Even though Mayor Michael Bloomberg told Barack Obama’s potential competitors Tuesday to get along with the president, billionaire Donald Trump showed that he wasn’t interested in playing nice.

“We should be behind this president, even if you’re a candidate who’s going to run against him, which I am not,” Bloomberg said during an interview with PBS’ Travis Smiley that aired Tuesday. “We need this president to be successful because our futures are all tied to the success of America.”

The real estate mogul, who has recently become the face of the birthers, didn’t seem to care, this time suggesting that the president should release his grades and test scores.

“Everything that everybody seems to know is that he was a terrible student,” Trump said on “Good Day New York” Tuesday, without citing any specific sources.

“Maybe you should look at me too,” said Trump, who is considering a presidential run. “But I was a good student, so I don’t mind.”
