Newt Gingrich provides commentary on the terrorist attack in New York City and how the U.S. is committing "cultural suicide" with diversity lottery immigration on Thursday's edition of FOX & Friends.
NEWT GINGRICH: If you just applied common sense, you would realize how often Donald J. Trump is right and how often his critics are just stupid. Listen to what you just said. This guy wins the lottery and then brings 23 relatives? The average American has no notion that's going on. What we did over the last 10 or 15 years is we bent over backwards, the Germans are even worse than we are, the Scandinavians are worse than we are. All these groups bend over backwards basically and commit cultural suicide and say, oh, please, let us make sure that, for example, people can come to us from countries that are very radical.
But let me remind you. This is about more than just immigrants being radicalized. There are Americans being radicalized. The Santa Barbara terrorist was, in fact, an American, although his wife was from overseas. The Orlando terrorist was an American, although his father had come and was first generation and in many ways anti-American. We're going to have to be much tougher about the mosques. We're going to have to be much tougher what's happening in terms of the internet, and I think we're going to have to allow the police to be more aggressive. New York prior to the current mayor had a very, very aggressive intelligence system, probably the best city system in the world. And, of course, the current mayor is just totally out to lunch. Has no idea what terrorism is and is mystified by all of this.
