Gingrich: Nothing Trump says about Charlottesville will satisfy critics

“I just want to suggest to you – there’s an anti-Trump movement in this country that will never, ever be satisfied as long as he’s president.”

(National SentinelExecutive Branch: First, critics of President Donald J. Trump bashed him for not coming out and condemning the violence in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend fast enough.

Then they criticized him for not directly mentioning and scrutinizing white supremacists.

When he did, it still wasn’t good enough for his critics.

That’s because no matter what Trump says or does, it will never satisfy those critics, says informal advisor and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

In an interview with Fox News, Gingrich said the president “came out against bigotry, against racism, against hatred” in Charlottesville, where a young woman lost her life and dozens wounded in violence on Saturday. But that wasn’t enough for Trump-hating critics, who wanted the president to call out only the white bigots involved in the melee, not bigots and racists of any other color or ethnicity (even though they were there, too).

Fox News:

As the events unfolded, President Donald Trump spoke out and condemned the violence on “many sides.” Those remarks led to an outcry that Trump didn’t forcefully speak out against the white nationalists and the president received criticism from those on the left and right.

But Gingrich said that he thought the president spoke appropriately, arguing that the comments were not “particularly inappropriate or particularly weak.”

Trump said bigotry and violence are “un-American,” Gingrich said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum” Monday night.

“But clearly there was a hunger for him to use the specific phrases about white supremacists and about the KKK and about Nazis. He came back today (Monday afternoon), he said every single thing that his critics on the left want. So now you have crowds that are saying ‘well, he didn’t say it soon enough.’ I just want to suggest to you – there’s an anti-Trump movement in this country that will never, ever be satisfied as long as he’s president,” Gingrich said.

He also noted that there are “deep” divisions in the country today, and that is a huge part of why there is so much violence.

“I think the gap in the country right now is that deep and that real,” the former Speaker said. “I think the people on the left have a radically different vision of America’s future than traditional Americans. And I think there’s a small element on the right – which has been there for a long time – which is genuinely crazy.

“And let me say this, as a historian, Nazism was an anti-Christian, totalitarian, anti-Semitic evil. Any person who tells you that they are a neo-Nazi is telling you they’re signing up for evil. And I think we have every right as a country to decide that we’ll do everything we can to make it impossible to have an effective Nazi movement in this country, just as we should have an effective anti-Ku Klux Klan movement, which is focused, in a way, against Americans.”

Gingrich went on to remind the audience that Trump vocally and specifically denounced white supremacist groups last year during his campaign.

“By the way, remember, it’s Donald Trump who, last year, in the campaign, repudiated David Duke, he repudiated the KKK and in his inaugural, he said ‘all of us bleed the same color’ and ‘to be racist is to be un-American,’” Gingrich said.

“We ought to be a country focusing on the future, not a country frothing at the mouth about the past.”

  1. The left has no interest in the President saying “the right thing ” . None . They want their power back and that is ALL THAT MATTERS TO THEM . That means they must destroy the President . They will NEVER say a good word about the President no matter what he dies . Everything negative . That’s how you can tell who they are .
