President Donald Trump’s surrogates mocked former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as he exited the race Wednesday.
Bloomberg, who was banking on at least a few wins on Super Tuesday, came up short. The only territory he won was American Samoa, and he placed third or lower in most of the other states that voted Tuesday.
