Bloomberg: ‘I'd Vote to Convict' Trump in Impeachment Trial

Bloomberg told TODAY that while he thinks the impeachment process is "not good" for Democrats, he would vote to convict him.


Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said he would vote to convict President Donald Trump if he were a senator because "there's so much evidence that he acted inappropriately," NBC News reports.

In an interview with the TODAY show that aired Monday, Bloomberg told Craig Melvin that while he thinks the impeachment process is "not good" for Democrats, "the president's actions eventually, as information came out, convinced me that he should be impeached and that it should be a fair trial."

Bloomberg said he chose to enter the 2020 Presidential race in November because he didn't think any of the other Democratic contenders could beat Trump. He called the president "dangerous to our democracy" and said America can't afford four more years of Trump.
