(FOX NEWS) – Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg tried to lay out the differences between the Democratic and Republican parties on Sunday, saying the former is trying to “find solutions” to the inflation crisis while the latter is busy “going to war with Mickey Mouse.”

During an appearance on ABC News’ “This Week,” Buttigieg was asked by host George Stephanopoulos to give advice to Democrats who are facing a tough midterm election due to the state of the economy.

“The bottom line is that there are two very clear and very different approaches here,” Buttigieg responded. “There is our approach, which is to find solutions to invest in our supply chains like we’re doing with the infrastructure money in certainly in my department and others to do everything we can to lower costs for American families, like the cost of insulin and prescription drugs.”

“And then there’s the other path that congressional conservatives have put forward, which doesn’t really speak much to inflation,” he continued. “It’s raising taxes on lower and middle class families, making a lot of political hay out of the very real challenges that families are feeling and going to war with Mickey Mouse. So there’s a very clear difference in strategies here against some very challenging economic problems.”
