'Why mislead people?': Moment Chris Wallace fact-checks Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg over claim Biden infrastructure plan will create 19m new jobs - when the actual figure is 2.7m

Pete Buttigieg walked back Sunday on his claim Joe Biden's infrastructure package would create 19 million jobs in American – clarifying the plan would still create jobs, but at a much lower number of 2.7 million.

Fox News host Chris Wallace asked President Biden's transportation secretary why he 'misled folks' by claiming the number was more than 16 million than what he is now sharing.

'You're right. I should have been more precise,' Buttigieg admitted.
