2020 presidential candidate former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is considering Hillary Clinton as his running mate.
The news is based on a source in the Bloomberg campaign that spoke with the Drudge Report.
According to Drudge Report, the source said, “Polling found the Bloomberg-Clinton combination would be a formidable force to take on Trump in the race for the White House.”
Fox News reports:
Bloomberg is also reaching out to the black community.
For too long, Black Americans have been kept from fully participating in the economy.
As mayor, I fought to change the status quo for Black NYers by addressing areas such as education, health care & incarceration.
As president, I'll continue to fight for all of Black America. pic.twitter.com/Dy5SwE8aLw

Meanwhile, Bloomberg and President Trump went after each other on Twitter.
Bloomberg picking Clinton is part of the Democrat establishment trying to head off Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) to take on President Trump in November.
Think of this scenario as the Democrat establishment strikes back.
