Full title: Newt Gingrich: Trump has accomplished more than Clinton, Bush, and Obama combined - this is just the beginning
With his historic summit Tuesday with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, President Trump has once again done something astounding and unpredictable.
Yet, the surprise over the sudden summit should not have come as a surprise at all. By now we should be used to President Trump surprising us. Consider his record over the last four years.
Four years ago, in June 2014, almost no one would have dreamed Donald J. Trump would be a serious candidate for president. Then, nearly three years ago, when he announced his candidacy on June 16, 2015, almost no one thought he could be a dominant candidate.
In fact, my own conversion to Trump as a very real contender only occurred after his July 11, 2015 rally in Phoenix, which led my former colleague, Vince Haley, to come in the office and say: You had better watch what Trump is doing because his Phoenix rally was emotionally powerful when he turned the microphone over to the father whose child had been killed by an illegal immigrant.
Then, on August 6, 2015, I watched Trump gain the support of nearly a quarter of registered Republican voters (24 percent) in a CNN/ORC poll after the first Republican presidential debate. This was a huge lead in a field of 16 other candidates especially given that 58 percent of those asked had a favorable view of Trump.
Still, all the elites fervently believed Trump had lost the debate. The gap between the American people and the elites had never been clearer.
Two years ago, in June 2016, all the elite pundits were certain Trump would lose the presidential election to Hillary Clinton. Once again, they were wrong.

Trump. Defining the status quo government as ineffective, lazy, clueless, self anointed experts in everything, extremely expensive while producing negative results, defensive when targeted, and tend to scream like school girls from dug in fox holes.
Newt’s right, PDJT has done more than the 3 previous combined.
Newt Gingrich: Trump has accomplished more than Clinton, Bush, and Obama combined, which is why Ryan and McConnell are singing the praises of DJT and using his success for midterm victory!
Yes, he has, and even before them.
This man is so far greater than any other shlub in government that it boggles my mind to behold.
All I can say is that whenever trump is finished with his presidency, I do not want to go back to the way it was before.
I do not want to vote for any of those do nothing, lying ass jerks again. I do not want them, I do not need them at all. None of them.
He's given up a lot to do this.
And the Dems still fight him tooth and nail....and I think they're driving their constituents away...because they have "0" to show under Obama and putting all their bets on Hillary....because they had no one else....and they still don't have a 2020 candidate.
Give 0 credit for one thing, he devastated whatever bench depth the Dems had.
Yes, and one would assume the only reason he didn’t include Poppy in that statement was deference to his age.
(As opposed to #NeverTrumpers Ditch and PRyno.)
America was divided by Zer0 for 8 long years.
You make an excellent point.
No matter what he does and the successes he has which are many; Schumer, Pelosi and other Democrats have no compliments nor a good word for him.
It’s hurting them badly and I believe they’re blinded and just can’t see it.
Go away, Newt—Don’t care what you have to say anymore.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
“All I can say is that whenever trump is finished with his presidency, I do not want to go back to the way it was before.”
i know. that’s the bad part. there’s not another like Trump ... unless perhaps one of his sons ...
I think I'd pass on one of his sons, however President Pompeo is looking promising.
our allies have been happy because we have carried the allied military burden for 73 years since the end of World War II
As well as pulling their ass out of the fire in the first place.
He is really among the rarest of the rare great individuals. People such as him do not come along often at all.
He deserves a place on Mount Rushmore. Not joking.
Is the “Thou Shalt Not Criticize All Bushes”, “Everything Bush is Holy and Godly” ban been lifted?
