During a town hall in Reno, Nevada, in advance of the state’s Saturday caucuses, the Democratic presidential candidate was asked what he would do if he beat Trump in November and the president insisted the results were a hoax and he refused to step down.
Buttigieg’s initial response: “I guess if he’s willing to do chores, I guess we could work something out.”
He then explained that Americans who didn’t want Trump to have a second term had a duty to vote in November.
“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 said. “It’s got to be a win so big that Senate Republicans are reunited with their consciences, and only a political shockwave can do that.”
