EXETER, N. H. – democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is blasting President Donald Trump for “chest-thumping militarism” and warned that the rising tensions between the US and Iran could “very quickly away from this President.”

At a campaign event on Friday evening in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire, the win for a time, recording for the nomination-who has fluctuated in the past two months to be a credible Challenger — also vowed, “I will” he took an indirect jab at former Vice-President, Joe Biden, the clear front-runner in the Democratic 2020 race.


The South Bend, Indiana, mayor and Afghan war veteran, criticized said the Republican President only a few hours after the Pentagon said the 1,500 additional U.S. troops and firepower made our way to the Middle East, as the specter of possible conflict with Tehran increased.

The Trump administration has moved a rung alarms last month on what it calls “disturbing,” and “escalatory” by Iran. The United States was the raising of the volume on Iran for the President of the country took out of a multilateral nuclear deal with Iran a year ago.

Trump has spent weeks alternating between tough talk in the direction of Tehran, while still insist he is open to negotiations with the Islamic Republican. On Friday, the President told reporters before leaving on a trip to Japan, “we are sending a relatively small number of troops, the most protective.”

Buttigieg speaks at a campaign event in Exeter, New Hampshire, claims that Trump “seems to be now, the us on a course that could lead to violent confrontation.”

Later, he told reporters that “I am very concerned, because we have steps in the direction of confrontation in Iran, almost make it seem as if we learned nothing from the experience in Iraq.”

And he warned that “what we see right now is a series of escalations that could very quickly away from this President where he’s not even under control.”


For the third time in two days, Buttigieg on the target took Trump accuses him of faking a disability, decades ago, in order to avoid military service in the Vietnam war.

Speaking to a crowd jam-Packed in to Exeter’s historic town hall that his campaign, an estimated 680 people who used the candidate charged trump card “to avoid the his permission, when he was in the series.”

He made similar comments at a campaign event with veterans in Londonderry, New Hampshire earlier in the evening.

Trump received five deferments from the draft for military service during the Vietnam war. Four of them were the liberation of educational deferments, while he was a student, and the fifth – in 1968 after the completion of his studies, – a medical.

Two daughters of a New York podiatrist of The New York Times told recently that 50 years ago, her father was diagnosed Trump with bone spurs in the heels, as a please to the doctor, a landlord, a millionaire real estate developer Fred Trump.


On the election campaign in 2015, when he ran for President, Trump said: “It’s been a long time … I had students students and then a medical deferment because of my feet, in the end. I had a bone spur.”

Trump told reporters at the time that he could not remember which foot had the problem. His campaign later said that the bone spurs both feet are affected.

Minutes after the restart, charging that Trump avoid his “privilege” to military service, Buttigieg stressed to the audience, “we can’t think to spend all of our time, up to a zinger, is the President knocking flat. Because any energy that comes his way, all the attention that comes his way, even in the form of criticism, it is kind of like the food he just takes it and gets bigger.”

Asked later by Fox News how he will square the comments with his repeated attacks on trump in the past two days about his Vietnam war deferments, the candidate replied, “we have to absolutely say exactly what we think about the President of the offences, infidelity and lies. It’s just that this is not our message. As soon as we say that we have to go to the question of how we are to improve American life.”


Buttigieg seemed to be a shot at the former Vice-President at the town hall. In an obvious reference to Biden – who most would feel many of the voters themselves can be replaced by any candidate of the two dozen Democrats who are running currently for President, Buttigieg argues that “sometimes we get someone who we think less inspiring that, it is also less risky and we don’t always wrap someone’s, too.”

“The point is, you can move people. It’s not just about ideology. It’s not just a matter of where your point on the political spectrum. It is about something new, something else,” the 37-year-old candidate also stressed.

A viewer asked why they should support him, Buttigieg said: “two reasons, I’m going to make a really good President and I will win.”
