    Commenting on the prospects of Michael Bloomberg joining forces with Hillary Clinton in the presidential race, many netizens wondered aloud if it would be a good idea.

    US presidential hopeful and former mayor of New York Michael Bloomberg has made a surprise reveal about the identity of the person who may join him in his quest for the office of President of the United States.

    According to Drudge Report, Bloomberg's prospective running mate is none other than Hillary Clinton, former First Lady of the United States who attempted to become president herself but lost the 2016 election to Donald Trump.

    ​The media outlet added that Bloomberg would even change his official residence from New York to the homes he owns in Colorado or Florida, because the “electoral college makes it hard for a POTUS and VPOTUS to be from same state”.

    News of this development caused quite a stir among the social media audience, with many netizens questioning Bloomberg's move.

    Some even suggested that the idea might cause Bloomberg to lose votes rather than gain them.

    Michael Bloomberg officially launched his election campaign late in November 2019 after weeks of speculations about whether he'll join the race as a late entry or not.

    A prominent American businessman and a majority owner of Bloomberg L.P., he is also no stranger to the world of politics, having been the Mayor of New York City from 2002 to 2013.
