Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg once told President Trump “yes, Donald, I do love you,” according to a resurfaced video clip from 2016.
Bloomberg, who is among the Democratic presidential candidates running to challenge Trump in November, was speaking at Oxford’s Saïd Business School about a month after the president was elected in November 2016.
The president told Bloomberg that he had seen his speech at the Democratic National Convention that July in Philadelphia in which Bloomberg was highly critical of Trump.
“But you really do love me, don’t ya?” Bloomberg recalled Trump asking him. “And I said, ‘Yes, Donald, I do love you, I just disagree with everything you’ve ever said.’”
