Gingrich On Extreme Vetting: People Killed In Terrorist Attacks In France, Orlando Were "Inconvenienced"


SEAN HANNITY: To me, fundamentally, this comes down to a very simple equation. Are we willing to inconvenience a few people in the case of this weekend, 109 people for the safety and security of the American people and not gamble with their lives? Is that the proper -- am I framing this right?

NEWT GINGRICH: Well, I think you are, and that's what the left does not want to deal with. We had eight years of Barack Obama, who was always willing to take risk with American lives on behalf of people we've never met because anybody who wasn't an American somehow attracted Obama's compassion in a way that Americans didn't.

You now have a president who really take seriously the tremendous threat of international terrorism and who is prepared to take steps that are very tough-minded and that are going to inconvenience some people.

But let's be clear: the people in the Orlando nightclub who were killed, they were pretty inconvenienced. The people in San Bernardino who were killed at the Christmas party, they were pretty inconvenienced. The people in Berlin, who were killed when a truck went into a Christmas market, they were pretty inconvenienced. I think we have to recognize as a country, we have a right to protect our own citizens and that is precisely what this is aimed at.
