Silently, Buttigieg joins protest at White House against Trump policies

It’s a rare thing for a presidential candidate to keep his mouth shut at a campaign appearance. But that’s what Pete Buttigieg did, resolutely, during a 45-minute stop at a Washington, D.C. march Wednesday.

Buttigieg was not planning to speak at the event, a rally in front of the White House held by a group called Repairers of the Breach, organizers said.

Instead he stared. He furrowed his brow. He nodded, almost imperceptibly. He clapped a few times, while a bevy of camera people recorded his every move and rally organizers pleaded with participants to focus, not on the array of presidential expressions fleeting across the candidate’s face, but on the people they had brought there to speak.

The event, a march on the White House in honor of “Moral Witness Wednesday,” was meant to “bring a warning to the Trump administration, to speak out against the policy violence that has been taking place,” said Rev. Stephen Roach Knight, one of the organizers. He did not answer questions about how Buttigieg came to be there and why he did not speak.

“The call went out across the country,” Knight said. “Mayor Buttigieg was one of the people who heard that call.”
