In an editorial published by CNN this week, longtime reporter and anchor Sam Donaldson announced — for the first time in his career — his pick ahead of a U.S. presidential primary.
“When I retired seven years ago, I fully expected to remain a political observer,” he wrote, adding that “there is too much at stake” for him to maintain neutrality in the 2020 race.
Donaldson went on to pick former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg as the “most qualified to be president and most able to defeat Donald Trump.”
Defeating the Republican incumbent, he added, “is an imperative for all of us, if we are to remain a nation of laws, rooted in the Constitution, dedicated to freedom and shared community that has made America the envy of the world.”
