WASHINGTON (AP) -

Michael Bloomberg says he will "think about" whether to endorse either of the two presidential candidates likely to face off in the November election, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

The billionaire former New York mayor says, "I'm not sure what I'll do."

But he says only three of the candidates this year had the skills to "run the railroad" as president: Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Clinton.

Bloomberg earlier this year decided not to pursue the White House as an independent, and in announcing that decision blasted Trump for running "the most divisive and demagogic presidential campaign I can remember."

He now says he will spend "nowhere near as much" donating to the presidential campaigns as he will on down-ballot matchups. He has tended to back mostly Democrats as he focuses on issues such as gun control and stopping climate change.

Bloomberg was making the comments Wednesday at the SALT Conference of finance industry leaders being held in Las Vegas.
