During an interview on the Sept. 12 edition of The Laura Ingraham Show, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) praised the anti-liberal agenda of President Donald Trump, stressing that Trump is “the most effective anti-liberal president in my lifetime.”
“I’ve said over and over again that Trump is the most effective anti-liberal president in my lifetime,” said Gingrich, as reported by LifeZette.com, whose editor-in-chief is Laura Ingraham.
“He’s not an institutional conservative, and he’s not a philosophical guy,” he said. “But the impact of what he’s doing is disrupting the left more than any president of my lifetime.”
“I mean, it’s an amazing thing to watch,” said the former House Speaker.
On the Supreme Court, President Trump “is actually going to move substantially to a more conservative Supreme Court in a way that, if you’re a left-winger, it terrifies you,” said Gingrich.
The president is pushing a strong conservative agenda, added Gingrich. “He’s doing this with regulations, he’s doing it with his tax policies; the tax cuts are working. And so the Left is right on the edge of seeing their entire lifetime of effort to make this a left-wing country just go down the drain,” he said.
Gingrich further said that former President Barack Obama’s recent speech critical of Trump stemmed from bitterness. “Obama sees all the radical left-wing things he believes in being put under pressure by Trump,” he said.
