In response, President Trump took aim at Bloomberg on Twitter, declaring, "Mini Mike Bloomberg is spending a lot of money on False Advertising"- a reference to Bloomberg reportedly spending over $200 million on ads for his campaign.
Trump has repeatedly pressed Republicans for a better healthcare plan but has so far promised a better plan if Republicans win big in 2020.
President Donald Trump criticized Mike Bloomberg on Monday after the former mayor ran ads against the president for his record on health care.
"I was the person who saved Pre-Existing Conditions in your Healthcare, you have it now, while at the same time winning the fight to rid you of the expensive, unfair and very unpopular Individual Mandate and, if Republicans win in court and take back the House of Representatives, your healthcare, that I have now brought to the best place in many years, will become the best ever, by far", he continued.
Bloomberg's ad features a NY nurse saying Trump's 'wild attacks on healthcare hurt the patients I care for'.
One such segment casts voters' choice between Bloomberg and Trump as an opportunity to elect "a doer versus a destroyer", charging that "Trump and the GOP have spent a decade attacking Obamacare while costs skyrocket". I will always protect your Pre-Existing Conditions, the Dems will not!'
The president claimed his policies have generated guarantees of coverage for Americans with pre-existing conditions.
The spot starts with footage of Trump saying Obamacare should 'implode.' The preside fired back in a pair of tweets.
Under Trump, the Justice Department also dropped its legal defense of Obamacare - a almost unprecedented move that drove the senior DOJ lawyer on the case to resign in protest - and supported a lawsuit by Republican-governed states to do away with the law.
We can certainly afford to make sure that everybody that needs to see a doctor can see a doctor, everybody that needs medicines to stay healthy can get those medicines'.
