WATCH: Pete Buttigieg urges American voters to visit Malta

The US Presidential candidate, Pete Buttigieg, has described Malta as a beautiful country, and has urged a number of voters who were meeting with him to come and visit.

During a discussion with voters, Buttigieg explained the roots of his surname, adding that if he were to become President of the United States, he would not be the first President holding that surname, as there had been a Maltese President with the same surname, who coincidentally lived next door to his family when they were still on the island.

Buttigieg is the son of Professor Joseph Buttigieg, who had emigrated to the US in the seventies and who had passed away in January of last year.

During his discussion, Buttigieg revealed that he had visited Malta frequently in the past. He added that people probably only saw scenes of Malta in films, as a number of films had been shot on the island. He also revealed that on one occasion he had walked onto the set of World War Z by mistake when the film was being shot.

According to a New York Times survey, Buttigieg is in fourth placing in the Democrats race for the Presidential elections and is the second listed Democratic candidate to have received individual donations, with a total of $51.5 million.
