PRESIDENT Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that “little” billionaire Mike Bloomberg asked to stand on a box for the Democratic debates.
Bloomberg’s team fired back and branded Trump a “liar” after the claims aired on his pre-Super Bowl interview today.
When describing Bloomberg, Trump said: “I think he’s little” and claimed he asked for a box to stand on for the debates.
“You know, now he wants a box for the debates to stand on.
“It’s OK. There’s nothing wrong. You can be short.
The President continued: “Why should he get a box to stand on. He wants a box for the debates. Why should he be entitled to that, really? Does that mean everyone else gets a box?’
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is 5ft 8in and Trump is 6ft 3in.
Trump added: “Cory Booker and all these people couldn’t get all the things that Bloomberg’s getting now.
“But, I think it’s very unfair for the Democrats. But I would love to run against Bloomberg. I would love it.”
Trump even shared a tweet Sunday. It read: “Mini Mike is part of the Fake News.”
Bloomberg’s National Press Secretary Julie Wood fired back after the eight-minute footage aired.
She said: “The president is lying. He is a pathological liar who lies about everything: his fake hair, his obesity, and his spray-on tan.”
Trump also commented on the Hillary Clinton email scandal, saying: “How she got away with that is a disgrace.”
He also described Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House, as a “confused and nervous woman.”
Trump said: “I don’t think she’s going to be there too long either. I think the radical left is going to take over.”
When describing Bernie Sanders, he said: “I think of communism when I think of Bernie.”
Trump opened up to Hannity about his presidency, saying: “It’s been very unfair from the day I won.”
In regards to the impeachment trial and the Mueller report, Trump admitted: “My family suffered because of all of this. It should never happen to another President.
“You look at the lies, the reports that were done that were so false, the level of hypocrisy.”
The interview concluded with Trump called sports “a microcosm of life.”
“You have winners, you have champions, great coaches like Belichick, people you expect to see more out of, and often times they produce.”
