Americans who vote to re-elect President Donald Trump in 2020 are "looking the other way on racism," one of his Democratic rivals said Sunday.

Presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg, who is among the Democratic contenders who has called Trump a white nationalist, was asked on CNN's "State of the Union" whether it's a "racist act" to vote for him in 2020.

"Well, at best, it means looking the other way on racism," Buttigieg responded. "But, I think, a lot of people are wondering what kind of deal even that is supposed to be."
