Gingrich on Tlaib visiting Israel, Trump’s New Hampshire rally


WE START EATING LUNCH AT 7:00 IN THE MORNING. STEVE: I LOVE THE BRISKET: WE GOT UP EARLY. FOUNDER OF GINGRICH 360.COM AND HOST OF THE PODCAST NEWT’S WORLD. GOOD MORNING TO YOU. AINSLEY: GOOD MORNING.>>IT’S GOOD TO BE WITH YOU GUYS. STEVE: MR. SPEAKER WE HAVE BREAKING NEWS THIS MORNING ABOUT AN HOUR AND A HALF AGO IT WAS ANNOUNCED BY THE FOREIGN MINISTER OF ISRAEL THAT THEY WERE GOING TO ALLOW RASHIDA TLAIB TO GET INTO ISRAEL AFTER SHE WROTE A LETTER TO THE INTERIOR MINISTER AND THEY GRANTED HER ACCESS TO THE COUNTRY ON HUMANITARIAN GROUNDS. AINSLEY: THIS IS WHAT SHE SAID IN THE LETTER. I WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST ADMITTED TO ISRAEL IN ORDER TO VISIT MY RELATIVES AND SPECIFICALLY MY GRANDMOTHER WHO IS IN HER 90’S AND LIVES IN A CERTAIN AREA THERE ON THE WEST BANK. THIS COULD BE MY LAST OPPORTUNITY TO SEE HER. I WILL RESPECT ANY RESTRICTIONS AND WILL NOT PROMOTE BOYCOTTS AGAINST ISRAEL DURING MY VISIT. WHAT’S YOUR RESPONSE TO THAT?>>LOOK, I THINK SHE MADE THE RIGHT HUMANITARIAN REQUEST. I THINK THE ISRAELIS HAD THE RIGHT INSTINCTS BECAUSE SHE IS IN A UNIQUE POSITION, HAVING RELATIVES THERE. AND FRANKLY I THINK IT WOULD BE VERY HEARTLESS TO SAY YOU CAN’T VISIT YOUR GRANDMOTHER IN HER 90’S. SO I THINK PROBABLY SHE DID THE RIGHT THING. SHE RECOGNIZED THAT THE ISRAELIS HAD A LEGITIMATE GRIEVANCE AND SHE AGREED TO ABIDE BY THEIR GROUND RULES AND THE ISRAELIS SAID LOOK AS LONG AS YOU ARE GOING TO PLAY FAIR WE DON’T WANT TO KEEP YOU FROM YOUR GRANDMOTHER, STROIX ME THAT’S A PRETTY WIN-WIN PSYCHOLOGICAL POSITION.>>WHAT DOES THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT DO ABOUT ILHAN OMAR WHO WAS DENIED ACCESS AFTER THE PRESIDENT TWEETED OUT IF ISRAEL LETTING THEM IN, IT’S GOING TO SHOW WEAKNESS AND THEN NETANYAHU CAME OUT AND SAY WE ARE GOING TO BAR BOTH OF THEM. NOW TLAIB GETS TO GO BUT WE DON’T KNOW WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN WITH ILHAN OMAR.>>WELL, I DON’T KNOW THAT ILHAN OMAR, WHO I BELIEVE IS SOMALIAN, NOT PALESTINIAN HAS ANY FAMILY RELATIVES LIVING IN THE AREA THEY ARE VERY DIFFERENT CIRCUMSTANCES AND FRANKLY I THINK IT’S A BIT MUCH TO SAY TO THE ISRAELIS SOMEBODY GETS TO SAY HATEFUL THINGS, GETS TO FOLLOW A POLICY DESIGNED TO DESTROY YOUR POLICY, GET TO DEFAME YOU, GETS TO LIE ABOUT YOUR HISTORY BUT YOU OWE THEM ADMISSION? I THINK THAT’S BOLOGNA. SO THE ISRAELI DECISION NOT TO LET HER IN IS PERFECTLY REASONABLE TLAIB DOES NOT HAVE A HUMANITARIAN REASON FOR THE ISRAELIS TO ALLOW HER IN. STEVE: ALL RIGHT. AINSLEY: SO LAST NIGHT THERE WAS A TRUMP RALLY AND THE PRESIDENT SAID — WHY ARE YOU LAUGHING?