US President Donald Trump nicknamed Michael Bloomberg “Mini Mike” as he crashed in the biggest day of the Democratic campaign of the year which follows the US Presidential Elections in November this year.
Joe Biden ranks top after winning at least eight large states on Super Tuesday. While Bernie Sanders grabbed the biggest prize of California to set up a long one-on-one battle for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Both results left former New York mayor and owner of Bloomberg media, Michael Bloomberg largely out of the race after spending more than half a billion dollars on advertising for the presidential run.
Michael Bloomberg only won in the US territory of American Samoa.
However, Mr Bloomberg campaign anchors said he would think over whether to stay in the race on Wednesday or not, but that doesn’t mean he would step out completely.
President Donald Trump did not spare the crashed presidential aspirant, Mr Bloomberg, as he took to Twitter to launch him a humiliating nickname, “Mini Mike”.
Trump quickly tweeted: “The biggest loser tonight, by far, is Mini Mike Bloomberg.
“His “political” consultants took him for a ride.
“$700 million washed down the drain, and he got nothing for it but the nickname Mini Mike, and the complete destruction of his reputation. Way to go Mike!”
President Trump still didn’t let the sleeping dog lie, later in the evening, he posted a video of Mr Bloomerg eating pizza, while the results were being announced.
And then he captioned the video: “Mini Mike, don’t lick your dirty fingers. Both unsanitary and dangerous to others and yourself.”
Trump’s comments follow a report of more than 120 people being infected by Coronavirus in the US, and at least nine persons confirmed dead.
However, it seems Mr Blomberg isn’t affected by Mr Trump’s comments on Twitter as he tweeted without referring to Trump’s statement.
Mr Bloomberg tweeted: “Thanks to our supporters who went to the polls, knocked on doors, made phone calls, and sent texts to friends. We couldn’t have done this without you.
“We’re 100 days into our campaign, and we’re more determined than ever to defeat Donald Trump and rebuild America.”
Joe Biden moved to wins across the South, Midwest and New England. American voters in 14 states voted for a Democratic challenger to Mr Trump in the November 3 election.
“They don’t call it Super Tuesday for nothing,” Mr Biden, former president Barrack Obama’s vice president who performed so poorly in the first three nominating contests but scaled through with a victory in South Carolina, told happy supporters in California.
“We are very much alive,” Mr Biden assures.
Meanwhile, Mr Sanders, the previous front-runner who had hoped to take a big step toward the nomination on Tuesday, was projected by Edison Research to win in his home state of Vermont, Colorado and Utah.
