To beat President Trump, Mike Bloomberg wants to be candidate Trump.

The state of play: Axios visited Bloomberg's new campaign HQ in Times Square yesterday, and we were struck by how much his 1,000+-person team is learning from — while trying to surpass — the Trump campaigns of 2016 and 2020.

Michael Bloomberg's 2020 campaign is releasing a digital ad on Wednesday that goes after President Trump for his "empty promises" on infrastructure.

Why it matters: Bloomberg is continuing to spend his unlimited funds on ads that question Trump's governing abilities, which have prompted Trump to tweet negatively about his billionaire rival on several occasions. The ads highlight an issue on many voters' minds while impeachment is consuming Washington.