>>BECAUSE IT’S AUGUST. HE COULD SLOW DOWN A LITTLE BIT. STEVE: ON VACATION.>>WANDERING HIS IDEA OF A VACATION IS 12,000 PEOPLE CHEERING FOR AN HOUR AND A HALF. WHAT CAN I SAY? AINSLEY: HERE IS SOUND BITES FROM THE RALLY LAST NIGHT. LISTEN TO THIS.>>LET ME TELL YOU, IF FOR SOME REASONABLE I WOULDN’T HAVE WON THE ELECTION, THESE MARKETS WOULD HAVE CRASHED. THE BOTTOM LINE IS, I KNOW YOU LIKE ME AND THIS ROOM IS A LOVE FEST, I KNOW THAT BUT YOU HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO VOTE FOR ME BECAUSE YOUR 401(K)s DOWN THE TUBES. EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE DOWN THE TUBES. SO, WHETHER YOU LOVE ME OR HATE ME, YOU GOT TO VOTE FOR ME. YOU HAVE THE BEST UNEMPLOYMENT, YOU HAVE THE MOST SUCCESSFUL STATE IN THE HISTORY OF YOUR STATE. AND IN THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY. AND THEN YOU ARE GOING TO VOTE FOR SOMEBODY ELSE? OH, GREAT.>>NO. LET’S VOTE FOR ELIZABETH POCAHONTAS WARREN. [BOOS]>>DAN: MR. SPEAKER, YOU ARE THE PERFECT PERSON TO ASK THIS QUESTION. WHEN YOU HAD A RUN THE HOUSE BIPARTISAN INITIATIVES WITH THE CLINTON PRESIDENCY AND THE ECONOMY DID QUITE WELL. YOU COULD TAKE CREDIT FOR AS REPUBLICANS AND THE PRESIDENT WOULD AS WELL. THAT’S NOT THE CASE WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP, TAX FORM WAS UNILATERAL, THERE WERE NO DEMOCRATS ON BOARD. HE IS SMART, IS HE NOT, TO FOCUS ON THE ECONOMY KNOWING DEMOCRATS HAVE NOTHING TO SAY OTHER THAN TO TALK DOWN AND OBVIOUSLY FLOURISHING ECONOMY RIGHT NOW.>>SURE. LOOK. I THINK PART OF WHY YOU SAW THE CONSUMER PURCHASES UP IS PEOPLE HAVE HAD A VERY SUBSTANTIAL PAY RAISE. INTERESTINGLY, FROM A STANDPOINT OF DEMOCRATS, THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE HAD THE BIGGEST PERCENTAGE OF PAY RAISES HAVE BEEN IN THE BOTTOM FOURTH OF THE COUNTRY. PEOPLE ACTUALLY HAVE MORE MONEY. IN ADDITION, THE PRESIDENT IS VERY PRO-OIL AND GAS POLICY HAS LOWERED THE COST — I ONCE WROTE A BOOK CALLED GASOLINE AT 2.50 A GALLON AND OBAMA ATTACKED ME PERSONALLY BECAUSE IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE. EVERY TIME YOU BRING DOWN THE PRICE OF GASOLINE AND NATURAL GAS, IT’S THE EQUIVALENT OF A TAX CUT. AND PEOPLE HAVE MORE CASH TO SPEND ON OTHER THINGS. SO, I THINK RIGHT NOW WE ARE IN A WIN-WIN ECONOMY. NOW WE ARE GOING TO HAVE — AGAIN, FREE ENTERPRISE, THINGS HAPPEN AND PEOPLE HAVE TO CHURN AND THEY HAVE TO INVENT. OVER TIME, THEY ARE REMARKABLE ENGINES FOR CREATING PROSPERITY. AND THIS PRESIDENT IS A BUSINESSMAN WHO UNDERSTANDS THE IMPORTANCE OF THE ECONOMY. STEVE: WELL, HE ALSO UNDERSTANDS THE IMPORTANCE OF THE CALL CAR OF THE CALENCAR OF THE CALENDAR. AND THE REASON HE