Pete Buttigieg, a presidential candidate of the Democrat party rejected the tweets made by President Donald Trump shortly after Trump attacked the South Bend mayor on Twitter.
“I don’t care,” Buttigieg told Fox News’s Chris Wallace at a town hall in Claremont, N.H, as reported by The Hill.
The South Bend mayor continued with his remarks, saying that the President’s Twitter account is “a great way to get the attention of the media.”
Buttigieg added that Trump’s online behavior is “grotesque,” saying that “it is the nature of grotesque things that you can’t look away.”
His comments came after Trump took aim at Fox News for giving him airtime and compared him to a character from Mad Magazine.
“Hard to believe that @FoxNews is wasting airtime on Mayor Pete, as Chris Wallace likes to call him,” Trump tweeted.
Trump has also taken aim at other Democratic primary candidates, particularly former Vice President Joe Biden, calling him “Sleepy Joe.”
