Michael Bloomberg ends US presidential campaign
Michael Bloomberg has ended his bid for the White House after a poor showing on Super Tuesday.
"Three months ago, I entered the race for president to defeat Donald Trump. Today, I am leaving the race for the same reason," he said.
Mr Bloomberg, a former mayor of New York City, has spent more than half a billion dollars in the race to become the Democratic Party's nominee.
He said he would now support former Vice-President Joe Biden.
"I've always believed that defeating Donald Trump starts with uniting behind the candidate with the best shot to do it. After yesterday's vote, it is clear that candidate is my friend and a great American, Joe Biden," Mr Bloomberg said in his statement.
Our of the 14 states which voted on Tuesday, the billionaire only managed to win in American Samoa.
