Buttigieg Eager to Win Over Iowa Trump Supporters

Trump supporters are a most frequent target of Democrats and others who obsessively loathe the 45th president.

Time and time again, leftists have referred to Trump-supporting Americans as racists, homophobes, bigots, sexists, etc. Over the course of the president’s first term in office, online videos of Trump supporters being attacked, having drinks thrown on them, and worse have surfaced across social media. Democrats have been very clear in their declaration of open season on anyone who dissents from them.

One critic of Trump supporters has been 2020 Democrat and former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg. During July 2019, Buttigieg wrote off Trump supporters as “a lot of committed racists” who would never vote for him. Two months later, the now-former mayor declared that anyone who supports President Trump’s immigration policies is a racist. Just last month, Buttigieg also claimed that Trump-supporting Americans are “at best, looking the other way on racism.”

As the stakes get higher and higher in the 2020 election and as the Iowa caucuses approach, Buttigieg is now attempting to garner support from supposedly-racist Trump supporters in Iowa, reports Breitbart News.

Why Buttigieg Wants Trump Supporters’ Backing

In a nutshell, Buttigieg’s interest in getting elected is at the core of his desire to win over Trump supporters. Per the admission of a Buttigieg campaign aide via a press memo, the 2020 Democrat feels compelled to “win back some of those voters.” The former South Bend mayor has previously talked of “building a broad coalition” and stated that all who feel his message resonates with them are welcome.

At this time, Buttigieg is still fighting to improve his standing in Iowa. The state’s caucuses commence next week which is why the 2020 Democrat has spent so much time campaigning in Iowa counties where residents shifted from Obama voters to Trump voters. In an additional memo excerpt, Buttigieg’s campaign aide describes him as “able to connect and resonate” with voters throughout Iowa.

Perhaps the ex-South Bend mayor would have done well to think of all this before repeatedly slamming Trump supporters as racists.

Shifting Gears

Branding Trump supporters as racists and then attempting to win them over for political gain is the Democrat way through and through.

Time and time again, the left fails to realize that not everyone who disagrees with them is a monster; however, those who make their bed must lay in it. Since Buttigieg views Trump supporters as “committed racists,” surely his campaign should thrive without backing from Iowans who appreciate this president.

There is not, nor has there ever been, a shred of evidence to support the claim that Trump supporters are racists. “Racist” is now a buzzword that the left uses when they’re angry, flustered, or failing to get their way. Hopefully, Iowan Trump supporters will remember what Buttigieg truly thinks of them.
