Amy Klobuchar Rips Michael Bloomberg: ‘I Don’t Think You Can Just Waltz In’

Sen. Amy Klobuchar speaks during the first night of the Democratic presidential debate.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg‘s potential entry into the 2020 presidential race has already drawn criticism from some Democratic candidates, but Sen. Amy Klobuchar on Sunday tore into the multi-billionaire for believing he can “waltz in” to the race and steal everyone’s thunder.

According to Politico, Klobuchar — a moderate Democrat — offered up praise for some of Bloomberg’s policy ideas and accomplishments Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union, but said that she thinks he’s entering the race for the wrong reason — a reason she apparently takes offense to.

“I certainly welcome Mayor Bloomberg to the race. He’s done incredible work on gun safety, on environmental issues. And it is work of merit,” Klobuchar said.

“But I don’t think you just waltz in and say, instead of ‘I’m good enough to be president,’ your argument is the other people aren’t good enough — that is not how we’ve been conducting these debates.”
