Buttigieg slams Trump over Iran escalation, vows 'I'm going to win' in 2020

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is blasting President Donald Trump for “chest-thumping militarism” and warned that rising tensions between the U.S. and Iran “could very quickly get away from this president.”

At a campaign event Friday night in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire, the one-time long shot for the nomination — who has surged the past two months to become a credible contender — also vowed that “I’m going to win” as he took an indirect jab at former Vice President Joe Biden, the clear front-runner in the Democratic 2020 race.

The South Bend, Indiana mayor and Afghanistan War veteran criticized the Republican president just hours after the Pentagon said that 1,500 additional U.S. forces and firepower are headed to the Middle East as the specter of potential conflict with Tehran increases.

The Trump administration has been ringing alarms the past month over what it calls “troubling” and “escalatory” moves by Iran. The U.S. has been raising the volume on Iran ever since the president took the country out of a multilateral nuclear deal with Iran a year ago.

Not sure of Pete's chances but I'm sure his cockiness gets under Trump's skin.

2. Reading the quote on winning in context, it's a pushback against the argument from electability,

 

rather than cockiness for it's own sake. On paper, he is unelectable, yet he has gotten a lot of attention. He had done that in part by taking the arguments against him head on, stirring up controversy when needed. The argument from electability is a killer for him, so he has to fight it.
