Mayor Pete Buttigieg on President Donald Trump: ‘I’m pretty sure he deserves to be impeached, Congress has to decide procedurally on what to do//Crimson Tazvinzwa
While campaigning in New Hampshire on Friday, 2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg responded to the Mueller report, saying he’s “pretty sure” President Trump “deserves to be impeached.” The mayor of South Bend, Indiana, then called on Congress to take action.
Buttigieg says “First of all, I believe that the President deserves to be impeached” and that “No one aught to be above the law.”
Raoul Solarino//Buttigieg is by far the most brilliant candidate running for president. The sad thing is, this country is far too stupid to recognize that. If the reality of our Democracy is that the best-qualified person actually doesn’t always win then our democracy is seriously flawed. Mayor Pete is a gift that we don’t deserve because most Americans will never be able to appreciate what he could mean for turning this country around. And so, he will be swept to the sidelines and we will continue as a nation, to be divided and ignorant.
The 2020 Democrats were on the campaign trail over the weekend, unveiling new policies and positions. Though Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts was the only contender to call for impeaching President Trump, Pete Buttigieg agreed that Trump “deserves to be impeached.”
