Billionaire media mogul and former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg said yesterday he had changed his voter registration to Democrat, fueling speculation he will run for president in 2020.

Bloomberg, New York City's mayor from 2002 to 2013, announced on Instagram Wednesday he's re-registered as a Democrat - accompanied with a photograph of him signing official forms.

He later became an Independent.

Bloomberg said via Instagram, "At key points in US history, one of the two parties has served as a bulwark against those who threaten our Constitution".

On Instagram, many people commenting on his post seemed elated at the idea of Bloomberg, who has reportedly considered running for the nation's highest office in the past, making a run for the presidency.

But he has not yet made a final decision.

Bloomberg, who served as Mayor of NY for three terms, has had a variety of party affiliations throughout the years.

Former Mayor of New York Micheal Bloomberg has been a political independent since 2007.

Bloomberg has used his fortune, which Forbes magazine has pegged at $51.8 billion, to push a number of liberal causes including efforts to tackle global warming and gun deaths. "You got my vote if you run for president, we need someone like you!" another person wrote.

"Right now, I'm only focused on the midterms", Bloomberg said.

Bloomberg has thrown money and support behind Democrats and is attacking Republicans on abortion and gun policies.

Mr. Bloomberg, formally an independent, has changed parties several times over the past two decades. "So if you ran, yeah, you'd have to run as a Democrat". His advisers told the Washington Post this month, amid the contentious fight over the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, that he would spend an additional $20 million to help Democrats retake the U.S. Senate.
