Trump, Bloomberg wage social media war in battle of New York billionaires

Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg may be waiting in the wings for Super Tuesday voting, but a new poll shows him edging former Vice President Joe Biden in Florida, 27% to 26%.

Twenty minutes later, Bloomberg returned fire, drawing attention to doubts that Trump is not as wealthy or as successful as he likes to portray himself.

"@RealDonaldTrump - we know numerous same people in NY. Behind your back they laugh at you & call you a carnival barking clown", Bloomberg said in a posting. "He sees our poll numbers and I think it's fair to say he is scared because he knows I have the record and the resources to beat him".

Trump, whom Forbes estimates to be worth $3.1 billion, and associated committees raised $154 million in the last three months of 2019 and have $195 million on hand, according to an analysis by the New York Times.

President Trump and Michael Bloomberg exchanged a series of insults online on Tuesday morning after the president lambasted his potential Democratic challenger as a "mass of dead energy" who's purposely skirting the primary debate stage.

During a debate in January, Bloomberg's social media team spent the night sending out a steady stream of #BloombergFacts that you'd expect to originate on Weird Twitter as opposed to the official account of a presidential candidate.

In his response, Bloomberg accused the president of attacking him because of his "fear over the growing strength of my campaign".

President Trump has renewed his assault on 2020 hopeful Mike Bloomberg, blasting the former NY mayor for the aggressive "stop-and-frisk" policy employed under his watch and its harmful impact on black New Yorkers.

The following day, Bloomberg tweeted again: "Donald Trump is the world's biggest schoolyard bully - with no respect for civility or decency, or facts or honesty".
