The former mayor of New York and 2020 presidential hopeful, Michael Bloomberg, filed on Tuesday to appear on the Democratic primary ballot in Arkansas.
Bloomberg was greeted off the 2nd-floor elevator lobby of the State Capitol by Democratic Party of Arkansas Chairman, Michael John Gray, where he filed with the Democratic Party.
A flock of media personnel and bystanders followed the billionaire presidential candidate as he walked across the rotunda to complete his filing.
Bloomberg briefly spoke and answered questions afterward, saying that he was “upset” with the direction that the United States was headed, adding that Americans “don’t talk to each other more.”
Bloomberg announced his last-minute candidacy for president just days ago, despite rejecting the postulation that he may run earlier this year.
The presidential primary in Arkansas is on March 3, 2020.
