After an abysmal showing on Super Tuesday, multibillionaire former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg ended his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for President, endorsing former Vice President Joe Biden.

Bloomberg was heavily criticized after deciding to run, because many felt his time and resources would be better spent on more viable candidates.

With his candidacy in the rear view mirror, Bloomberg signaled with a clip from Star Warsthat he's ready to do just that.

It started in response to a Twitter screed from President Donald Trump—who refers to Bloomberg as "Mini Mike."

Bloomberg's response promised that, for Trump, the worst was yet to come.

The mayor posted a clip from the final battle of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader in Star Wars IV: A New Hope.

Vader is ultimately victorious in the duel, but Obi-Wan gives a final, apt warning:

"You can't win, Darth. If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine."

With an absurd level of wealth at approximately $60 billion, Bloomberg could unlock a war chest of political ads, opposition research, and other forms to harm Donald Trump in a general election.

People took the clip as a sign of things to come.

The Democratic primary isn't over yet, and November is getting nearer.

Kamala Harris Brought In More Money In Her 'Opening Weekend' Than 'Twisters' Did—And Wow

Vice President Kamala Harris raised more than $81 million in 24 hours after officially launching her election campaign—an amount that surpasses even the opening weekend haul of the blockbuster movie Twisters.

The movie made $80.5 million over its opening weekend—just shy of what Harris raised in the immediate aftermath since President Joe Biden dropped out of the race and endorsed her to be his successor.
