While speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Saturday, the president addressed Bloomberg taking hits from political rivals at the recent debates.
“We’ve got mini Mike but I think he’s out of it,” Trump said, adding, “That was probably the worst debate performance in the history of presidential debates. … But he’s going to keep spending the money.”
Trump then referred to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass), “Boy did Pocahontas destroy him. … She was really mean to mini Mike. I’ll tell you, the way she treated him, he didn’t know what hit him.”
Trump then appeared to narrate what he thought Bloomberg was thinking, “He’s going, ‘Oh, get me off of this stage, get me off.'” Trump then proceeded to shrink behind the podium. This drew loud applause and cheers from the audience in response.
“It’s true,” Trump added. The crowd ended up chanting, “Four more years,” afterward.

This wasn’t Trump’s first time labeling Bloomberg “mini Mike” and mocking his height.
“Mini Mike is a 5’4” mass of dead energy who does not want to be on the debate stage with these professional politicians,” Trump previously tweeted. “No boxes please.”
However, according to a letter released on Dec. 12, 2019, by Bloomberg’s campaign, Bloomberg is actually 5-foot-7-inches. According to a letter by the White House physician in 2018, Trump is 6-foot-3-inches.

Bloomberg also hasn’t stayed silent in returning criticism to Trump, as he previously said at a rally, “He calls me Little Mike and the answer is, ‘Donald, where I come from we measure your height from your neck up.’”
