In a tweet, Trump lambasted Bloomberg’s widely panned performance in a February debate during his short-lived bid for the Democratic presidential nomination and accused the former mayor of trying to stage a political “comeback” with his convention speech. 

“After the worst debate performance in the history of politics, Michael Bloomberg, commonly known as Mini Mike, is trying to make a comeback by begging the Democrats for relevance,” Trump tweeted minutes after Bloomberg’s speech aired. “They treated him like a dog and always will. Before politics, he said GREAT things about me!”

Bloomberg offered a scathing critique of Trump’s presidency and business record during his convention speech on Thursday night, saying that the president had “failed the American people catastrophically.”

“Four years ago, I came before this very convention and said New Yorkers know a con when we see one,” Bloomberg said. “But tonight I’m not asking you to vote against Trump because he’s a bad guy. I’m urging you to vote against him because he’s done a bad job.”
