According to reports, the event will take place on 18 June 18 at a private residence.
The news coincides with Mayor Pete’s appearance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.
In a video teaser of the appearance, Buttigieg is seen saying: ‘Up until this season I was pretty much Team Daenerys.’
‘I felt like she was really growing in her leadership style,’ he furthermore added.
‘I’m a little concerned now, based on what I’ve seen in the last few episodes. Her management approach has got some issues! I’m kind of back to square one.’
‘So, you go both ways?’
He is also seen ‘slow jamming’ the news with Fallon in another teaser. In it, Buttigieg said he hopes to connect with both Democrats and Republicans. To this, Fallon says: ‘So, you go both ways?’ Fallon asked.
‘No, I’m just gay.’ Buttigieg responded, to cheers from the audience.
