trashes Bloomberg in pre-Super Bowl interview

President seems to have former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in his mind at the moment.

In three tweets early Sunday morning, repeatedly mocked the Democratic presidential candidate’s height. And in a Fox News interview set to be released ahead of the Super Bowl, continued that train of thought.

“Uh, very little," told Fox News host Sean Hannity, an informal adviser of the president, when asked about Bloomberg. "I just think of little. You know, now he wants a box for the debates to stand on. OK, it's OK. There’s nothing wrong. You can be short."

went on to criticize the Democratic National Committee for its new rules for the Feb. 19 primary debate, which will no longer require candidates to meet a donor threshold to participate. Past Democratic debates have required participants to have hundreds of thousands of donors, and some candidates have not made the debate stage as a result. Bloomberg, one of the wealthiest people on the planet, is funding his own late-entry campaign and is not seeking donors. 

“The other thing that’s very interesting," told Hannity, "Cory Booker and all these people couldn’t get any of the things that Bloomberg is getting now. I think it’s very unfair for the Democrats. But I would love to run against Bloomberg. I would love it.”

Both and Bloomberg are running expensive ads in Sunday's Super Bowl game between the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs, and Yahoo Sports reported that former Vice President Joe Biden will do so as well in the Iowa market ahead of Monday's caucuses.

has repeatedly commented on Bloomberg's ad campaign.

"Many of the ads you are watching were paid for by Mini Mike Bloomberg. He is going nowhere, just wasting his money," he wrote early Sunday morning. "Mini Mike Bloomberg ads are purposely wrong," he wrote last month. "Mini Mike Bloomberg is spending a lot of money on False Advertising," he tweeted a few days before that.
