    A number of past videos of Democratic presidential contender Michael Bloomberg sharing his warm feelings towards Donald Trump are currently making the rounds on social media, and this could not go unnoticed by the US president.

    “This is the REAL Mini Mike”, Donald Trump exclaimed, while sharing a 2011 video of ex-New York City Michael Bloomberg silently agreeing with the fact that he had often admitted to being “a fan of Donald Trump”.

    The US president, who had just been slamming the Democratic party presidential contender on his Twitter account a few hours ago, for allegedly “buying” the Democratic nomination, now thanked him for such a high appraisal – even though the interview dated way before his position in the White House.

    ​Unsurprisingly, reactions followed. Netizens were eager to remind Trump that Michael Bloomberg, whose campaign team called the US president “a pathological liar” just a couple of week ago, should not be much trusted with his words. Some also cited the alleged similarity between the two politicians.

    The video was just one of several old clips featuring then-mayor Bloomberg expressing his sympathy toward the owner of Trump Organisation in the past interviews and talks that have been recently unearthed by the media. In one of the videos, the Democratic presidential contender went as far as to declare his “love” for Donald Trump. Not clear though, whether this feeling is a mutual one for the US president.
