Buttigieg: I Know 63 Million People Voted for Trump But They're Still Racist

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?"

Buttigieg didn't hesitate before he responded. 

"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."

Democrats, like Buttigieg, continually say Trump supporters are racist. It's because they fail to understand that Trump supporters come from various backgrounds. Some are white, some are black, some are Hispanic. There are straight supporters, gay supporters. Some supporters were born in the United States while others are naturalized citizens. The point, however, is simple: the policies Trump has implemented – like closing the border and tackling illegal immigration, lowering taxes and removing regulations – has benefited people of every race, creed, religion and gender. When a policy is successful, it transcends across party lines, races, religions and genders.

Buttigieg can call Trump supporters racist all he wants. He's the one who black voters take issue with all while President Trump has delivered record low unemployment rates for blacks and Hispanics.
