Buttigieg in Iowa


The former South Bend, Ind. mayor spoke of values he said he could use to unite the country, such as combating climate change, religion, work and democracy.

Protecting the country’s future begins with national security and confronting climate change, Buttigieg said. He added that religion should not be used as a reason to discriminate.

“God does not belong to an American [political] party,” Buttigieg said.

Buttigieg said the “scientific deadline” for changing the path of climate change is 2023.

“The political deadline is 2020; there cannot be a president that does not believe in climate change,” Buttigieg said.
