Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is perhaps best known for his “nanny state” policies like his unconstitutional soda ban and for his rabid anti-Second Amendment stance on guns. So it comes as some surprise that Bloomberg, a Democrat until he decided to run for mayor, is publicly stating that Americans need to “get behind” President Trump whether they like the election results or not.
ABC News reports:
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said America should “get behind” President Trump because “the public has spoken, whether you like the results or not,” during an appearance on ABC’s “The View.”
Bloomberg said that opposing a president just because of one’s alignment with another party is the wrong approach. He referred to a 2010 interview with The National Journal in which Mitch McConnell, at the time the Senate minority leader, said, “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.”
“That’s my country. That’s my kids and grandkids,” Bloomberg said of his reaction to McConnell’s statement. “You have to make it work. We have an election — whoever wins, you got to get behind.”
“He’s our president, and we need this country to be run well. I didn’t vote for him,” Bloomberg added. “Let’s just all hope that Donald Trump is a good president of the United States.”
He’s right, but don’t expect the anti-Trump “resistance” to follow his lead.
