Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “Amy Klobuchar blasts Michael Bloomberg: Nobody’s saying ‘we need someone richer’ in White House”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar took jabs Sunday at a pair of politically active billionaires, calling President Trump a “multimillionaire” and arguing that when it comes to Michael Bloomberg, nobody’s saying, “Oh, we need someone richer.”

Mr. Bloomberg, the former New York City mayor, indicated last week he may enter the 2020 Democratic presidential primary over concerns that the 2020 Democratic presidential primary field isn’t “well positioned” to win, as his spokesperson put it.

Ms. Klobuchar retorted that “I have seen a lot of excitement about all our candidates” and took a shot at Mr. Bloomberg’s net worth, estimated at $53 billion.

“When people look at the White House and they see this multi-millionaire — including, by the way, independents and moderate Republicans — and now he’s messing up so many things, I don’t think they say, oh, we need someone richer,” said Ms. Klobuchar on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Mr. Trump’s net worth is estimated at about $3 billion, although Democrats have accused him of exaggerating his wealth.
