Billionaire Michael Bloomberg, who is reportedly on the verge of announcing his own Democratic nomination for president, is spending millions of dollars to register voters in swing states.
RP reported last week that Michael Bloomberg is a billionaire who has used to fortune to influential political policies toward an extremely progressive bent.
Politico reports: “Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is preparing to file paperwork to qualify for the Democratic presidential primary in Alabama, ahead of a Friday deadline. The move would be a first step toward a national campaign, though Bloomberg has not made a final decision to run.”
Causes Bloomberg has expressed support for in the past include: banning large sodas, gun bans, and limiting the freedom of the press.
Now, CNBC reports, “is rolling out plans to spend an estimated $15 million to $20 million on a voter registration drive designed to weaken President Donald Trump’s reelection chances in five battleground states.
“News of the large investment, confirmed by Bloomberg’s team on Wednesday, comes less than a week after the former New York City mayor unveiled a $100 million online advertising campaign attacking Trump in four general election swing states as well.”
Why It Matters:
The United States would change drastically if Bloomberg’s vision were to be realized: liberties would be stripped, and a nanny state would take hold in full force.
