NEW YORK (AP) - New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says there is "no way, no how" that he will run for president of the United States.
Speaking on NBC's "Meet the Press," Bloomberg said in an interview broadcast Sunday that his advisers should "cease-and-desist" with their suggestions that he run.
The Democrat-turned-Republican-turned-independent says he's focused on his job as mayor. He has occasionally been mentioned as a long-shot presidential candidate.
Bloomberg says he wants to leave office having a reputation "as a very good, maybe the greatest mayor ever."
He was elected for a third term in 2009.
During the interview with host David Gregory, Bloomberg answered questions on tax cuts, the economy, immigration and party politics.
