According to Newt Gingrich and others, President Donald Trump is not a lightweight… and he doesn’t do things without a reason.
Although the propaganda outlets and liberal masters would like Americans to believe that President Trump is ‘racist’ and stupid, he’s neither.
The Washington Examiner explained:
President Trump’s attack on left-wing congresswomen, including a jab that they should “go back” to their homelands, created a furor. But former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says it may be an example of Trump’s strategic genius.
“It is useful to remember Trump doesn’t play tic-tac-toe. He plays chess, and he’s very often setting up a much deeper fight than you might think, looking at the surface,” Gingrich told the Washington Examiner.
Trump’s tweet was widely criticized as inaccurate and offensive, with three of four apparent targets actually born in the U.S. But Gingrich said Trump wanted to raise the profile of his targets and to more closely link their socialist and anti-Israel policies with the Democratic Party.
“He wants the Democratic Party to identify with them,” Gingrich said. “I think the president is often inartful, but remarkably effective.”
Defending the tweet, Trump attacked Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York at the White House Monday. Reps. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts are his other presumed targets. Only Omar was born abroad, in Somalia.
Trump attacked after tension between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the four, whom she dismissively called “the squad.” Republican strategist Alice Stewart said “the Democratic Party is very divided right now and President Trump’s comments only unified them against him.”
So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly……

“Why the president is getting in a Twitter war with two freshmen members of Congress is beyond me; they are not worth his time,” said Stewart, a veteran of four recent GOP presidential campaigns.
But Gingrich said uniting Democrats was the point.
“Pelosi in a sense was trying to draw a line and say, ‘We are not them’. After Trump’s tweet, she said, ‘Oh, we really are them.’ You may have a vote” to admonish Trump for his tweet “in the next day or so when Pelosi lines up with the four radicals,” he said.
Gingrich said he doesn’t believe Trump will be hurt by a perception that his tweet was racist, as “people who willing to believe that are already anti-Trump.”
“There’s no evidence that what he said was racist. What he said was basically designed to say, ‘If you don’t like America, there are a lot of other places you could go,'” Gingrich added. “I thought it was Pelosi who yesterday was being accused of racism by the very four people who she’s now defending. If Pelosi and everyone else is a racist, what does it mean anymore?”
