Former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg has repeatedly said those who support President Donald Trump are racist. CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday asked Buttigieg if he regretted making those comments.
“Republicans have been seizing, including in a new Trump ad, a statement you made that ‘Anyone who supported this president is, at best, looking the other way on racism.’ You’ve also said that on my show,” Tapper explained. “That’s almost 63 million Americans who you’re painting with a pretty broad brush. Do you regret saying that at all?” . . .
“No. I’m very concerned about the racial division that this president has fostered,” the 2020 Democratic candidate explained. “And I’m meeting a lot of voters who are no longer willing to look the other way on that, looking for a new political home.”
