President Donald Trump quoted former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg as saying he was a “big fan” of Trump, but the source interview reveals that Bloomberg was actually laughing at the idea of Trump running for president when he made that statement.
On Friday morning, Trump shared a very brief video clip on Twitter, and wrote “This is the REAL Mini Mike. He admitted, many times, that he is ‘a fan of Donald Trump. He’s a New York ICON.,,” then added, “Thank you Mike!”
The video Trump shared was an edited clip of Bloomberg being interviewed by Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace, and making the “New York icon” comment — followed by a denunciation of Trump’s birtherism.
