Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is set to endorse presidential candidate from Democratic Party Hillary Clinton at the Democratic convention, despite not being a member of the party since 2000, local media reported Sunday, citing an adviser to Bloomberg.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to The New York Times newspaper, the decision reflects Bloomberg’s dismay over the rise of controversial Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. A former Republican party member, Bloomberg reportedly believes that Clinton is the best choice for moderate voters in 2016.
