Democratic 2020 Candidate Pete Buttigieg: America 'Was Never As Great As Advertised'


South Bend, Indiana Mayor and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg touted a pointedly anti-Trump message Monday, telling a crowd in South Carolina that America “was never as great as advertised.”

“So many of the solutions, I believe, are gonna come from our communities -communities like the one where I grew up, which is an industrial mid-western city," Buttigieg said.

“That is exactly the kind of place that our current president targeted with a message saying that we could find greatness by just stopping the clock and turning it back and ‘making America great again,’ when that past that he is promising to return us to was never as great as advertised – especially for marginalized Americans – and there’s no going back anyway,” he continued.

Buttigieg, an openly gay candidate, has made a platform out of pushing a heavily progressive agenda, as well as taking aim at Vice President Mike Pence's religious beliefs and stance on traditional marriage.
