Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) accused the hosts of Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” of creating the successful candidacy of Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump during an interview Monday morning.
“Donald Trump gets up in the morning, tweets to the entire planet at no cost, picks up the phone, calls you, has a great conversation for about eight minutes, which would have cost him a ton in commercial money, and meanwhile his opponents are all out there trying to raise the money to run an ad,” Gingrich said.
Gingrich’s comments came after show hosts Brian Kilmeade and Steve Doocy marveled at the fact that the billionaire businessman has spent very little money on his campaign.
“Well, that’s because of you guys,” Gingrich insisted.
“Look, you could say that Trump is the candidate ‘Fox & Friends’ invented,” Gingrich said. “He was on your show I think more than any other show.”
