Mike Bloomberg postpones the debate on CNN’s town hall for two days to make improvements after his bleak first crackdown on fellow democratic candidates
- Billionaire attacked the use of confidentiality agreements last week
- Donald Trump called his performance the “worst in the history of debates”
- Former mayor of New York had moved a one-hour session with voters to Wednesday
Mike Bloomberg postponed his CNN town hall debate for two days to make improvements after his shabby first fight against fellow democratic candidates was widely criticized.
The billionaire was attacked by several candidates, including Senator Elizabeth Warren from Massachusetts, who questioned his use of confidentiality agreements to resolve claims of sexual harassment and misconduct.
The incumbent President Donald Trump also weighed in and called his performance “the worst in the history of debates.”
The former mayor of New York has now moved his one-hour question and answer session with voters to Wednesday, after the public whims.

Despite the schedule change, his campaign team said he considered the debate “crucial” and said, “the country cannot afford to let Bernie Sanders skate through another debate without focusing on his extreme record of service.”
No other candidate has asked to postpone his debate.
Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont appears at 9:00 PM, followed by former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 10:00 PM and businessman Tom Steyer at 11:00 AM.
On Wednesday, Bloomberg now appears first at 7:00 pm, followed by former vice president Joe Biden at 8:00 pm, Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar at 9:00 pm and Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren at 10:00 pm.
The public they are confronted with will consist of democratic voters, who will interview every candidate.

Bloomberg’s performance during the last debate was slammed by both Democratic and Republican experts.
Senator Warren began her debate by saying, “I would like to talk about who we meet: a billionaire who calls women” fat men “and” horses with lesbian faces. ” And no, I’m not talking about Donald Trump. I’m talking about Mayor Bloomberg.
“Democrats are not going to win if we have a nominee who has hidden his tax returns in the past, harasses women and supports racist policies such as redlining and stop and search.”
Seated President Donald Trump called it the “worst in the history of debates.”
“He stumbled, stumbled and grossly incompetent,” the president said. ‘If this doesn’t beat him out of the race, nothing will work. Not so easy to do what I did! ”
Bloomberg has sunk $ 464 million in his presidential campaign, triggering criticism and asking if he can buy his way to the White House.
The Donald Trump campaign in 2016 spent more than four times less on $ 94 million.
Bloomberg will rejoin his rivals on Tuesday for the Democratic presidential nomination in South Carolina.
He did not compete in the first four voting states, but is on ballot papers in the series of states that vote on March 3.
The billionaire businessman tries to prevent Sanders from opening a substantial diversion of participants that day.
