Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy on Thursday said a number of President Donald Trump's advisers reacted to the Democratic Presidential debate by suggesting Democrats have embraced extremism.

Ruddy, speaking to CNN's Chris Cuomo from Osaka, Japan, where Trump is in attendance at the G-20 Summit, also defended America's economic growth under the president and his grit and determination on getting results for the American people.

"I didn't speak to the president this morning about it, but I did speak to a number of his advisers, and everybody is sort of saying this really shows what the Democratic Party is about, the extremism that we saw in that debate," Ruddy said in reference to the moment during the debate when Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio put their hands up when NBC's Lester Holt asked for a show of hands on which candidate would abolish private insurance.

"Here the president is at the G-20, he's not here for a photo-op, he's here to get jobs for Americans, protect our businesses, grow real income. We've had about a 50% increase in real income under this president, almost double what Obama had done, and that's because he's focused on doing the business of the country."

When Cuomo questioned the 50% figure, Ruddy pointed to the first two years under Trump compared to former President Barack Obama's eight years.

"He's raised GDP growth by 50% . . . Look, you were talking about the tweets. What is he doing? I was speaking to the president the other day and he said I'm going to really focus on India, they are the worst trade offender," Ruddy said.

"They just slapped tariffs on the United States, and he put out a tweet last night. He's meeting with Prime Minister [Narendra] Modi tomorrow. And he said in the past Obama and even Republicans were guilty of this," Ruddy added.

Ruddy noted he had just come from India traveling with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Pompeo, Ruddy said, had made getting a fair trade deal with New Delhi a priority item for the administration.

"They [previous presidents] looked the other way as America was put down in these tariff regimes and the president didn't do an easy deal," Ruddy said. "Everybody said he's going to cave to China. He's fighting for the best deal with the United States. I think his priorities are good."
