Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg said in a campaign ad released Wednesday that he led New York City through 9/11, though he did not take over as mayor of the city until several months after the devastating attacks.
“I led a complex, diverse city through 9/11, and I have common sense plans to move America away from chaos to progress,” Bloomberg said in a 30-second campaign ad called “It Won’t Work.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Bloomberg, a billionaire media mogul, took over as mayor on Jan. 1, 2002, succeeding Rudy Giuliani.
WATCH the ad in the video below:
Tom Adams shared a photo of Rudy Giuliani, who was mayor of New York City at the time of the 9/11 attack, and tweeted, “Funny, I covered that story from start to finish and I only remember one politician on the street everyday in the thick of it all. And it wasn’t Mike Bloomberg.”

On the debate stage Wednesday night, Bloomberg changed the wording slightly, saying, “I knew what to do after 9/11 and brought the city back stronger than ever.”
I was a mayor – I know how to run a complicated city.
I’m a manager – I brought the city back stronger than ever after 9/11.