WAS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE BECAUSE NEW HAMPSHIRE IS THE FIRST IN THE COUNTRY STATE TO HAVE A PRIMARY. JOE BIDEN HAS BEEN THERE. HE HAS BEEN CAMPAIGNING. THE PROBLEM WITH JOE BIDEN. AND SOME OF HIS ADVISORS HAVE SUGGESTED, YOU KNOW, HE HAS MADE SO MANY GAFFES, SO MANY MISTAKES. MAYBE HE SHOULD SCALE BACK, IN FACT, THIS IS THE HEADLINE OUT AT THE HILL, BIDEN’S ALLIES FLOAT SCALING BACK EVENTS TO LIMIT GAFFES. AND THEN DAVID AXELROD TWEETED. THIS THIS IS BAD ADVICE. YOU CAN’T CLOISTER THE CANDIDATE AND WIN. HE CAN EITHER CUT IT OR HE CAN’T. AND THE ONLY WAY HE CAN PROVE HE CAN IS TO BE AN ACTIVE AND VIGOROUS CANDIDATE. IS HE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, FOR GOD’S SAKE. THAT ACCORDING TO DAVID AXELROD, MR. SPEAKER.>>YOU KNOW, DAVID, WHO RUNS A GREAT POLITICAL SCIENCE INSTITUTED OUT AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO IS, I THINK, ONE OF THE GREAT MASTERS OF MODERN POLITICS. AND I READ THE ARTICLE AND HE IS EXACTLY RIGHT. I MEAN, EITHER BIDEN CAN PLAY IN THE ARENA OR HE CAN’T PLAY IN THE ARENA. I THINK HE IS A GRADUALLY DECAYING CANDIDACY. I THINK HE GETS A LITTLE WEAKER EVERY WEEK. I THINK THE MOST INTERESTING THING AND I CONFESS I WAS WRONG ABOUT THIS. I THOUGHT KAMALA HARRIS WOULD COME ON STRONG. BUT THE GAP — HER FAILURE TO PERFORM HAS CREATED A GAP FOR ELIZABETH WARREN WHO NOW IS DOING SURPRISINGLY WELL. AND I JUST HAVE A HUNCH THAT BIDEN WILL CONTINUE TO DECAY. I THINK THAT SENATOR SANDERS WILL CONTINUE TO DECAY. AND I SUSPECT YOU WILL SEE BY THE TIME WE GET TO IOWA AND NEW HAMPSHIRE TOTALLY DIFFERENT DEMOCRATIC RACE. AINSLEY: IT’S INTERESTING THAT YOU BRING UP THAT ELIZABETH WARREN IS DOING BETTER BECAUSE IF YOU LOOK AT FOX NEWS POLL, JOE BIDEN IN MARCH, GOT 31%. NOW, HE IS STILL GETTING 31%. ELIZABETH WARREN IN MARCH, NEWT, WAS GETTING 4%. AND TODAY, NOW, 20%. THAT’S A HUGE JUMP RIGHT BEHIND HER IS — WELL, BERNIE SANDERS, HE WAS 23 IN MARCH. NOW HE IS 10. KAMALA HARRIS, SHE IS STILL AT 8% AND SHE WAS AT 8% IN MARCH.>>YEAH, AND I THINK SANDERS IS THE ONE WHO HAS THE BIGGEST PROBLEM. BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, WHEN HE WAS THE NOT HILLARY, HE WAS FRESH, HE WAS INTERESTING. ALL THE COLLEGE STUDENTS COULD GET EXCITED BY HIM. NOW HE IS JUST BERNIE. AND BEING ANGRY AND YELLING AT PEOPLE DOESN’T ACTUALLY WORK VERY OFTEN IN AMERICAN POLITICS. AND WE ARE WATCHING SANDERS SORT OF SELF-DESTRUCT PARTLY JUST BASED ON STYLE. AND PARTLY ON BOREDOM. THEY HAVE ALREADY HEARD EVERYTHING HE HAS TO SAY AND HE HASN’T GOT ANYTHING NEW. AS I SAID, I WAS WRONG. THE BIG SURPRISE TO ME HAS BEEN THE KAMALA HARRIS HAS BEEN SUCH A WEAK PERFORMER. AND ELIZABETH WARREN IS VERY, VERY