Gingrich: Trump’s Tougher on Russia than Obama [VIDEO]

By 1600 Staff

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich makes the case why President Trump was much tougher than Obama on Russia.

Speaker Gingrich, via Fox News:

Anyone who has studied President Trump knows he hates to admit a mistake. His natural pattern is to move forward and ignore mistakes. For him, this was a big correction (and as I noted the day before, it was an absolutely necessary one). President Trump then reminded everyone of the Obama administration’s failures in dealing with Russian meddling in the election. President Trump noted that President Obama and his advisers had information that the Russians had been working to interfere in the election and they ignored it, because they thought Hillary Clinton was going to win.

. . .

First, the very people who have been loudest in attacking President Trump about his performance at the Helsinki summit are the people who failed to protect America from Russian meddling in 2016. The very intensity and nastiness of former CIA Director Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence Clapper is an attempt to distract attention from their failure to protect America. It was their duty in 2016 – not candidate Trump’s.

Second, the Trump administration has been far tougher on Russia than President Obama ever dreamed of being. The Trump administration is taking real actions designed to weaken Russia and force Putin to change his aggressive behavior.

The speaker went on to cite the instances of  the president issuing tough sanctions against the Russians, arming Ukraine and strengthening NATO by making Europe pay their obligated share. President Trump is standing firm against Russian actions, while leaving the door open for a peaceful middle-ground. The threat from Russia is made much worse by years of neglect from Barack Obama, and the president is striving for a peaceful middle ground before the situation gets out of hand, and tougher decisions are required to secure America,

The Obama people attacked the President the loudest over Russia because they’re covering their own crime and corruption against America. If only God intervenes, the Obama/Clinton people would have the best KARMA they didn’t dreamed of.

Democ “rats” are just way to left and they cannot recover for their stupidity. The have no agenda and they want the open borders, more illegals with their children and with no proper documentation.

It is going to be difficult to democRATS to recover from their stupidity when the majority of the educators that are teaching children are crazy liberals. They make no bones about what they are teaching our children, and punish those who don’t comply with their teachings like students wearing T-Shirts that say Make America Great Again getting sent home to change. Since I gather that you speak Spanish, “¡Estamos de la patada! Parents have to “unteach” what kids are learning in school by sitting down with their children and saying that the teacher is/was wrong in what he/she said, and then explain to them the real truth of the matter.

Hard for our president to deal with other governments when the democrats and the left wing media demand they be kept informed of ongoing discussions. To allow them to interfere is to allow the socialists to have favor where none is welcome.

All you non-believers (Idiots) listen to what Gingrich states above. It is all factual, easy to check on. Let Trump do it his way – he will overcome. Don’t listen to the Non-Trump People, Biased Media and Liberals – they are against America – it’s been proven….. Did you know that Putin has an arrest warrant out for Soros…. you can check that also. Start helpingg your President NOW.

AMEN! Every msg I send out reminds everyone to vote, especially in the current midterms!! We need to be LOUD & CLEAR by electing conservatives. If Dems take back Congress, all the insight investigations will abruptly end & we will never get justice! In addition, they will def attempt impeachment & could win on that. This is. A critical time in our Country. Not only is our Presidents agenda in jeopardy, his presidency is in jeopardy and equally as frightening is the real possibility that our entire constitution is in danger of being rewritten.

Did the Russians initiate meddling in our elections or did the democrats/Rinos offer them an opportunity to help convert America into a socialist state? I suspect that only Obama smelled like he would go socialists to the Russians, being a muslim and all that. The russians had never done anything like this before and would not expect Trump to sell America out.

Obumma was a huge mistake for the US, he didn’t do one thing he said he was going to do. He was the biggest fraud for a president, this country has ever seen. First he wasn’t even a citizen of this country, second he was a Muslim, third he was a traitor to our constitution. President Trump has been cleaning up Obumma mistakes, since he took office. Obumma was a traitor so he didn’t consider what he did a mistake. He wanted to make the US a third world country, not a super power like it is. There was nothing that Obumma did that was good for this country, he lied about everything.

Because the american intelligence community created by Mueller, Brennan, Clapper, Comey has accused and accuse the president of collusion exactly how they accuse the Russians , president Trump can not trust this “community” ! The ” intelligence community ” installed and trained by the enemies of the president (Obama, Bush, Clinton) will have to undergo a massive scrutiny and purification system to truly become a intelligence community !

Those that hate our President will continue to hate him no matter what he does. Those that support the President will continue to support him. I voted for this president because he said he will drain the swamp, button up our borders, fix the trade imbalances, make the USA energy independent, reduce regulations, get the EU out of our pockets, reduce taxes to spur the economy, bring up our standing in the world, get rid of Obama Care, bring back jobs to soil, reign in Foreign agitators, i.e, North Korea, get people off welfare on out in the work force, raise the standard of living for the “forgotten men and women”, no longer be the world’s piggy bank, help the Va and our precious veterans, end illegal immigration, fix our present immigration laws, protect our first and second amendment rights, clean up the courts, bring money back into the country, get manufacturing going again in our country, and once again DRAIN the SWAMP which is eating our country alive! That’s why he won and that’s why I’ll vote for him again! He is keeping his promises, and I pray we will see Justice served on those who combat against the American People. This was a “tall order platform” but Trump is slowly doing everything he promised to do. He’s putting America First, something Obama doesn’t understand. Obama tried to put America last and created these problems that Trump has to clean up. The very idea of calling Trump supporter UN American just proves how despicable these swamp rats are. “Give me Liberty or give me Death!” Trump 2018! Trump 2020″

We can only hope all decent US citizens from all nationalities realize the Deep State has been controlling this country for a long time and giving a propaganda script to the media to facilitate their control. That’s why this nation has not been able to unite for the good of the all. They instigate dissension. Our tax dollars pay them and promote them to the level of ultimate betrayal, but whose bidding are they doing?
