Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich joined Laura Ingraham on the Hannity program to offer his insight into President Trump’s speech today in Warsaw, Poland. They play a clip from the speech to being the conversation in which President Trump says, “Our defense is not just a commitment of money, it is a commitment of will. Because, as the Polish experience reminds us, the defense of the West ultimately not only on means but also on the will of its people to prevail and be successful, and get what you have to have.”
Trump continued, “The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive. Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost? Do we have enough respect for our citizens to protect our borders? Do we have the desire and the courage to preserve our civilization in the face of those who would subvert and destroy it?”
Laura Ingraham relays how when she heard President Trump speaking today, the only thing that came to her mind was Ronald Reagan. Gingrich agreed that it was “very much like Reagan’s 1982 speech at Westminster, which was one of his best speeches. Trump is describing in a way almost no American President has since Franklin Delano Roosevelt that this is a war about civilization.”
we’re not only in a struggle against Islamic terrorists, but bureaucratic secularists
Gingrich says he thought Trump was particularly courageous for pointing out that we’re not only in a struggle against Islamic terrorists, “we’re also in a struggle with bureaucratic secularists, such as the British court that basically wants to kill Charlie Gard, the little baby that they do not want to allow to go and have any kind of help either at the Vatican or in the United States.”
He says he “thought it was really a remarkable speech, it covered an extraordinary amount of history and I think that it’s a landmark. I think people will be able to see philosophically a lot better who Donald Trump is from this speech. And, I think, from the standpoint of the Polish people, it was enormously heartening to have an American President so decisively with them and so openly tough about communism and about Russia.”
They play a clip where President Trump is stressing the importance of borders and cultural integrity and security. Gingrich notes, “There is a huge gap between the values of the Central Europeans, which includes not just Poland but Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, a number of countries, and the values of Germany and the Scandinavian countries and the Netherlands and France. And I think what Trump has done is come down decisively on the side of those who worry about national identity, worry about survival, have been very practical. And of course he set the stage for the meeting in Hamburg and he indicated very clearly to Merkel he ain’t backing down.
They also discuss comments made by Merkel today that the strengths and successes of Europe and the rest of the world depend upon “open societies,” the same terminology her fellow globalist and political sugar daddy George Soros uses to describe his destruction of nations states across the globe.
The short second video below gets into the religious aspects of the speech, the history of Poland, with Gingrich providing some interesting commentary in that regard as well.
