NEWT GINGRICH (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): Well, I think the president believes that the more he can get the country to look at the so-called squad, the more he can get them to realize how radical they are and how fundamentally anti-American their views are, in the long run the better off he is. I think he would like to see them as sort of the front page of the Democratic Party. And I think he thinks anything he does to elevate them is to his net advantage. 


GINGRICH: Oh, I think so. But you know, there are things going on that are just crazy. Over the weekend there were 1,000 people in Aurora, CO, attacking an American building, tearing down the American flag, hanging it back up upside down, having painted abolish ICE on it and flying next to it the Mexican flag. Now, I think it's reasonable for the average American to get pretty angry, and this all helps re-elect Trump. I mean, are you on the side of the people who deface and smear the American flag and decide to fly the Mexican flag, or are you on the side of people who think, you know, this is the United States, we have the right to have respect for our institutions and respect for our history. And I think this is going to be a major dividing line in 2020.
