Michael Bloomberg would sell his financial information and media company if he's elected president in an effort to be "180 degrees away from where Donald Trump is on these issues," an adviser to his campaign said Tuesday.
The comments come amid a barrage of attacks on Bloomberg from his Democratic rivals over how he's used the vast fortune he built through Bloomberg LP into a barrage of breathless advertising and an enormous campaign staff in the 2020 presidential race. "There will be no confusion about any of his financial holdings blurring the line between public service and personal profiteering," Bloomberg campaign adviser Tim O'Brien told CNN's Christine Amanpour Tuesday.
