This is quite a weird thing to say especially since, he’s not even close to winning…
Mayor Pete Buttigieg has not yet secured the Democratic presidential nomination, but he is already considering making up his presidential cabinet.
Buttigieg spoke on Wednesday in response to an audience request about his potential presidential cabinet during a town hall in Ames, Iowa.
“My cabinet will be at least half, or majority woman,” he said as women supporters in the audience cheered and applauded.
Buttigieg said a presidential cabinet was among a president’s most important decisions and noted that his mayoral office and campaign had a similar principle to include diversity.
“By the way, not just because that’s a good policy on empowering women but because you make better decisions when you have gender equity in the decision making bodies; this is proven,” he said.
Buttigieg was campaigning in Iowa just a day after Ohio’s Democratic debate.
“I am so glad to be here coming off the debate. I’ll be honest, I’m a little bit sleep-deprived,” he said. “But nothing could fill my sails more than being able to spend this evening with you.”
Buttigieg reiterated his debate success and challenged followers to dream of a day when President Donald Trump was no longer president.
“Really picture what that day’s going to be like; I’m asking everyone to think about it,” he said. “It’s a nice thought right? We’re definitely ready to put this chaos and corruption behind us.”
