Mike Bloomberg Changed Rules to Run for Third Term in New York

Billionaire Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg has been busy casting President Trump as a “bully.”

Bloomberg even told a campaign rally last week, “I bill myself as the un-Trump.” But, as Breitbart reports, as mayor of New York City from 2002 to 2013, Bloomberg acted like the authoritarian many Democrats claim Trump to be, changing the rules to allow himself to run for a third term, then voting to change them back.

Bloomberg argued that only he could get the city through the fallout of the global financial crisis in 2008. So, in 2009, he engineered the repeal of a law passed twice by voters limiting officials to two terms.

Later Bloomberg voted in 2010 to reinstate a two-term limit, meaning that only he could enjoy a third term.

He called his third term “an extraordinary one-time thing.”
