Failing to make a true dent in the Democratic Party's presidential primary on Super Tuesday, Mike Bloomberg will reassess the race Wednesday, NBC News reported.
But he is still punching.
The news was reiterated by The Associated Press. It said that as the night wore on, the former mayor of New York City appeared to have little to show for the millions upon millions of dollars he has poured into advertising.
And he got called out for that by none other than President Donald Trump, who tweeted that Bloomberg was the night's "biggest loser" by far.
Trump's tweet: "His 'political' consultants took him for a ride. $700 million washed down the drain, and he got nothing for it but the nickname Mini Mike, and the complete destruction of his reputation. Way to go Mike!"
Bloomberg was planning to fly to New York to reassess his campaign, according to a person close to his operation who spoke with AP on condition of anonymity.
Bloomberg, at a campaign rally in West Palm Beach, Florida, on Tuesday, was not without some fight left in him, however. He responded to Trump's persistent attacks on his campaign and his height.
"Where I come from, we measure people from the neck up," Bloomberg said, rejecting Trump's moniker as Mini Mike.
"That's why he keeps attacking us on Twitter," Bloomberg added.
"Clearly, Trump is scared stiff of facing us."
Bloomberg added, if he were to win the presidency, "how about no tweeting from the Oval Office ever again?"
The billionaire's big-budget campaign officially kicked off his race in his first primary states, skipping the first four states.
"No matter how many delegates we win tonight, we have done something no one else thought was possible: In just three months, we've gone from 1% in the polls to being a contender for the Democratic nomination for president," Bloomberg told his rally.
"Tonight we proved something very important: We proved we can win the voters who will decide the general election, and isn't that what this is all about?"
Bloomberg vowed to win back the rust belt states lost to Trump in 2016 with a campaign that is "sensible, workable, and achievable."
"I know you're not used to seeing a New Yorker in Southern Florida in late winter, but unlike the president, I didn't come here to golf, or to reveal classified information to Mar-a-Lago members," Bloomberg said in another shot at Trump near his winter White House.
"I came here because winning in November starts in Florida."
President Trump's middle son fired some early Super Tuesday shots at Bloomberg.
"I think Mini Mike is out after tonight," Eric Trump told Fox News.
"Where is he to be found tonight? I don't think he has a chance of winning any state. I don't think he has a chance of getting to the 15% threshold in many of the states.
"It might be the biggest flop of any campaign in modern history when you spend 500, 600 [million dollars]. My father didn't spend $500 million to win the entire thing. He spent $300 million to win the entire thing – that's to beat the 17 Republicans and go on to beat Hilary Clinton," Trump continued.
"You have this guy who spent $500 million and he's nowhere to be found on Super Tuesday. That's worse than Jeb [Bush]."
