Mike Bloomberg's presidential campaign is defending the former New York City mayor's record as a chief executive, saying he has the experience to deal with what could be a U.S. outbreak of the coronavirus — and added that the Trump administration's budget cuts are putting American lives at risk.

"Managing a crisis is what Mike Bloomberg does," the narrator says in a new 30-second TV ad for Bloomberg's presidential campaign. "In the aftermath of 9/11, he steadied and rebuilt America’s largest city, oversaw emergency response to natural disasters, upgraded hospital preparedness to manage health crises, and he's funding cutting-edge research to contain epidemics."

A CDC official on Tuesday warned of an imminent coronavirus pandemic that could create a "significant disruption" in Americans' lives.

According to the New York Post, Bloomberg's campaign accused President Donald Trump of slashing the budget at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in "reckless" fashion.

"With the virus officially hitting the U.S. and spreading, Americans are becoming increasingly worried for their health and safety — but because of President Trump's reckless cuts to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's funding and his senseless elimination of protective measures put in place following the last pandemic Ebola virus outbreak, the U.S. is underprepared for coronavirus," the campaign said.

"Trump is putting American lives at risk every day, ignoring science, claiming the virus will 'miraculously' disappear by April and relying on 'warm weather' to end the spread of the virus. It is clearer than ever that the country needs a leader with real experience managing a crisis."
