Bloomberg Ad Targets Trump Ahead of SOTU: ‘Angry, Out of Control President’
Presidential candidate accuses Trump of sowing division across the country
White House hopeful Michael Bloomberg launched his campaign ad attacking President Donald Trump ahead of the State of the Union, accusing Trump of creating division.
"The real state of the union? A nation divided by an angry, out of control president. A White House beset by lies, chaos, and corruption. An administration that has failed the American people," the narrator states.
"It doesn't have to be this way. Next year, we can have a leader who brings people together, solves problems, and gets results," the video continues.
"Mike Bloomberg will get it done."
Bloomberg's campaign ad will run on all the big cable news channels, including CNN, Fox, and MSNBC, before Trump delivers his State of the Union address around 9 p.m. EST.
The former mayor of New York City has already spent over $100 million on television ads, including an $11 million spot during the Super Bowl.
Bloomberg is becoming a severe contender for Trump, even leading Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren in one national poll.
Following the recent change in Democratic National Committee rules, Bloomberg may also qualify for the next Democratic presidential debate, taking place on Feb. 19 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Trump accused "Mini Mike Bloomberg" of rigging the election against "Crazy Bernie."

The president wrote on Twitter:
"Many of the ads you are watching were paid for by Mini Mike Bloomberg. HE is going nowhere, just wasting his money, but he is getting the DNC to rig the election against Crazy Bernie, something they wouldn't do for @CoryBooker and others. They are doing it to Bernie again, 2016."
Bloomberg was also criticized for running a widely misleading campaign ad pushing gun control during the Super Bowl.
The National Rifle Association (NRA) fired back at Bloomberg's anti-Second Amendment advertisement after it was found to be riddled with false claims.
The NRA shredded "Mini Mike" by releasing their own ad, highlighting Bloomberg's falsehoods.
The NRA was responding to Bloomberg's $10 million ad that made false claims about the number of children killed by firearms every year.
"Your $10M #SuperBowl ad won't beat the American spirit," the NRA assured the former New York City mayor.
