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

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said Friday that she would consider suspending deportations of illegal immigrants to force Congress to approve her immigration agenda if she is elected president.

Bloomberg, who co-founded financial information and media company Bloomberg LP in 1981, was mayor of New York City from 2002 to 2013, serving three terms.

Another socialist Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders also reacted upon learning about Bloomberg 's recent move. Bloomberg adviser Howard Wolfson said the former mayor is anxious that the current crop of Democratic presidential candidates is "not well-positioned" to defeat Trump. This time he would be entering the race as The Anti-Trump and The Anti-Warren, The Anti Sanders, The Anti-Wealth Tax.
