WASHINGTON — When President Donald Trump declared Democratic presidential contender Michael Bloomberg to be a “5’4″ mass of dead energy,” those were fighting words.
Bloomberg is not that short.
So say his doctor, people who have stood next to him and varying press accounts of his height from his years as New York City mayor.
Trump’s hits on “Mini Mike” prompted Bloomberg to suggest that the president has a mini-mind. Leaving that aside, Trump’s attack on Bloomberg’s stature played into years of speculation about just how tall he is.
