There are so many presidential candidates on the Democrat side it’s becoming almost impossible to keep up with them all. The one name that will not be making the list is pro-abortion billionaire Michael Bloomberg.

The former New York City mayor indicated today that he will not be running against President Donald Trump in 2020. But he will do everything he can to trash the president and support his opponent:

He said that instead of putting his time into a presidential run, he will focus his energy and personal fortune into thwarting Trump and his agenda.

“I’ve never made any secret of my belief that Donald Trump is a threat to our country,” Bloomberg wrote in a column announcing his decision. “ … It’s essential that we nominate a Democrat who will be in the strongest position to defeat Donald Trump and bring our country back together.”

Bloomberg has quite a fortune to put toward that goal. He was reportedly prepared to spend well over the $100 million he infused into his last campaign for mayor.

“I’m fortunate enough to be in a position to devote the resources needed to bring people together and make a big difference,” Bloomberg said Tuesday.

As mayor, Bloomberg pushed radical pro-abortion policies on New York City, including an ordinance that restricted pro-life pregnancy centers’ free speech. He also donated $250,000 to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion chain, in 2012 and received an award from it in 2014.

New York City had the nickname “the abortion capital of the United States” under Bloomberg. More than 83,000 abortions were performed in New York City in 2010 – meaning 40 percent of all pregnancies in New York City ended in abortion. The number of unborn babies being killed in abortions was about the same in 2009, according to the city health department.

In addition to supporting pro-abortion policies, Bloomberg, his company and foundation also have donated huge amounts of money to pro-abortion causes. In 2012, Bloomberg Philanthropies launched a $50 million program in partnership with Planned Parenthood to push “reproductive health programs” (an umbrella term that includes elective abortions) on the world’s poorest countries.

Under his administration, the city also provided $15 million in bond funding for Planned Parenthood to renovate one of its huge abortion facilities in 2012.

Bloomberg also has been a big supporter of life-destroying embryonic stem cell research. In 2006, he donated $100 million to Johns Hopkins University for stem cell research, including embryonic stem cell research.

Forbes currently lists Bloomberg, 76, as the 11th richest person in the world. He, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, George Soros and other rich, old white men are some of the biggest donors to the abortion industry.
