Gingrich: Race Relations Worse Under Obama Because of How Often He Has Hit the Police

‘In places like Chicago where 3,200 people have been killed during the Obama presidency, we better have a strategy that works’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

GINGRICH: "Well, the risk of once again being divisive. As long as you have Barack Obama doing what he did over the last few years. You’ve had 7 1/2 years of a black president. 7 1/2 years of a black attorney general. Gallup report race relations are worse than any time in the last 17 years. Why? Because how often has he hit the police. He hit the police in Cambridge and he was wrong. He hit the police in Ferguson, he was wrong. At what point does the president have some obligation to say — there are two parts of this. We have to understand the black in America and in places like Chicago where 3,200 people have been killed during the Obama presidency, we better have a strategy that works. We don’t."
