He stopped short of calling anyone who votes for Trump racist. 

Buttigieg’s comments come days after Trump told voters at a New Hampshire rally they “have no choice” but to vote for him in 2020. 

“If you look at the numbers, basically, what he’s saying is, all right, I want you to look the other way on the racism, tolerate the negativity, accept the instability of my administration, because I am going to deliver for you job growth almost as good as the Obama years,” Buttigieg said.

“That’s what his argument amounts to right now.  And it’s part of the reason why he’s unpopular.”

Buttigieg has previously called Trump a white nationalist.
