Pete Buttigieg rips Trump’s evangelical Christian supporters: 'The hypocrisy is unbelievable'
Appearing on Meet the Press South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg took a shot at President Donald Trump’s evangelical Christian supporters for ignoring his multitude of sins, saying they are hypocrites.
Speaking with host Chuck Todd, the possible Democratic presidential contender got right to the point.
“It’s something that really frustrates me because the hypocrisy is unbelievable,” he told the NBC host. “Here you have somebody who not only acts in a way that is not consistent with anything that I hear in scripture or in church, where it’s about lifting up the least among us and taking care of strangers, which is another word for immigrants, and making sure that you’re focusing your effort on the poor.”
He added that Trump needs to learn about “humbling yourself before others.”
