Michael R. Bloomberg has instructed advisers to draw up plans for a potential independent campaign in this year’s presidential race. His advisers and associates said he was galled by Donald J. Trump’s dominance of the Republican field, and troubled by Hillary Clinton’s stumbles and the rise of Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont on the Democratic side.

Mr. Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York City, has in the past contemplated running for the White House on a third-party ticket, but always concluded he could not win. A confluence of unlikely events in the 2016 election, however, has given new impetus to his presidential aspirations.

  • I hope he does. I think out of all those campaigning for President, He’s be the best choice. Here is a man that does not have any actual political party affiliation. Since he has gone from democrat, to republican, to independent. He will not be swayed by all the rhetoric that political parties bring when elections come along. He is knowledgeable in both governmental administration, and finance, He is a person that listens to the people but will not be bullied by them. Like Trump he does not need to owe favors to anyone if elected.

  • The husband of Mrs. Aliza Doctoroff, the evil ghost driving the “new israel fund”, NIF, was CEO at Bloomberg L.P.

    If Mr. Bloomberg is a supporter of the infamous NIF, will he be in a position to inflict much more damage to Israel than President Obama?

    My question: is Mr. Michael Bloomberg a supporter of the NIF, or is he a supporter of the Jewish State Israel?
