Buttigieg says Trump can ‘do chores’ if he’s unwilling to leave White House

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg joked on Monday about what he would do if President Donald Trump is unwilling to leave the White House after a 2020 loss.

During a campaign event in Reno, a voter worried that Trump might call his loss a hoax if the election is close.

“I mean, if he won’t leave, I guess if he’s willing to do chores, we can work something out,” the candidate said to laughter and cheers.

Buttigieg argued that the best way to prevent Trump from “cheating” is to win by a significant margin.

“At the end of the day, there’s only one president,” he explained. “This is one of the reason we not just eke out a win, not just club everybody over the head and hope that we get to 51% and our Twitter followers outnumber your Twitter followers and we somehow piece together a squeaker.”

“I think we want to set a goal of winning big enough that this election is way beyond cheating distance and that Trumpism goes into the history books too,” he added. “It’s got to be a win so big that Senate Republicans are reunited with their consciences. Only a political shockwave can do that.”

Schumer goes off on Trump for muzzling the CDC: Anyone who says to drink bleach is not a ‘stable genius’

Published

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Wednesday blasted President Donald Trump's administration for reportedly shelving a Centers from Disease Control (CDC) plan to deal with the novel coronavirus pandemic.

"Last week, Americans learned that the Trump White House had blocked release by the Centers for Disease Control of a document that contained guidance for safely reopening up the country," Schumer explained during a speech on the Senate floor. "Making the wrong decision about when, where and how to reopen could result in loss of precious life that could be otherwise saved and in the occurrence of a COVID second wave that, God forbid, could be worse than the first."