SMART. SHE IS A LITTLE BIT LIKE YOUR HIGH SCHOOL CHEMISTRY TEACHER. YOU KNOW, SHE IS A LITTLE COLD. IS A LITTLE ALOOF. YOU KNOW SHE IS REALLY, REALLY SMART. YOU ARE NOT EXACTLY SURE YOU WANT HER TO BE IN CHARGE OF YOUR LIFE. AND I THINK SHE IS GOING TO COME ON STRONG. AND I JUST THINK THAT BIDEN’S PROBLEM IS IN THE END THERE IS NOT MUCH THERE. I MEAN, JOE IS A NICE, PLEASANT GUY. BUT IF YOU WATCH HIM OVER, AS I HAVE, FOR MOST OF HIS CAREER, HE IS A LITTLE BIT OF A DUFUS. I MEAN, HE DOESN’T QUITE GET THINGS RIGHT AND HE CAN’T QUITE DO THINGS RIGHT. BUT, YOU KNOW, I’M JUST OH JOE, YOU OUGHT TO LIKE ME BECAUSE I’M JOE AND LET’S GO HAVE A BEER TOGETHER. WELL, THAT PROBABLY DOESN’T GET YOU TO THE PRESIDENCY. I MEAN, YOU KNOW, IT GOT HIM TO THE SENATOR OF A VERY SMALL STATE BUT I DON’T THINK IT’S GOING TO GET HIM TO THE PRESIDENCY. DAN: MR. SPEAKER, YOUR THOUGHTS ON MR. TRUMP PAY BE EYEING HIS BIGGEST REAL ESTATE ACQUISITION YET, GREEN LAND. DID YOU READ THIS STORY YESTERDAY? IT’S TERRIFIC.>>LOOK, FIRST OF ALL, IF YOU ELECT A DEVELOPER PRESIDENT, GUESS WHAT HE THINKS ABOUT. STEVE: REAL ESTATE. DAN: PROPERTY, REAL ESTATE, RIGHT.>>LOOK, THE ONLY SURPRISE TO ME IF HE IS GOING TO LOOK AROUND I THINK WANT A PLACE TO PUT FOUR OR FIVE GOLF COURSES. I SOMEHOW DON’T THINK THAT WINTER GOLF IN GREENLAND IS GOING TO BE A BIG WINNER. AGAIN, TRUMP IS A MUCH BETTER MARKETEER THAN I AM. I DON’T KNOW THAT I WANT TO GO OUT AND TRY TO SELL THE MARKET ON YOU TOO HAVE A CHANCE TO PLAY ON A CHANCE TO PLAY ON GLACIER. STEVE: APPARENTLY IN THE 1860s WE WERE LOOKING INTO ACQUIRING THAT AREA AND THEN I THINK DURING THE TRUMAN YEARS THERE WAS SOME SUGGESTION WELL, COULD WE GET OUR HANDS ON GREENLAND? SO THIS IS NOT NECESSARILY A NEW IDEA.>>FIRST OF ALL, IT’S ALWAYS BEEN A LITTLE BIT OF AN ANOMALY. IT’S ACTUALLY OWNED BIDEN MARK. AND YOU HAD PERIODS, FOR EXAMPLE, WHEN THE NASA IS IS OCCUPIED DENMARK AND ACTUALLY GREENLAND PLAYED A HUGE ROLE IN THE INVASION IN NORMANDY BECAUSE THE ALLIED WEATHER STATION IN GREENLAND ENABLED US TO KNOW THAT THERE WOULD BE A BREAK IN THE STORM. AND EISENHOWER MADE THE DECISION THAT WE WOULD LAND DURING THIS BREAK. THE GERMANS WHO DID NOT HAVE ANY WEATHER STATIONS TO THE WEST DIDN’T KNOW WHAT WAS HAPPENING. AND THEY THOUGHT THE STORM WAS GOING TO CONTINUE. TO GREENLAND, IN A WAY, PLAYED A REMARKABLY CENTRAL ROLE AND THEN, OF COURSE, WE PUT THE HUGE AIR BASE UP THERE WHEN WE WERE COMPETING WITH THE SOVIET UNION. I HAVE A HUNCH THAT THE DEIGNS DAIGNS DAINNS DAINSS DAINS MAY NOT SELL US GREENLAND. YOU MAY END UP WITH A TRADE AGREEMENT AT SOME POINT. THE GREENLANDS WILL CONTINUE TO HOLD ONTO THE RIGHTS THERE. STEVE: THAT COULD BE THE
