Here’s why Newt Gingrich is calling Trump’s RNC speech ‘a revolutionary moment’

After GOP nominee Donald Trump’s widely praised Republican National Convention speech to a roaring audience, longtime supporter Newt Gingrich is calling the address “a revolutionary moment.”

Gingrich, who was once considered the top-contender to be Trump’s running mate, said Trump’s speech broadened the scope of the GOP by reaching out to disenfranchised groups like black Americans and the gay community, according to CNN.

“I thought it was a very comprehensive speech. I thought it was very deliberately designed,” the former House Speaker told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on “New Day.”

“He had a series of parts of the speech that were designed, I think, to appeal to African-Americans in the inner city, to appeal to the LGBTQ community, to appeal to a number of people,” Gingrich added. “He didn’t automatically say it would have been a traditional Republican speech.”

Gingrich also lambasted Hillary Clinton’s proposal to flood the country with Syrian refugees, which the intelligence community has already admitted, cannot be properly vetted.

“We don’t have the data inside Syria to know anything,” Gingrich said. “That’s just a fact. We don’t have the intelligence penetration. We don’t have any police cooperation. We don’t know anything about these people.”

Trump has repeatedly positioned himself as the “law and order candidate,” continuously talking about the plight of the working class and an ever-growing, and legitimate fear of Islamic terrorism.
