(FixThisNation.com) – Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg pushed for former President Donald Trump to express solidarity for the six immigrant workers who lost their lives last month following the collapse of the Baltimore bridge. 

On Sunday during an interview on MSNBC’s “Inside with Jen Psaki,” Buttigieg claimed that he was not going to be talking about the campaign but that he would instead be talking at a human level. He added that this was one case where it would be helpful for former president Trump to speak up and express solidarity. As he pointed out this is something they have seen from elected officials from both parties and that it was the human response to what had occurred. 

MSNBC host Jen Psaki pointed out that Trump has not yet made any acknowledgment of the road workers who lost their lives last month while filling potholes on the Francis Scott Key Bridge. The workers had been on the bridge when a large container vessel had smashed into the bridge causing it to collapse. That night six immigrant workers lost their lives as the bridge collapsed. 

Buttigieg argued that there were many workers in the country, with many of them being immigrants. As he pointed out these people were important to infrastructure jobs, which are essential to the country even though they are not paying the highest rates. 

He added that in this case, it was important for them to show some regard on a human level about what was important and that this had been what President Biden had been doing when he was with him in Baltimore during their visit.
