Pete Buttigieg Applauded After Calling Out Trump For 'Echoing The Vocabulary Of Dictators' At Fox News Town Hall

Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg visited Fox News ahead of the Iowa Caucuses to speak with voters about his vision for America and try to make the case as to why he should be elected next November.


One of his answers, aimed at President Trump, elicited a particularly excited round of applause from the audience.

Asked about how he would handle the situation in the Middle East, Buttigieg answered:

"We have to decide what our priorities are and raise the bar for the use of force. What we need to do is build up, not tear up our international partnerships."
"American lives depend on relationships with our allies. We shouldn't can doing any of this alone. We shouldn't have to be doing any of this alone."

Buttigieg also noted:

"But that only works if we are authentically living up to them and that starts right at home, because how can we be a force for stability and human rights and democracy and freedom abroad if our own president is echoing the vocabulary of dictators, saying unfavourable coverage is the work of the 'enemy of the people?'"
"We've got to get our own house in order, and then we'll be in a much better position for global leadership."

Though that moment went very well for Buttigieg, it sadly wasn't a flawless event.




Nonetheless, there were many who felt Buttigieg's town hall had been a success.




Buttigieg likely won a few fans over with his answers.



Only time will tell whether Buttigieg's appearance will pay off in the Iowa caucuses.
