  • -You were mayor for 12 years.

  • -Well, it was supposed to be for four and then eight.

  • But somehow or other, the law got changed

  • in the middle of the night. I don't know how it happened.

  • -Oh, my God! You know exactly

  • how it happened, yeah. -We had 12 years, yeah.

  • -Well, you accomplished a lot. -Well, everybody says,

  • "You did more in the third term than the first and the second,"

  • but that's not true.

  • It just takes a long time to do big things.

  • And so what we delivered in the third term

  • was started in the first or the second term.

  • But it just takes a long time to pass laws

  • and fight legal challenges and build a constituency

  • and raise the money. And in government

  • where they have these short terms for mayors,

  • a lot of cities have two-year terms.

  • It's ridiculous 'cause they can't get anything done.

  • -Yeah, I mean, but in those years,

  • you got pretty major things done.

  • I mean, the no smoking in bars and restaurants.

  • -Nobody ever would have thought.

  • And that's spread all over Europe and Asia

  • and Latin America. It really is amazing.

  • -It was amazing.

  • I didn't think that it would work.

  • -Nobody wanted a picture

  • when I was walking down the streets anymore.

  • But I did get a lot of one-finger waves.

  • [ Laughter ] -Yeah, you certainly did.

  • What do you think your -- What do you think your

  • greatest accomplishments were when you were mayor here?

  • -Well, life expectancy in New York City

  • is now three years greater than it was

  • when I came into office,

  • and three years greater than the national average.

  • So, if you think about it,

  • if you have friends anyplace in the country

  • and you want them to live longer,

  • bring them to New York. -Wow, I didn't think about that.

  • -I can't guarantee any one will live three years longer,

  • but if you have enough friends, it will work.

  • -Yeah. [ Light laughter ]

  • What are your key issues now for your presidential campaign?

  • -Well, everybody cares about public health,

  • everybody cares about guns,

  • everybody cares about homeless people in the streets.

  • People are worried about security internationally.

  • But I think any -- The thing that most people

  • are disturbed about is the lack of consistency

  • in Washington -- the coming and going,

  • and the lack of focusing on climate change,

  • which could kill us all. -Yeah.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • What about gun control?

  • Maybe you can talk a little bit about that.

  • -Look, there's a federal law that says

  • you can't buy a gun if you are a minor,

  • have psychiatric problems, or have a criminal record.

  • Every gun store basically follows the law.

  • The sales on the Internet and sales at gun shows

  • aren't covered, because those came after the law was written,

  • and nobody's been willing to change the law.

  • So what we've got to do is have,

  • for gun shows and for Internet sales,

  • the same tests as for gun stores:

  • can't buy a gun if you're a minor;

  • can't buy a gun if you have psychiatric problems;

  • can't buy a gun if you have a criminal record.

  • And if you do that, you would save

  • a dramatic, large number of lives.

  • There's 20 states that have already done it.

  • The suicide rate's a lot lower,

  • the murder rate's a lot lower in all of those.

  • And the trouble is, the other 30 states haven't yet passed it.

  • And so that's what you could as president.

  • I think you probably could force a national law.

  • And if you did that, you would save...

  • This year, there's going to be 19,000 suicides

  • with illegal guns and

  • 12,000 homicides with illegal guns.

  • And you could stop a lot of that.

  • It's just -- Only country in the world doing it.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • -You were talking about public health.

  • Anything -- The number-one things

  • in your brain right now for public...

  • -Well, stopping smoking is one of them.

  • Doing things like having smoke detectors

  • in your apartment or house

  • so that you get out quickly in the case of fire.

  • Putting bars on windows if you live in a high building

  • and you have young kids, so they don't fall out.

  • Better restaurant sanitation in the kitchens.

  • You have these -- We have in New York

  • a sign on the window -- "A," "B," "C" or "D" --

  • depending on how clean your kitchen is.

  • That's saved a lot of lives

  • because people don't come down with salmonella.

  • Better traffic signs so you don't have traffic deaths.

  • I mean, it's a whole bunch of things

  • that contribute to making things healthier.

  • And we, for the first time in history --

  • people are dying from things

  • that are under their own control.

  • It used to be that you died from --

  • you inherited it, you caught something

  • like, you know, malaria or something like that.

  • Now it's because of behavior.

  • And you can control these things.

  • And just getting people to pay attention --

  • don't be obese and don't smoke,

  • and you'll live an awful lot longer.

  • Just those two things would make most of the difference.

  • -Before we go, what is the message

  • that you want to send to everyone,

  • why you're running for president?

  • -Replace Donald Trump...

  • [ Applause ]

  • ...pull the country together,

  • And make the country's government work.

  • And that's what, I argue, I bring to the party,

  • because in New York City,

  • the government worked for 12 years.

  • You can do the same thing at a national level.

  • And we can actually implement

  • the things that Congress keeps passing

  • and they never fund,

  • and nobody ever does anything about it.

  • It's time to say, no, we're gonna get our lunch eaten

  • by China and other countries around the world.

  • Our educational system used to be in the top 10.

  • Today, it's barely in the top 50.

  • In a world where education is going to be more important,

  • you just cannot do this.

  • You'll never end poverty unless you fix education.

  • One thing we should focus on. [ Cheers and applause ]

  • -Michael Bloomberg, thank you so much for coming.

-You were mayor for 12 years.
