The Democratic presidential primary candidate, Michael Bloomberg, will sell his finance, data and media company, Bloomberg , if he is elected president of the United States.

The billionaire’s campaign center explains that the company would first go to a blind trust and then sell it.

The statement comes after the company’s future was questioned because Bloomberg appeared in the elections in November 2019, while he and his advisors have talked about different possibilities.

Initially, the company and people close to the company said that Bloomberg wanted it to be put into a trust fund, but later, during the campaign, he implied that the sale would be a possibility.

An adviser to the Bloomberg election campaign told CNN that the politician will sell the company if he is elected president.

Given this, his representatives admitted that this will be the decision taken by the businessman if he defeats President Donald Trump in November.

This Wednesday, Bloomberg will participate in his first debate with the rest of the candidates, after achieving a sharp rise in the latest polls, including a nationwide one that gives 19% of support between Democrats and independents, which puts him in second place after Bernie Sanders.

In recent days his campaign and that of the Vermont senator have crossed attacks, with the Sanders team questioning, among other things, the police tactics used by Bloomberg in New York, which disproportionately affected African-Americans and Hispanics and for which He apologized.

This Tuesday Bloomberg announced new measures to support young blacks and Latinos as part of their proposals to reform the criminal justice system.

He also announced a plan to impose stricter rules on Wall Street and set a fee for financial transactions.

Bloomberg, who made his fortune precisely with a business that serves information to investors, denounced in a statement that the financial system is not working as it should for most Americans.
