President Donald Trump should take a calm approach with this week's debate and allow Democrat nominee Joe Biden to talk more because he "doesn't help himself talking," former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Monday.
"My hope is that he will be more like he was with Savannah Guthrie: calm," Gingrich said on Fox News' "Fox and Friends" about Trump's debate and town hall performances so far. "I thought he was too intense and aggressive with Chris Wallace."
He added that it has become an "art form" on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" to show how "boring Biden is," and Trump should have only two or three big questions for Biden.
"Are you going to pack the court or not?" Gingrich said one of those questions should be. "Are you going to admit that you knew about your son making tens of millions of dollars from China, Ukraine, or Russia or not? Are you going to admit that huge tax increases are going to cause a depression?"
Trump should also point out his successes in fighting the coronavirus pandemic, including saving "2 million lives by stopping flights from China and Europe and ramping up the production of health equipment," said Gingrich.
He should then point out that Biden "opposed every step of it," said Gingrich, and then say, "Now you want to pretend like you didn't do it."
The truth is, Gingrich said, that Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi "opposed every single step Trump took in the first two months of the COVID pandemic."
Meanwhile, Democrats are "not going to win" because the support is behind Trump, as shown in his rallies that are being held while Biden "is in hiding," said Gingrich.
"He can't answer about packing the Supreme Court," said Gingrich. "Biden's hope is that the national media will protect him, that Twitter will protect him, [that] he will sweep into the White House, work every other day and Kamala Harris the rest of the time. It's amazing three weeks out to have a candidate take five days off. People ought to think about that."
