(FixThisNation.com) – On Monday, former President Donald Trump won in the Iowa caucuses with a near-record margin. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich stated during an appearance on “Hannity” that Trump’s victory came despite the legal troubles he was facing, and the media’s attempts to present that Trump would be losing in the state. Still, as he pointed out, the people of Iowa clearly came out to say that Trump was their candidate.
The former Speaker, who had served in that position from 1995 to 1999, stated that he was the Republican nominee and that people needed to get over it. He specifically pointed out that the media was unwilling to state that Trump would win the GOP nomination because they needed to create some hype in order to get more people watching them.
Gingrich pointed out that currently there was no path for a “number two” candidate and that all other candidates were irrelevant as Trump would be dominating the polls in the country. He added that Trump was leading an anti-establishment national political movement and that he could not be simply seen as a presidential candidate.
The former Speaker also pointed out that while currently Iowa is viewed as a red state, it used to be a swing state and that former President Barack Obama was the last Democrat to have won the state. The state’s last Democratic Senator Tom Harkin also left office in 2015.
In the two previous presidential elections, Trump has won the state both times against Hillary Clinton and President Joe Biden.
