President Donald Trump is “completely out of touch” with American consumers, Democratic presidential candidate and South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg said Sunday.

In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Buttigieg stated  most Americans are still struggling economically during the economic expansion and “have not been able to get ahead.”

“That is a huge problem,” he said. “The president has made it abundantly clear that he doesn't care. When it comes to rural America, to him it's the scenery he sees out his helicopter window on his way to his golf course.” 

“With American consumers, he's completely out of touch [to] the impact it will have on the prices we pay in a trade war where both sides will lose,” he said.

Buttigieg said he thinks America is “probably” on the brink of recession.

“You have an economy that is not working for most Americans. There's a big debate now on whether we're on the cusp of a recession. I think we probably are,” he said.
