During a stop at a Mexican restaurant in Phoenix, Ariz., 2020 presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg pandered to the crowd by saying immigrants are needed “to take all the different kinds of jobs that the country needs…improve our culture, our cuisine, our religion, our dialogue and certainly improve our economy.”
This is the usual mantra that comes from the left that immigrants take jobs Americans won’t do. The problem is that Americans want LEGAL immigrants, but Bloomberg may be conflating legal and illegal immigrants. Even though the media has hijacked the narrative, President Trump wants legal immigrants to come to the country. He’s just not ok with the illegals flooding our southern border.
This is really all about helping the out-of-touch elites screw American workers instead of helping with jobs. Bloomberg wants more immigrants to come to the US to take jobs and lower wages. It’s the globalist view that others like former VP Joe Biden have taken:
It’s also about creating more votes for Democrats.
Bloomberg also tried to shame President Trump for separating families of illegals as they come across the border. He forgets that Obama did the same thing. Why? It’s the law and is for the safety of the child.
Bloomberg has committed a few unforced errors in his bid to gain traction in the presidential race.
A video emerged last week that has created negative buzz for Bloomberg:
Michael Bloomberg just announced a run for president, but he’s proving he’s not in touch with average Americans who don’t want higher taxes.
He’s always been a fan of the Nanny State, where the government is bigger and knows better than you. The former Mayor of New York City’s policies during his years in charge of the city proves he’s all about being in charge of YOU! Remember the Big Gulp controversy where Bloomberg went to war against the big sodas because he believed they are unhealthy?
The flashback below is another example of the liberal elitist belief that they know better than you what is best for you. It’s like Bloomberg is saying, “Hey, poor people, I want to tax you more because I care about you. You are too stupid to know what is best for you, so I will raise your taxes and tell you how to live your life because I am smarter than you and I know what is best for you” This is terrifying.
Bloomberg wants you to believe that higher taxes will have an impact on your “behavior” and how you deal with yourself. How you deal with yourself like buying fewer Big Gulps if there is a tax on it.
Bloomberg’s comments below are dripping in arrogance at almost every turn. It’s hard to believe this billionaire is so lacking in self-awareness.
Michael Bloomberg: “Some people say, well, taxes are regressive. But in this case, yes, they are. That’s the good thing about them because the problem is in people that don’t have a lot of money. And so, higher taxes should have a bigger impact on their behavior and how they deal with themselves.”
“Sugary drinks” should be taxed? Where does it end?
