South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg called supporters of President Donald Trump who chanted “send them back”, referring to “The Squad” of Democrat congresswomen who seem to hate America, a group of “committed racists” and said he has no intention of trying to court their vote in a general election.
Adam Wren, a POLITICO content editor, says Buttigieg called supporters of President Trump “committed racists” in an interview, and said he has accepted he will never get the vote of Trump supporters in a general election.
“I asked @PeteButtigieg whether he wanted to win over Trump voters who chanted ‘send her back’ last night,” wrote Wren.
According to Wren, Buttigieg responded that “No, the reality is there are a lot of committed racists whose vote I’m never going to get and that’s alright,” and continued “there are a lot of people who simply voted to burn the house now.”
