Shots Fired: Elizabeth Warren Takes Aim at Michael Bloomberg’s Billionaire Status

But he told Bezos he was not considering a run at the time of their call, according to the report.

Don't worry too much about Mike Bloomberg - if history is any guide, if billionaires do nothing other than invest their wealth in the stock market, it's likely that their wealth will continue to grow.

USA presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren has criticised Amazon Founder and CEO Jeff Bezos and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg after reports surfaced that Bezos called the billionaire businessman to launch a 2020 presidential bid.

Bloomberg also had a question for Bezos: Will he reconsider his decision to cancel plans for an Amazon headquarters in New York City? At the time, Bloomberg said no, according to the report.

Bloomberg's prospective entry into the Democratic primary comes amid continued polling and fundraising strength for Sen.

Bezos is not the only billionaire who has expressed interest in a Bloomberg campaign.

Ms. Warren made the comment after a mother of five in the audience tearfully asked the MA senator whether she would be willing to put a moratorium on deportations of illegal immigrants who have criminal records, like her husband. Bernie Sanders, the two most left-leaning candidates in the race.

"I am open to suspending deportations, particularly as a way to push Congress for comprehensive immigration reform", the Democratic presidential candidate said during a Latinx town hall in Raleigh, North Carolina, according to a video posted on YouTube by the Republican National Committee.

Sanders stated on his website that his tax plan would apply to "the wealthiest 180,000 households in America", in which an 8 percent tax will be imposed on wealth over $10 billion, lowering incrementally to a 1 percent tax on wealth equalling $32 million for a married couple.
