Pete Buttigieg isn’t fretting about what will happen if President Trump won’t accept the results of the election.
The former South Bend mayor sees a bright side, joking at a campaign event in Reno on Monday asked what he would do if the ‘current occupant’ – Trump – says ‘this is all a hoax, and the Senate and Fox News agree with him ‘when he doesn’t want to leave.’
‘I mean, if he won’t leave, I guess if he’s willing to do chores, we can work something out,’ he quipped, getting laughs and applause from the crowd.

Buttigieg made the comment after Trump spent last week railing against the impeachment ‘hoax,’ blasting federal prosecutors, and calling for the Mueller report to be ‘expunged.’
After he was acquitted by the Republican-controlled Senate, Trump trolled his opponents by posting a video that showed him running for president in 2024, 2028, 2032 and beyond.
Buttigieg also referenced his early comments to HBO talk host Bill Maher. He said it would be ‘pretty awkward when Chasten and I are moving in our furniture,’ earning laughs.
At the end of the day, there’s only one president,” he explained. “This is one of the reason we not just eke out a win, not just club everybody over the head and hope that we get to 51 per cent and our Twitter followers outnumber your Twitter followers and we somehow piece together a squeaker.

‘I think we want to set a goal of winning big enough that this election is way beyond cheating distance,’ Buttigieg said.
‘It’s got to be a win so big that Senate Republican are reunited with their consciences,’ he said, calling for a ‘political shock wave.’
Trump last week told interviewer Geraldo Rivera Americans would vote for a gay president. ‘I think there would be some that wouldn’t, and I wouldn’t be among that group, to be honest with you,’ Trump said.
