Don Trump Jr. Mocks Bloomberg's Height After a 'Short' Campaign
Trump's son responds to news of billionaire dropping out of race
President Donald Trump's son blasted former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg after he bowed out of the Democratic presidential race on Wednesday.
The billionaire media mogul, who spent half a million dollars on ad buys in early primary states, only managed to win U.S. territory American Samoa.
Bloomberg finished third in most of the 14 states that voted on Super Tuesday.
"It was a 'short' campaign," tweeted Donald Trump Jr. following the news while giving a veiled jab at his height.
Trump Jr.'s father spent much of last month mocking the former mayor's height, frequently referring to him as "Mini Mike."
During Trump's speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday, he ducked behind the podium and yelled, "Get me off the stage," referring to the billionaire's disastrous performance during the debates against Elizabeth Warren.
Last month, Trump blasted Bloomberg for not participating in the Democratic primary debates.
Trump suggested that Bloomberg may also stop Bernie Sanders, noting that the socialist candidate's supporters would "go nuts."

"Mini Mike is a 5’4” mass of dead energy who does not want to be on the debate stage with these professional politicians," Trump tweeted.
"No boxes, please."
"He hates Crazy Bernie and will, with enough money, possibly stop him. Bernie’s people will go nuts!"
In February, Bloomberg claimed Russian Dictator Vladimir Putin was helping Bernie Sanders get elected so he can lose to President Donald Trump.
While the media mogul was dodging questions about the economy, he brought up a recent report that Russia was helping Sanders in the Democratic primary.
“Vladimir Putin thinks that Donald Trump should be president of the United States, and that’s why Russia is helping you get elected so you’ll lose to him,” Bloomberg told Sanders.
