Bloomberg rules out run for president in 2016

In a column he wrote for Bloomberg View, he took a swipe at GOP frontrunner Donald Trump saying Americans cannot “make America great again” by turning their backs on the nation’s values.

“I love our country too much to play a role in electing a candidate who would weaken our unity and darken our future — and so I will not enter the race for president of the United States,” Bloomberg wrote.

He also warned that if he were to launch a third-party bid, “there is a good chance that my candidacy could lead to the election of Donald Trump or Senator Ted Cruz. That is not a risk I can take in good conscience.”
