Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says he wants to keep demagogues out of the White House. And by demagogues, he means Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders.
"When a populous Democratic candidate promises free college, free health care and a pony, or another candidate promises to make other countries pay for our needs, remember, those who promise you a free lunch will invariably eat you for breakfast," Bloomberg said.
Bloomberg, who considered a presidential run earlier this year, made those comments and more at a commencement ceremony for students at the University of Michigan.
