On Monday during a campaign event in South Carolina, rising 2020 Democrat star Pete Buttigieg told his audience that America “was never as great as advertised.”
The radical lawmaker instead said that “so many of the solutions are going to come from the communities, like the one where I grew up, which is an industrial Midwest city, which is exactly the kind of city that our current president targeted with a message saying that we can find greatness just by stopping the clock and turning it back and making America great again.”
Just another outlandish claim from a radical Democrat.
Buttigieg hammered President Trump’s Make America Great Again message by saying, “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.”

Check out what the Daily Caller reported:
Buttigieg, who is openly homosexual, did not stipulate whether he considered himself to be marginalized as a member of the LGBTQ community.
The mayor has accused Vice President Mike Pence of having “a problem” with him because of Buttigieg’s sexual orientation: “If me being gay was a choice, it was a choice that was made far, far above my pay grade,” Buttigieg said at an LGBT event. “And that’s the thing I wish the Mike Pences of the world would understand. That if you got a problem with who I am, your problem is not with me — your quarrel, sir, is with my creator.”
However, Pence — who is an evangelical Christian and the former governor of Indiana — worked amicably with the Democratic mayor without any protest from Buttigieg until he decided to seek the Democratic nomination for president.
Buttigieg has also alienated some voters by reversing himself on the Black Lives Matter controversy, having said in 2015 that “all lives matter.”
Just like all the other Democratic 2020 Presidential candidates, Buttigieg is using his campaign to slam President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.
For some odd reason, Buttigieg has made it his personal mission to slander Vice President Pence, accusing him of not accepting of gay people.
In late April, U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell defended the Vice President.
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
“Mayor Pete has been pushing this hate hoax along the lines of Jussie Smollett for a very long time now, several weeks, and I find it really ironic that Mayor Pete stayed silent about this so-called hate hoax on him and others during 2015, 2016, 2017 when Mike Pence was governor,” Grenell said. “There was total silence. It’s ironic that right about now when he’s starting his fundraising apparatus to run for president that he comes up with this idea and this attack.”
“One of the things that really bothers me about this attack is that Mike Pence is a friend of mine. Mike and Karen are great people. They are godly people. They’re followers of Christ. They don’t have hate in their heart for anyone. They know my partner, they have accepted us. You ask me do we agree philosophically on every single issue? No,” Grenelle added.
