Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has sounded off about the ongoing unrest in some major cities across the US ahead of the 2020 presidential election.
In a Sunday interview on New York WABC 770 AM radio’s ‘The Cats Roundtable’, Gingrich said it is “beginning to sink in” across the country how “pro-criminal and anti-police the modern Democrats have become.”
Breitbart reports: He added that billionaire George Soros is “spending millions of dollars” across the country to help “elect pro-criminal, anti-police district attorneys.”

“I think the degree to which people are learning about how pro-criminal and anti-police the modern Democrats have become,” Gingrich told host John Catsimatidis. “And I think that’s been a big deal. And the very fact that George Soros is going around the country spending millions of dollars to elect pro-criminal, anti-police district attorneys, that’s beginning to sink in.”
Gingrich noted that New York City has seen a “165% increase in shootings” from August 2019 to August 2020.
“That’s just a breathtaking decay in the system,” he declared. “And most of it is due to [Mayor Bill de Blasio] and [Gov. Andrew Cuomo] and this bill that they passed that provides for no bail.”
“[T]he signal has been sent — not just in New York, but Chicago, Seattle, Portland, St. Louis, Baltimore, Philadelphia — that, you know, criminals are going to be fine. The Democrats aren’t going to deal with them,” added Gingrich.
