One of the richest men in the world, Bloomberg is sending every indication he has decided to enter the crowded Democratic presidential primary election.

“I’m disgusted by the idea that Michael Bloomberg or any billionaire thinks they can circumvent the political process and spend tens of millions of dollars to buy elections,” Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders, a Vermont senator, wrote Friday on Twitter.
