(AmericanProsperity.com) – Newly revealed audio from a 2015 speech by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is threatening to undermine his chances with minorities in the Democratic primary.
In the audio, Bloomberg offered a detailed and highly offensive defense of the controversial police policy known as “stop and frisk.” He also acknowledged that it targeted minority communities in order to get guns and drugs off the streets.
Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale posted a short clip of the audio.

Bloomberg recently defended his actions to reduce gun violence, but said that the way he went about it was a mistake.
“Today, I want you to know that I realize that back then I was wrong,” he said. “And I’m sorry.”
