Pete Buttigieg isn't giving President Trump much credit for saying the South Bend, Ind., mayor's marriage to a man is "absolutely fine" and "good."

"That's nice," Buttigieg said dismissively in an interview on Friday with the NPR Politics Podcast and Iowa Public Radio. "I'm more interested in policies that affect LGBTQ people."

Buttigieg's remarks came in response to comments made by Trump during a Fox News interview this past week. Asked to comment on seeing Buttigieg and his husband on stage campaigning, Trump said, "I think it's absolutely fine, I do." He added, "I think it's great. I think that's something that perhaps some people will have a problem with. I have no problem with it whatsoever."
