Gingrich on Potential Kerry 2020 Run: The More Dems the Better, 'Trump Will Beat Any of Them'
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich welcomed a potential 2020 presidential run by former Secretary of State John Kerry.
According to reports, the former Massachusetts senator and 2004 Democratic presidential nominee told Palestinian officials he may run and urged them to "be strong" and bide time during the Trump administration.
Gingrich said he does not believe Kerry would have been hinting to the Palestinians that Trump won't be in office much longer.
"I'd be very, very surprised if [former] Secretary of State and Senator John Kerry would have said anything that was that overtly anti-American. ... It's crazy," he said on "Fox & Friends" Thursday.

But he added that a large Democratic field will only help Trump's re-election chances, expressing confidence that the economy will keep growing into 2020.
"The more Democrats who run for president, the better off we're going to be. I think Trump will beat any of them."
He said the "contrast" between lackluster job growth during the Obama years and Trump's first four years will resonate with voters.
Gingrich predicted Republicans will also benefit from the "boom" in the November midterms.
