Bloomberg unveils billboards to troll Trump ahead of campaign stops

Former New York City Mayor and Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg unveiled a series of anti-Trump billboards in Phoenix and Las Vegas ahead of President TrumpDonald TrumpBlinken holds first calls as Biden's secretary of State Senators discussing Trump censure resolution Dobbs: Republicans lost in 2020 because they 'forgot who was the true leader' MORE campaign stops on Friday. 

The digital billboards say phrases like "Donald Trump cheats at golf" and "Donald Trump’s wall fell over.”


New Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings uploaded last month show Bloomberg contributed a total of $464 million to his own campaign, more than double the amount raised by Trump or any other presidential candidate. According to ad tracking service Kantar/CMAG, Bloomberg's campaign has spent more than $415 million since joining the race late in November.

Bloomberg recently surged in polls since spending hundreds of millions of his own money in an advertising strategy targeting Super Tuesday states.

Bloomberg is taking a unique campaign approach in putting resources into ads against the president while the primary election is reaching its peak. The two New York City billionaires show particular resentment for each other, with Trump dubbing Bloomberg "mini Mike” during tweet storms.

The ad push also comes days after a lackluster debate performance in which each of Bloomberg's Democratic opponents piled on him, criticizing his record.

“I’d like to talk about who we’re running against: a billionaire who calls women 'fat broads' and 'horse-faced lesbians,'” Warren said in her opening remarks. “And no, I’m not talking about Donald Trump — I’m talking about Mayor Bloomberg.”
