Democratic presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg opened a campaign office in Boerum Hill on Monday. The comments came in the immediate aftermath of the release of the audio recording, in which Bloomberg defends stop and frisk as sensible policy to stop murders in the city, which he says were coming nearly entirely from the African-American community.

The billionaire and former NY mayor made the comments at a 2015 appearance at the Aspen Institute, as part of an overall defence of his support for the controversial "stop and frisk" policing tactic that has been found to disproportionately affect minorities.

"The way you get the guns out of the kids' hands is to throw them up against the walls and frisk them", Bloomberg said in the recording. He has pledged to spend a sizable portion of his personal fortune to defeat President Donald Trump in the general election, whether it's through his own campaign committee or outside groups.

A new poll places Mr Bloomberg at third place in the crowded Democratic field.

Bloomberg entered the race extremely late - announcing his presidential bid in November - and is skipping the Iowa caucuses, New Hampshire primary, Nevada caucuses and SC primary - the four early voting states that kick off the nominating calendar. WTVT-TV reported. That protestor was also booed by the crowd as he was led out, and Bloomberg reacted by saying, "Just wanted to thank him for making me feel like I was at home".

Also criticizing Bloomberg was Tom Steyer, a fellow billionaire seeking the Democratic nomination. He said: "I should have done it faster and sooner". Of particular concern to many critics are Bloomberg's actions as the Republican mayor of New York City, when he was a proponent of targeted policing in minority neighborhoods, a position that puts him far out of the Democratic mainstream. But Biden lost in Iowa and trails in New Hampshire and as his candidacy has become imperiled, recent polling suggests he has lost some African American support.

"I apologized for the practice and the pain that it caused", he said Wednesday.

Since throwing his hat in the ring in November, Bloomberg, who is self-financing his campaign, has poured about $350 million into television, online and radio spots.

He took credit for New York City programs that he said helped "young men of color stay on track for success" and improved "a school system that had been neglecting and underfunding schools in black and Latino communities for too long".

Although Bloomberg apologized for supporting the controversial policing practice a year ago, he came under fire for it after the 2015 audio of him defending it surfaced earlier this week.

"Mike Bloomberg's remarks in the video are extremely disturbing".

"So I'm not afraid of Donald Trump and that's why he keeps tweeting about me", Bloomberg said.

Dixon said earlier this year that he believes Vermont Sen. Trump called Bloomberg a "LOSER who has money but can't debate", before adding "He reminds me of a tiny version of Jeb "Low Energy" Bush, but Jeb has more political skill and has treated the Black community much better than Mini!"
