Gingrich: Trump wouldn’t need to ‘muscle’ Mexico if Congress did its job


AS HE READS THAT PRAYER. JOINING ME NOW, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR, THE AUTHOR OF COLLUSION, NEWT GINGRICH IS HERE. THANKS VERY MUCH FOR WEIGHING IN THIS MORNING. QUITE THE COMMEMORATIVE CEREMONY HAPPENING IN THE U.K. AS WE LOOK AHEAD TO TOMORROW, JUNE 6th AND THE ANNIVERSARY OF D-DAY, 7 A 5 755 75YEARS AGO.>>I ACTUALLY DID A PODCAST ON D-DAY AND PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT’S PRAYER. THE WHOLE PRAYER RUNS MUCH LONGER THAN THEY HAD TIME FOR THIS MORNING. I THOUGHT PRESIDENT TRUMP DELIVERED THE HEART OF IT REALLY, REALLY WELL AND HOPEFULLY IT REMINDS PEOPLE THAT IN 1944 THIS WAS SEEN AS A SPRIRT WALL CRUSADE — SPIRITUAL CRUSADE. YOU HAD NAZIS WHO WERE ANTI-GOD TRYING TO CREATE A SECULAR DICTATORSHIP. IT WAS SEEN AS A STRUGGLE FOR THE SURVIVAL OF OUR CIVILIZATION. TOMORROW REPRESENTS THE 75th ANNIVERSARY OF THE BIGGEST GAMBLE EVER TAKEN BY HUMANS BEINGS. THERE IS NO OTHER PROJECT THE SIZE AND COMPLEXITY OF THE NORMANDY INVASION. AND IT WAS A REMARKABLE HUMAN ACHIEVEMENT. MARIA: IT’S A GOOD WAY TO PUT IT. LET ME ASK YOU ABOUT THE TRUMP ECONOMY, NEWT. WE WANT TO LOOK AT THESE NEW FOX NEWS POLLS, SHOWING THE PRESIDENT RECEIVED POSITIVE JOB RATINGS ON HIS HANDLING OF THE ECONOMY. THE PRESIDENT TWEETED THIS. IF THE TOTALLY CORRUPT MEDIA WAS LESS CORRUPT I WOULD BE UP BY 15 POINTS IN THE POLLS BASED ON OUR TREMENDOUS SUCCESS IN THE ECONOMY, MAYBE THE BEST EVER. IF THE CORRUPT MEDIA WAS ACTUALLY FAIR I WOULD BE UP BY 25 POINTS. NEVERTHELESS, DESPITE THE FAKE NUKES WE ARE DOING GRACE — FAKE NEWS, WE ARE DOING GREAT. WE ARE DEBATING WHETHER OR NOT WE’RE GOING TO SEE A RATE CUT. THE ECONOMY IS GOING STRONG. WE HAVE 3.6% UNEMPLOYMENT. AND WE HAVE ADP NUMBERS SHOWING MORE JOB GROWTH, WITHIN THE NEXT HOUR.>>LET ME OFFER A CONTRARIAN VIEW. I THINK THE FED OUGHT TO FOCUS ON MONEY. IF YOU HAVE NO INFLATION, THEN YOU OUT YOU OUGHT TO BE RELATIVELY PASSIVE. IF YOU HAVE AN INCREASE IN PRODUCTIVITY YOU CAN AFFORD TO CUT RATES JUST NOT BECAUSE YOU’RE TRYING TO STIMULATE THE ECONOMY, BUT BECAUSE YOU ACTUALLY DON’T NEED TO SEND ANY SIGNAL THAT MONEY OUGHT TO BE MORE EXPENSIVE. MONEY IS EXPENSIVENESS IS A FUNCTION OF PROJECTED INFLATION AND WHAT TRUMP HAS MANAGED TO PULL OFF SO FAR IS SUBSTANTIAL ECONOMIC GROWTH WHILE FIGHTING WITH SOME OF OUR TRADING PARTNERS, WHILE REALLY WORKING A AT PROFOUND DEREGULATION. HE’S GOT A RELATIVELY STABLE MONETARY ENVIRONMENT WITH CONTINUED INCREASE IN UNEMPLOYMENT AND WAGE INCREASE WHICH IS VERY, VERY IMPORTANT TO BRING THE MIDDLE CLASS BACK INTO THE GAME.