NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The Trump campaign announced on Monday that it will no longer credential reporters from Bloomberg News -- which is owned by Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg -- for its rallies and other events, claiming the global news organization is biased against the president. 

"Since they have declared their bias openly, the Trump campaign will no longer credential representatives of Bloomberg News for rallies or other campaign events," Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement.

He continued, "We will determine whether to engage with individual reporters or answer inquiries from Bloomberg News on a case-by-case basis. This will will remain the policy of the Trump campaign until Bloomberg News publicly rescinds its decision." 

In explaining the move, Parscale said, "Bloomberg News has declared that they won't investigate their boss or his Democrat competitors many of whom are current holders of high office., but will continue critical reporting on President Trump."
