President Trump said Wednesday that he would welcome the opportunity to run against Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, his first direct comment on the South Bend, Ind. mayor.

In an interview with David Webb – a contributor for The Hill – on SiriusXM, Trump speculated that he may end up campaigning for the presidency in 2020 against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), former Vice President Joe Biden or “the mayor from Indiana,” referencing Buttigieg without mentioning him by name.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I think I’d like running against him, too,” Trump said of Buttigieg. “But it’ll be interesting to see it unfold.”

The interview marked Trump’s first direct comment on Buttigieg, who formally entered the Democratic field of prospective candidates on Sunday and has surged in recent polling.