>>MR. SPEAKER, MIKE BLOCK HERE. GOOD MORNING. SO WHAT DOES THIS ALL MEAN? IN LIGHT OF WHAT YOU JUST SAID, WHAT DO YOU THINK COULD HAPPEN HERE WITH THE TRADE SITUATION WITH MEXICO, WHICH IS ON EVERYONE’S MIND OVER THE PAST FEW DAYS? DO YOU THINK THAT TARIFFS WILL GO INTO PLACE? DO YOU THINK A DEAL CAN BE REACHED HERE? DO YOU THINK IT’S VERY IMPORTANT TO THE ECONOMIC ENGINE CONTINUING?>>I THINK A DEAL WILL PROBABLY BE REACHED. AGAIN, FRANKLY, THE PRESIDENT OUGHT TO PUT THE FOCUS ON THE CONGRESS. WE WOULDN’T BE IN THIS MESS, HE WOULDN’T BE HAVING TO MUSCLE THE MEXICANS IF THE U.S. CONGRESS WOULD DO ITS JOB. THE WHOLE PREMISE THAT TRUMP WORKED ON FOR TWO AND-A-HALF YEARS WAS BUILD A WALL, PROTECT THE UNITED STATES, DON’T BOTHER YOUR NEIGHBOR. BUT IF THE CONGRESS REFUSES TO DO ITS JOB, AND HE IS DETERMINED TO CUT OFF THE FLOW OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, WHICH BY THE WAY HAS GROWN DRAMATICALLY IN THE LAST YEAR, THEN YOU’VE GOT TO PRESSURE THE NUMBER ONE SOURCE WHICH IS MEXICO. I MEAN, ALL OF THESE PEOPLE COMING UP TO THE BORDER ARE COMING UP TO THE BORDER THROUGH MEXICO. AND IF THE MEXICANS WANTED TO, THEY COULD CONTROL ALL OF THAT. HISTORICALLY, THEY HAVEN’T WANTED TO PARTICULARLY. AND SO I THINK HE LOOKED AROUND FOR THE ONLY TOOL HE HAD, WHICH WAS TO SCARE THE MEXICAN WITH A TARIFF AND HE SAID LOOK, TRYING TO GET CONTROL OF OUR BORDER AND TRYING TO STOP ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE SHORT-TERM ECONOMIC SIDE EFFECT OF A TARIFF. I MEAN, PLUS, REMEMBER, TRUMP IS A VERY GOOD NEGOTIATOR WHO ALWAYS STARTS VERY TOUGH AND THEN GOES BACK TO BEING REASONABLE. MARIA: THE REPUBLICANS ARE THREATENING TO BLOCK ANY TARIFFS ON MEXICO AND WE SHOULD POINT OUT THAT ONE OF THE MINISTERS IN MEXICO YESTERDAY SAID HE SEES AN 80% CHANCE OF AVOIDING ANY U.S. TARIFFS. IT FEELS LIKE IT’S BLUSTER. THAT’S HOW SAW IT FROM THE GET-GO. WE’LL SEE. HE MADE THE THREAT. HE’S GOT TO STICK TO IT IF IN FACT THEY DON’T COME UP WITH A SUBSTANTIAL ANSWER TO THE BORDER CRISIS.>>I THINK VICE PRESIDENT PENCE WILL END UP WITH A POSITIVE ANNOUNCEMENT, WILL TAKE SUBSTANTIAL STEPS IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION WHICH THEY SHOULD. I WOULD POINT OUT WHETHER OR NOT EVEN WITH THE REPUBLICANS AND THE SENATE IN REBELLION, WHETHER OR NOT THEY COULD OVERVIED A PRESIDENTIAL VETO IS NOT AT ALL CLEAR TO ME. MARIA: IT’S GOOD TO SEE YOU THIS MORNING.

