NEW YORK (AP) — New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Sunday there is “no way, no how” that he will run for president of the United States.

Speaking on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Mr. 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 occasionally has been mentioned as a long-shot presidential candidate.

Mr. Bloomberg said 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, Mr. Bloomberg answered questions on tax cuts, the economy, immigration and party politics.
