An audio recording of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg captured his overwhelming support for stop and frisk.
The recording was from a speech at the Aspen Institute where Bloomberg aggressively defended stop and frisk and the way his policy focused on minorities in certain communities.
Bloomberg apologized for backing stop and frisk after he decided to run for president saying, “I was wrong, and I am sorry.”
President Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale posted the audio on Twitter:
All the money in the world can’t undo this

In addition to stop and frisk, Bloomberg has also expressed views that are concerning and suggests he looks down on individuals that are not of his elite status.
For example, he advocated taxing the poor in order to mitigate the ability of this group of people to make choices he deems are bad for them.
The record shows Bloomberg is a progressive elite who will not hesitate to use the boot of government to shape society to his will.
Bloomberg is dangerous to liberty.
