Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said President Donald Trump is virtually unbeatable and could defeat any Democrat in the 2020 presidential election Thursday on “Fox & Friends.”
Gingrich was asked if he thought former Secretary of State John Kerry could pose a problem for Trump in a presidential race and Gingrich said Trump would easily defeat him because of his strong economic record.
“I am perfectly happy for him to run for president. I think, look, the more Democrats who decide that they will run for president, the better off we are going to be in 2020,” Gingrich said. “I think Trump will beat any of them. So it doesn’t concern me very much. I think the economic boom we are starting into is going to in fact, perform very well this fall for Republicans. And I think that it’s going to perform very well for Trump in 2020.”
Gingrich said the Democratic party is unable to push an agenda of economic growth and believes voters will opt for more jobs and better pay as opposed to bigger government and higher taxes.
“The contrast between the Democrats’ inability to create jobs for eight years and what Trump is doing is going to be so great that I think the country will vote for more jobs and higher take home pay and a better future,” he said. “It’s not complicated. So Kerry can run if he wants to. It’s a free country.”
