The Twitter back-and-forth began Wednesday morning when Trump tweeted at the former mayor, mocking him for dropping out of the Democratic primary.
“Mini Mike Bloomberg just ‘quit’ the race for president. I could have told him long ago that he didn’t have what it takes, and he would have saved himself a billion dollars, the real cost,” Trump tweeted after Bloomberg announced he would suspend his campaign and endorse former Vice President Joe BidenJoe BidenHillicon Valley: Biden calls on Facebook to change political speech rules | Dems demand hearings after Georgia election chaos | Microsoft stops selling facial recognition tech to police Trump finalizing executive order calling on police to use ‘force with compassion’ The Hill’s Campaign Report: Biden campaign goes on offensive against Facebook MORE.
“Now he will pour money into Sleepy Joe’s campaign, hoping to save face. It won’t work!” Trump added.
Bloomberg responded with a clip of the duel between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader from “A New Hope,” in which the former utters the famous line, “If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.”

Bloomberg responded almost immediately Thursday to Trump’s video clip with an ad for Biden — paid for by Bloomberg’s former campaign — that used multiple pop culture references to knock the president, followed by the hashtags #DUMPTRUMP and #GOJOE.
