President Donald Trump says he can "live with" Democrat Pete Buttigieg as president.
Trump made his comment in a Wednesday tweet in response to a Twitter post by Eric Bolling, host of "America This Week" on BlazeTV. Bolling had remarked about Tuesday's debate performance by Buttigieg, the former South Bend, Indiana, mayor.
Bolling wrote that he personally supports Trump "all the way."
And he added: "But…if I had to live in an America with one of the Dems as Potus at this point I believe it would be @PeteButtigieg. He seems smart, even tempered and as moderate as any on the stage. Holds his own with career pols."
Trump tweeted back: "Eric, I can live with that!"
Buttigieg, in the debate, slammed both Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.
"I am not looking forward to a scenario where it comes down to Donald Trump with his nostalgia for the social order of the '50s and Bernie Sanders with a nostalgia for the revolution politics of the '60s," he said.
