The corporate media’s “hostility” toward President Trump has built up to a critical level never before seen in American history, according to former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich.
“I think the level of hostility is beyond anything we’ve ever seen,” Gingrich told Fox host Mark Levin on Sunday. “The last study said 92 percent of the news media was hostile to Trump – of the actual coverage, you know, in story by story by story.”
“I think if you were openly pro-Trump in the New York Times newsroom, they would fire you. And The Washington Post – they would just fire you.”
“Take the example about what Trump was saying about nationalism,” he continued. “One of the great magic moments in American history is Benjamin Franklin, who goes to England to represent the colony of Pennsylvania, and after seven years realizes that he will never be accepted as an Englishman. The aristocracy would not accept him, even though he was a world-famous scientist and a very wealthy man. And people have said he left as a British subject, he came back as an American.”
Gingrich went on to say that Trump’s use of the word “nationalism” is essentially a rebuke of the establishment elite who view themselves as global – not national – leaders.
“These guys on the left want to basically sell our country out for some kind of global cause, whether it be the Paris Accords, or the International Criminal Court, or the United Nations.”
