The relationship between President Donald Trump and Michael Bloomberg fizzled once Trump ran for office, and Bloomberg, the former New York mayor, says now the president's performance has led him to seriously consider a 2020 presidential run, according to The Washington Post.

"My objection to Donald Trump is the way he's filling his current role, in terms of representing the country, in terms of representing the public," Bloomberg said during an interview that took place in the first-primary state of New Hampshire. "There's an attitude, and a style, and lack of civility that I think is bad for the country, and I find offensive."

Bloomberg's tune was quite different in 2013 when he hailed Trump for building a golf course in the Bronx.

"If there is anybody who has changed this city, it is Donald Trump," Bloomberg said. "He really has done an amazing thing, and this is another part of it."

Trump praised Bloomberg in return: "You have been a great mayor. You really have. I mean, this guy is fantastic."

Trump told the Post their relationship went haywire when launched his presidential bid in 2015.

"I really liked Michael and I think he liked me, but it went really strangely haywire once I ran for office," President Trump said.

He added Bloomberg "probably doesn't like my policies. I'm for guns, he's against guns . . . A developer is a lot different than as a candidate."

The two have gone back and forth criticizing each other since.