  1. FACT, more illegals coming in today than when Trump was elected. Nothing changed, all of this done with complicity of Congress, which gives the president political cover.

  2. newt you are 100% correct about congress not doing its job trump made the right decision something had to be done the blame falls in the democrats laps

  3. The DEEP STATE NEEDS THAT CORRUPT DRUG MONEY, so NO ONE, other than Trump, WANTS TO DO WHAT IS NEEDED. THAT'S HOW WE ARRIVED AT OUR CURRENT STATE OF AFFAIRS…

  4. 🙂 Mexico is going to pay for the Wall!!! Trump keeps all promises,first president ever to do this!!

  5. I am not going to vote for any politician that undermines our President when he is trying to secure our border.How can replican senators undermine him vis a vis Mexico.

  6. Here is a quote for the left wing traitors and the rhinos who are nothing but controlled opposition that run congress     "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.” Marcus Tullius Cicero  28 BC

  7. On this day, the 75th anniversary of D-Day, our deceased veterans are disrespected by what our country has been allowed to become.

  8. “If Congress would do its job….” if we had term limits for Congress, they wouldn’t need the big lobbying money to keep them in power!

  9. We need hackers to lay open all of congresses bank accounts to see all the shady payoffs they get. I've always been curious how you become a millionaire on a public servants wage…

  10. Why did dems decline to say there was a crisis at the border in Trump's first two years. Oh they were focused on collusion. Now Muller report is out they do acknowledge a crisis and blame it on trump. Dems need to be dismantled and fired.

  11. The true enemies of our Republic is the corrupt media, and the establishment Democrats and the Republican national committee.aka rhinos.

  12. I want a civil war. There's no other way through the leftist ideology that's been cultivated in the ignorant minds over the last decades

  13. If we are to fix the border TRUMP IN 2020 NEEDS TO GET THE HOUSE BACK BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY HE NEED A 60+ SEAT SENATE.
    As far as Mexico whatever deal is made it wont work. Mexico is a socialist country run by the Cartels.

    Mexico has to get rid of the CARTELS. THIS CAN ONLY BE DONE WITH THE HELP OF THE USA MILITARY.
    YOU CAN NOT HAVE FREE AND FAIR TRADE WITH SOCIALIST COUNTRIES. THEY WILL CHEAT, STEAL, LIE, YOU NAME IT THEY WILL DO IT.
    THEIR FREE MARKET SYSTEMS ARE NOT FREE OR FAIR. THIS IS GOING TO BE A PROBLEM FOR YEARS TO COME.

    OUR REE MARKET SYSTEM WORKS BECAUSE WE HAVE SOMETHING OTHER COUNTRIES DON'T HAVE.

    A BILL OF RIGHTS AND CONSTITUTION. SOME OTHER COUNTRIES HAVE A CONSTITUTION BUT IT WAS WRITTEN BY SOCIALISTS.
    DOES ANY OTHER COUNTRY HAVE A BILL OF RIGHTS?????????????????????????????
    Also its not CRONY CAPITALISM, it's CRONY CORPORATISM.
    The free markets system is not capitalism. It's a TOOL that can be used by any ism.

  14. I agree with you! Pres. Trump has done the best he can do. We have the media, congress and the Senate who put all the blame on the Pres. If Nancy, Maxine, Chuckie, Mitch and his lazy crew would do their jobs everything would be Fine

  15. Murdoch, owner of the WSJ, the NYP and FOX (and trump supporter), was deemed in a high level British government enquiry into his business affairs not fit on ethical and moral grounds to run a communications operation. With his reputation sullied there, he decided to focus on media operations in the US. Ironically his US citizenship application was expedited clandestinely by none other than Newt Gingrich who gets plenty of air time on FOX news to push his extremist and biased GOP agenda. And now AG Barr on behalf of trump is using this same media platform to push his obstruction agenda.

  16. Can we please stop seeing the words "…said Newt Gingrich" ? The man has nothing to offer, other than lies and hypocrisy. In the future, please find someone with integrity to provide an opinion, please.

