Michael Bloomberg: How I'd Fight Antisemitism


Bernie Sanders may have won the New Hampshire primary, but Michael Bloomberg was probably the candidate who gained most.

That's because Sanders is largely unappealing to a huge portion of American voters. His main challenger, Pete Buttigieg, has his own limitations. So that means Bloomberg, a successful businessman and former mayor of New York City, could find a spot for himself on the Democratic ticket. Polls also show that he beats President Trump in a one-on-one matchup.

In the Times of Israel, Bloomberg comments on how he'd fight antisemitism if elected president:

I will speak out against anti-Semitism on the right and on the left. I will speak out against it whether it shows up on the floor of Congress — or on campus quads.

But I won’t stop there. I’ll speak out against hatred of all kinds.

I will label hate crimes as “domestic terrorism” — and charge perpetrators accordingly.

I will launch a national, coordinated effort, led by the FBI director and Department of Justice, to crack down on violent extremists.

And I will never stand by idly in the face of hatred — against anyone.
