Bloomberg will count on leveraging his fortune - Forbes ranks him as the 15th richest person in the world now - to make up ground on the favorites.

"I'm running for president to defeat Donald Trump and rebuild America ..."

In the email, Micklethwait added that they will not investigate Bloomberg's family or foundations - the same would go for his Democratic rivals - but would publish or summarize investigative pieces on all Democratic candidates.

She said Trump will be ready to take on fellow billionaire Bloomberg.

In addition, Bloomberg already made plans to spend $100 million on a digital advertising campaign against Trump in the battleground states of Arizona, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

When Bloomberg was mayor, Republicans derided his efforts to limit the consumption of sugary drinks as a "Big-Gulp ban" and a symbol of government overreach.

World shares advance on upbeat comments on US-China trade
Since the siege began Sunday, more than 1,000 people were arrested and hundreds of injured treated at hospitals, authorities said. A White House spokesman declined to comment on whether the president meant to sign or veto the legislation.

"Mike believes every American should have access to affordable medical care, and expanding Obamacare and Medicare is the best way to achieve universal coverage", Bloomberg's website states. He did not spell out which sources he deemed "credible". He officially launched a bid to become mayor of NY in 2001. All four of my kids were born in NY when Michael Bloomberg was mayor.

But the size, scope and complexity of covering a national political campaign are far greater than covering city hall. These editorials reflect Bloomberg News' institutional view, and Mike Bloomberg's own positions on issues, according to Micklethwait. But Bloomberg is putting serious money into this and it will be a test to see if a latecomer can indeed but a nomination or the presidency, or if the American people will pass on that.

Shipley is a former speechwriter for President Clinton; O'Brien is a veteran journalist and the author of a book about Trump, "TrumpNation", for which he and his publisher were unsuccessfully sued by Trump over O'Brien's claims that Trump's net worth was considerably less than what Trump had claimed. It's unclear how this policy would work, given that nearly every issue of national and global importance is affected by the presidential race.

Bloomberg has devoted tens of millions of dollars to pursue his policy priorities in recent years, producing measurable progress in cities and states across America. "I think this is important", Klobuchar said. But we would like to invite readers who can afford to do so, and for whom The Times of Israel has become important, to help support our journalism by joining The Times of Israel Community. He cited the company's policy of not writing about itself or direct competitors.