  17. AND THESE MEN AND WOMEN HAD THE GUTS TO STAND UP AND FIGHT WHAT HAPPENED TO AMERICA ITS ROLLING OVER AND DIEING.😡❤🇺🇸

  18. The Democratic are just waiting for the illegal immigrants get here so they can get there votes so the ID's should be shown at every election so the crooked Democrats can't falsify votes like they've done in Florida and Georgia and wherever else they could get illegal votes this' has to become mandatory throughout the country

  19. Close the border, we have enough homeless people in America, LETS TRY HELPING AMERICA FIRST .ALL THOSE PEOPLE COMING ACROSS ARE GOING STRAIGHT TO THE WELFARE LINE .ANOTHER BURDEN ON TAX PAYING AMERICAN WORKERS

  20. SINCE THESE COUNTRY HAVE A FULL TRAITOR CONGRESS IS TIME TO CLEAN HOUSE SOME IN JAIL SOME BE SEND TO MEXICO SOME TO CUBA AND SOMALI AND PALESTINE AND PUERTO RICO AN STRIP THEM OF AMERICAN CITIZENSHIP FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIFE AND THEIR GENETATIONS AS WELL AND STAR CLEAN ALL OVER AGAIN.

  21. Let's make America great again by bringing our infrastructure into the 21st century, curbing gun violence, addressing the increasing crisis of homelessness and stop all the bull** about what other people are or are not doing. There is no compromising with this present administration or so-called senators.

  22. So, now the republicans seem to be planning on losing the senate too. I won't vote for any obstructionists. Dems are a dysfunctional family, but at least they stick together. Republicans act like they're the party of 10,000 mini parties.

  23. Walls do not stop anybody from going over or under as far as that goes. Technology has a better shot of stop the inflow then walls and the can sense tunnels as well. Walls do not stop tunnels and it is cheaper. Congress has already said tech is better and cheaper. But trump thinks that walls are it and he is wrong. You do not need to be a rocket scientist to figure it out when you see videos of people climbing over walls.

  24. Tariffs Work and are better than a War!
    Yes it’s a ‘Tax’ on Some Mexican products, if you don’t like it…
    don’t buy that Mexican product. That can bring that industry back into America.

  25. AMERICANS, BUY AMERICAN GROWN AVOCADOS, WE DONT NEED SOUTH OF THE BORDER AVOCADOS, HELP THE AMERICAN AVOCADO GROWERS, KEEP AMERICAN MONEY IN AMERICA NOT THE SOUTH OF OUR BORDER. IN GOD WE TRUST.

  26. Republicans yet again go out of their way to snatch defeat from the arms of victory.

    Never before has this country need saddled by such disgraceful cowardice.

  27. Let Pres. Trump have his 5% . This will give him the wall money from Mexico. Maybe Mexico could help build the wall. Win', win! Go for it!

  28. The Demonic Demons Democrats and The Mental Morons Media SHOULD BE SUED For Not Doing The Job That They Were Voted and Hired TO DO Hurt them so much it hurts their ARROGANCE'S and PRIDE and SUE Mexico as well

  29. No Dreamers bill should be passed until the border laws are corrected, and the border secured. Congress do you @ucking job for the people NOT your POCKETS. Vote out all the Dems in 2020. Save America.

  30. Our precious country now in deep depth. Yet it is our tax payers that
    will fend for and pay the way all illegals, in our schools, our public
    service, our hospital, for centuries to come. The Mexican Government is
    weak and yet very smart, they know exactly what they are doing by
    acting that they are "trying" there best. Thank you President Trump, a
    truly fearless Leader!!

  32. I guess the matter is the Congress is the one to make the laws. Supreme Court is the one to interpret the laws. The elected President Trump is the one to enforce the laws according to America’s own established Constitution laws. Each other has different positions for different powers to ensure our country America’s greatness by principles. I guess the former Speaker Gingrich means that.

  33. Gingrich is right, the congress will not do anything, they are useless! 2020 will change this disaster

  34. EVERYBODY LISTEN TO ME
    WRITE TO YOUR CONGRESSMEN AND SENATORS VIA EMAIL OR TWEETS OR PHONE CALLS AND TELL THEM WHAT YOU WANT FROM THEM, EXPECT FROM THEM AND DEMAND OF THEM. IMMIGRATION, TRADE, INFRASTRUCTURE, DRAINING THE SWAMP, HEALTHCARE, TELL THEM WHAT YOU WANT!!! WE HAVE THE POWER AS LONG AS WE USE IT. TIME TO FIGHT BACK HARD AMERICA!!!

