Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Tuesday that President Donald Trump needed to "stop tweeting" and let the Russia investigations remove any cloud over his administration.
"I didn't vote for Donald Trump, who is a very nice guy, but who I don't think is the right person to be president of the United States," the former three-term mayor told Anderson Cooper on CNN. "But Hillary [Clinton] never got a real message out.
"I'm not here to endorse her," Bloomberg cautioned.
He said Clinton's message was "don't vote for that guy and the gender issue, whereas Donald had a saying: 'Make America great again.'
"I don't know what 'again' means, but 'America.' That's patriotic," Bloomberg said. "Slogans matter.
"I never understood, given most of the media, why Hillary couldn't find somebody to give her a good tag line."
Regarding the Moscow probes, Bloomberg told Cooper "if there's an allegation you have to have a competent independent investigation.
"It is very difficult to govern when there's a cloud around you.
"The president just has to get it out of his mind, stop tweeting and focus on running the government and let the investigation go on.
"Without that, he'll always have this problem," he said. "He says there's nothing to it, so I take him at his word.
"He's got to prove there's nothing there. You can't just say 'there's nothing there.'"
