Newt GingrichPresident Donald Trump is making “strategic steps” by with his attacks on four Democratic freshman congresswomen that will end with current House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy becoming the next speaker of the House, former Speaker Newt Gingrich claimed Wednesday.
“He wants to make sure the Democrats embrace the radical wing of their party,” Gingrich told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” pointing out that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been trying “very hard” to separate the two factions.
“It’s going to be pretty hard not to believe they’re on the same team,” Gingrich said, and if the Democratic Party gets identified with “radicals” like Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib, “they are going to lose.”
“I think a major theme next year, much as there was in 1984 with President (Ronald) Reagan, is going to be patriotism, and every time the president says patriotism, the left-wing media, the propaganda wing of the Democratic Party yells racism,” said Gingrich. “I think the president is setting up a big national debate next year over the nature of patriotism and whether or not you’re allowed free speech if you’re conservative, not just if you’re a radical.”
Meanwhile, it will not matter whether Democrats nominate Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, or Elizabeth Warren, as “they’re all the same left-wing, hardline fringe politicians,” said Gingrich. “They are going to get 40 percent of the vote under any circumstance and they’re going to have huge enthusiasm.”
However, he added, they may scare away most Americans in the process.
