Buttigieg: Trump administration's low credibility adding uncertainty on oil tanker attacks


BY KYLE BALLUCK - 06/16/19 07:52 AM EDT

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg said in an interview broadcast early Sunday that while the evidence is “compelling” that Iran was behind recent attacks on oil tankers, the Trump administration’s low credibility is adding a level of uncertainty.

“I think what we've seen is compelling,” the South Bend, Ind. mayor said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” when asked if the administration has provided enough proof that Iran was behind the tanker attacks

“There seems to be more information that we haven't had a chance to see,” Buttigieg, a former Navy intelligence officer, added.

“It's a little distressing to think that because this administration's credibility is so low in general, I think a lot of people are thinking twice at a moment when America's word should be decisive," he said. "When the U.S. says this is something that has happened and this is the consensus of our administration, that should be something that goes without question. But of course, that's just not the case in an administration that has been extremely unreliable in so many ways.”

1. He's not wrong!

 

I'm sure people all around the world are skeptical of anything Trump or his cronies say.
