Presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg holds town hall in Salt Lake City


Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg said addressing climate change and reforming the criminal justice system would be two of his focuses as president during a campaign stop in Salt Lake City.

At a town hall on Monday evening, Buttigieg said he is “ready to take on” President Donald Trump and “build a political movement that will speak to all Americans.”

Buttigieg said he, like other Democratic candidates, has the goal of ensuring the United States is carbon neutral by 2050.

“We’ve got to invite everybody to be part of the solution,” he said, including farmers and industrial workers.
