“We have a young man, Buttigieg,” Trump said, before repeating: “Boot-edge-edge. They say edge-edge.” “He’s got a great chance, doesn’t he? He’ll be great representing us against President Xi of China,” said the POTUS during the Panama City Beach event, noting that he would like to be present at this meeting. Trump’s jibe came after Buttigieg, currently the Mayor of South Bend, Indiana, argued that he has more government experience than Mr. Trump. “That might be a low bar, but I also have more executive government experience than the Vice President, and I have more military experience than anybody who’s walked into that office on day one since George HW Bush,” said Buttigieg, who understands that his last name is rather hard to remember and pronounce, but in Malta, where his father came from, it is very common. “Dad came to America in the 1970s and became a citizen; he married my mother, an Army brat and umpteenth-generation Hoosier, and the two of them settled in South Bend, Indiana, shortly before I was born,” the politician shared.
