Elizabeth Warren Trolls Mike Bloomberg's Planned Entry Into Presidential Race

The senator urged the former New York City mayor to check out her campaign website "for policy plans that will make a huge difference for working people."

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has a plan for everything ― including how to deal with former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s anticipated entry into the 2020 presidential race.

After news broke that the billionaire businessman was expected to file paperwork to get on the ballot in Alabama’s Democratic presidential primary, Warren quickly sent out a tweet that was one-tenth congratulations and 90% snark.

“Welcome to the race, @MikeBloomberg!” Warren’s tweet began. “If you’re looking for policy plans that will make a huge difference for working people and which are very popular, start here.”

The senator’s tweet linked to the calculator for billionaires on her campaign website to help them figure out how much they would pay under her proposed wealth tax.

Many Twitter users were impressed by the power of Warren’s Twitter game.

One Twitter user noted something special for Bloomberg in Warren’s billionaire calculator.

Another person speculated why news of Bloomberg’s possible presidential run surfaced a day after fellow billionaire Bill Gates griped about what he might pay in taxes under a Warren administration.