  35. Mexico is a leech sucking the life out of humanity in the western hemisphere. If Mexico would be useless, it would be a huge improvement. Close the border, period. Let them sell their junk to China.

  36. While I do agree the economy has seen steady improvements (since 2009), and congress should do it's job… Donald Trump imposing more taxes on the American people against the bi-partisan advise of congress, then calling it "muscling Mexicans," seems both counterintuitive, and counterproductive. Seriously?! FOX viewership deserves better.

  37. Yes, Gingrich, let's get rid of that major scum-ball and obstructionist Senate "Leader" Mitch "mush-mouth" McConnell.

  38. Alot of the Congress make money from mexico some way or form that's why they don't push back agaisnt mexico😂😂😂 I cant make this stuff up.

  39. What is wrong with our government representatives? We elected them to do a job on our behalf, pay them well to do that, and then all they do is bash the other guy. Fire them all

  40. I am an American who is so sick and tired of Congress, both Democrats and Republicans who are acting childish and not protecting our borders!

  41. Simple solution to illegal invasion. Penalize employers of illegal workers. Also , taxpayer paid benefits to US citizens only

  42. What Trump needs to do is advertise which Republicans are fighting him and campaign for rival GOPs against all of them.

  43. If you don't understand President Trump you don't understand the United States of America.2020 again.

  44. A really good message from President Bone Spurs (President BS) who was a draft dodger praising those who actually fought! Faux news reaches a new low! Way to go Trump supporters! Club More On is automatic included in your support! 🤣🤣🤣

  45. In 2 years, the number of hispanics have tripled in Utah.
    It is starting to look like Southern California, which looks and feels like Tijuana.

  46. Maybe other countries should get together and muscle the United States because it is a evil empire. I am American and not proud to be in this country. Most people aren't worth the space they take up or the air they breathe. I'm not asking 4 a vote or selling you goofs anything . I am owed money by you goofs. You are the government your a bunch of loudmouth deadbeats! Cowards,retards!!!!!

  47. Newt kickin arse as usual…… watching Mitch roll belly up for his doners and the Chamber of Commerce is disgusting…

  48. I don’t see any employer going to jail for hiring illegal workers. BIG ILLEGAL LABOR in the agriculture sector is untouched, but the poor workers get it from all angles, just because they’re brown and want to make a few dollars to eat by risking it all. As long as the enablers throughout the USA keep hiring these folks and they go unpunished, I will believe nothing Trump, the democrats or the republicans say! Nothing!

  49. Democrats seem to be complete traitors to our country , Democrats in name only, they want to demolish the USA. Disgrace ! Our poor Children!

  50. We need more talk on congress not doing their job. Keep saying it until it sinks in with dem supporters.

  51. Did not see a lick of tax break on my taxes. Rich people did. Another tax to the consumer. 5% is just enough to fill government coffers but keep the flow of goods. And Republicans like it. Talk about cool aid.

  52. JAMES COMEY SHOULD BE KICKED OUT OF AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ALONG WITH THE REST OF THE DEMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THEY ARE OUR ENEMIES!!!!!!!

  53. Rich people want illegals here. They bring illegals here. Pay attention. Criminal trump hires illegal immigrants all the time just like most rich people. If the rich did not hire illegals they would stop coming.

  54. Just announced Mexico and the U.S. have come to an agreement so there will not be any tariffs put in place on Monday. President Trump just keeps on winning and winning and the Democrats keep on losing. The only President with real guts that has not been afraid to do controversial things to help our country.

  55. Sorry, Mexico is screwing us for drug and human trafficking money, simple, Trump is tryiny to save the US and help the Mexican women and children….. WHAT IS THE PROBLEM ?

  56. I just love to hear well-paid members of Congress complaining about Trump trying to do something. Get with the program or get off the bus. You missed your stop.

  57. Drain the swamp Democrats + Republican these dirty swamp in Gov! Can never trust Mexico !! Mexico tariff must come up to 25% they will get their fat butt doing something!!! For 50 years now they together with Democrats corrupted send all drug cartel and gangs MS-13 to USA to destroyed USA for garbage Democrats order!!! Democrats ruin USA must vote them out of Gov drain all swamp in Gov!! Fire all of dirty politicians in Gov the highest criminal crimes highest corruption in Gov!!
