«Hace tres meses, entré en la carrera presidencial para derrotar a Donald Trump. Hoy, dejo la carrera por la misma razón; para derrotar a Donald Trump», aseguró en un comunicado en el que subrayó que «está claro que el candidato (óptimo) es mi amigo y gran estadounidense, Joe Biden.

Bloomberg pulls out of US presidential race, backs Biden

The billionaire has announced he is dropping out after a disappointing Super Tuesday. Bloomberg has offered his support to Joe Biden’s bid as Elizabeth Warren cast doubt on her candidacy.

Mike Bloomberg dropped out of the Democratic party’s presidential race on Wednesday.

The billionaire’s announcement came after suffering a string of electoral defeats on Super Tuesday, the most notable day on the primary calendar.

Bloomberg is backing fellow Democrat Joe Biden to become the party’s nominee to face US President Donald Trump in November’s countrywide elections.

The 78-year-old, who joined the contest 101 days ago, tweeted: “Three months ago, I entered the race to defeat Donald Trump. Today, I’m leaving for the same reason. Defeating Trump starts with uniting behind the candidate with the best shot to do it. It’s clear that is my friend and a great American, Joe Biden.”
