Bloomberg claims US needs immigrants to ‘improve our culture’

Fox News

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said this week that the U.S. needs “an awful lot more immigrants rather than less.”

Bloomberg, who formally hopped on the 2020 campaign trail earlier this week, made the comment during a stop at a Mexican restaurant in Phoenix, Ariz., adding 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.” 

Bloomberg entered the race relatively late and observers have speculated he was nervous about the other candidates’ ability to beat Trump. Bloomberg’s own campaign manager, Kevin Sheekey, said on Monday that Trump was “winning” the 2020 election.

“It’s very tough for people who don’t live in New York or California to understand that, but that is what’s happening,” Sheekey told CNN. “Mike was doing everything he could from the sidelines and he finally decided it wasn’t enough to sit on the sidelines and he needed to do what he could to alter that dynamic.”

The billionaire Bloomberg is a perceived moderate who has run for office as a Republican and would be competing in a field of Democrats that have pushed sweeping progressive policies.

He also blasted Trump’s policies that resulted in the separation of families arriving at the border. “Ripping kids away from their parents is a disgrace,” he said.

Trump won after touting a hard-line immigration policy, including the construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. His immigration policies have come under continuous fire from Democrats.

Bloomberg also reiterated his Nov. 17 apology for supporting New York’s “stop-and-frisk” police strategy, a practice that he embraced as mayor and continued to defend despite claims that it had a disproportionate impact on people of color.

He said it was a mistake but also credited it with reducing New York’s murder rate.

“How many times do you hear elected officials say, ‘I made a mistake’?” Bloomberg said. “None of us do everything perfectly. I’m sorry it happened, I can’t rewrite history. Let’s get on with it.”

  1. This Son Of A Bitch donates how much a year so people can be free? And he has stolen how much of his ill gotten wealth?

    You want to ever vote for a con man scum bag, this Jew York Piece Of Shit would be it. A Jew York midget wanting to be a BIG MAN.


  2. “… 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.”

    Blah, blah, blah…

    He could not produce a SINGLE SHRED OF EVIDENCE to support ANY of those bogus claims.

    “Bloomberg entered the race relatively late…”

    He’s there for the same reason that retard Biden is (and Beto WAS)… namely, to put forth the extreme views on certain topics (ESPECIALLY GUN CONTROL ISSUES).

    These bozos have ZERO chance, and they know it… they’re merely there to make the rest of the clowns look LESS extreme in their views (probably get ‘refunds’ for the campaign mammon they spend).

    Day in, day out… dog & pony for the mindless masses.


  4. The Citizens of the Republic of the United States of America need to boot Bloomturd and his tribe of our land into the ocean!

    1. This is a very innovative thought; I never thought of it that way. We often hear, “Why can’t we help them where they are?” But I’ve heard no one ask what you’ve asked. It adds a whole other dimension to this uprooting forced invasion. Seems world events just have no room for COMMON SENSE.
