Murdoch: Bloomberg Should Join 2016 Race


fox-ceo-rupert-murdochRupert Murdoch took a jab at GOP frontrunner Donald Trump late Sunday and called on former New York mayor and fellow billionaire Michael Bloomberg to join the 2016 presidential election.

The media mogul tweeted that though Trump, who he has previously called “embarrassing,” is a “very serious candidate,” Bloomberg should be the “next billionaire candidate” to step into the ring.

Murdoch later responded to complaints that Bloomberg was a “nanny state” mayor, adding that he agreed, but that the mayor was a great “philanthropic executive” who, along with Rudy Giuliani, made New York City the greatest.

Murdoch then sent a tweet explaining he wouldn’t vote for Bloomberg if he ran, but that he was a “friend I admire.” Read more at CNN Money.
