.”
