Presidential hopeful now has an ASL name.
South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg responded to a message from a deaf supporter in sign language last month, The Hill reports.
In a video posted on Twitter, Buttigieg thanked Anderson “Andy” Pleasants for the American Sign Language (ASL) sign he created for the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate.
“Hi Andy — thank you for your support, thanks,” Buttigieg signed in the video.
The tweet was sent about a week after Pleasants shared the ASL sign name he crafted for Buttigieg.
“I just came up with the sign name for @PeteButtigieg Given his new logo has the imagery of a bridge and ‘build bridges, not walls,’ his sign name is P ‘bridged’ across the chest to B!” Pleasants said in a tweet accompanied by a video of him making the sign.
