Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg fired back at President Donald Trump’s recent comment about being “absolutely fine” with the mayor’s gay marriage, sarcastically saying “that’s nice” while pointing out the administration’s poor record on LGBT citizens.
Buttigieg was on the campaign trail in Des Moines, Iowa, Friday evening at an event labeled as a book club discussion about “Shortest Way Home,” which he released earlier this year. But it was his comments on the Trump administration’s record on LGBT rights that might spark the most interest.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Even though they’re paying lip service to the idea of — like the president was asked about my marriage, so he could have the opportunity to say he’s fine with it,” Buttigieg said. “That’s nice.”
Trump was asked in a Fox News interview on Thursday about Buttigieg appearing on stage at campaign events with his husband, Chasten.
“I think it’s absolutely fine, I do,” Trump responded. “I think it’s great. I think that’s something that perhaps some people will have a problem with; I have no problem with it whatsoever.”
