Donald Trump utilized his Twitter account Friday to return fire at former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg for his highly critical speech of the Republican nominee at the Democratic National Convention.

During Bloomberg’s speech at the DNC on Wednesday, he called Trump a “dangerous demagogue” adding, “I’m a New Yorker, and New Yorkers know a con when we see one.” (RELATED: Trump’s Running Mate: ‘I Don’t Think Name Calling Has Any Place In Public Life’)

A couple of days later, Trump (height 6’2”) brought back his jab previously used for Marco Rubio (height 5’10”), calling Bloomberg (height 5’8”) “Little Michael Bloomberg.”

Trump added that Bloomberg’s mayorship was a “disaster” and that he “never had the guts to run for president.”

Trump then added in another tweet that if Bloomberg would run for mayor again, “they would run him out of town!”

It is worth noting that in 2012, Trump did praise Bloomberg for his job as mayor of New York City.
