Media mogul and Liberty Media Chairman John Malone said Thursday that The Trump White House “is chaos” and the president isn’t the right person to lead the United States.

“Look: I think a lot of the things Trump has tried to do — identifying problems and trying to solve them — has been great. I just don’t think he’s the right guy to do it,” Malone told CNBC.

“Half the people that he’s hired and thrown under the bus are now trying to kill him. I mean, what kind of thing is that? It’s chaos,” Malone said. “I just don’t think [Trump’s] the right guy to do it. He just doesn’t build a team: I think that’s the No. 1 problem,” he added.

Malone said he would vote for former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg in the 2020 presidential election despite his own reservations as a pronounced libertarian. Malone said he’d still favor billionaire Bloomberg even though he doesn’t know if the former New York mayor “has much of a chance.”

Meanwhile, Michael Bloomberg has taken another step toward launching a Democratic bid for president, the Associated Press reported.

The former New York City mayor, who became a Democrat just last year, filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission on Thursday to formally create a presidential campaign committee. The move legally allows him to begin raising and spending money on a 2020 campaign, although his team says he’s yet to make a final decision.

A formal announcement is expected in the coming days.

The 77-year-old Bloomberg is one of the richest people in the world. His estimated net worth exceeds $50 billion, and he’s already committed to spending more than $100 million to help defeat President Donald Trump in 2020 whether he runs or not.

Bloomberg’s enormous wealth, his ties to Wall Street, and his status as a former Republican could make it difficult for him to win support among traditional Democratic primary voters. Should he run, his advisers have charted an unconventional strategy that calls for him to bypass the first four states on the primary calendar and make an aggressive play for the so-called Super Tuesday states that vote in early March.

For his part, Trump has surged in the latest Emerson College poll, now leading former Vice President Joe Biden in a hypothetical matchup.

Trump trailed his leading Democratic challengers by 2 points a month ago, but he now leads Biden 51%-49%, a four-point turnaround amid the House Democrats' impeachment inquiry.

The hypothetical matchup between Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Trump is deadlocked at 50%-50%. Also, Trump pulled within a point of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., 50%-49%.
