In an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg -- who has jumped to the forefront of potential Democratic presidential nominees -- did not rule out seeing President Donald Trump prosecuted after he leaves office.

During his appearance on "State of the Union," the Democrat discussed his drive for the nomination and was asked by the host about comments made by Sen.

They thought the country was several years into a recovery and the national aggregate unemployment data they had commissioned confirmed it. But nobody lives or votes in the aggregate. And it wasn’t until Trump flipped the 200 counties that Obama had carried twice, that the corporate news media started paying some attention.
