Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich warns that it is “very dangerous” for the United States to be propping up the regime in Egypt with new American aid.

Secretary of State John Kerry has just released $250 million in U.S. aid to Egypt, supposedly as a reward for political reforms.

But Gingrich tells Newsmax he has “grave doubts about the whole Muslim Brotherhood government of Egypt. It’s very, very dangerous for us to be propping them up.

“The political opposition was opposed to us giving them the money and this administration seems to be willing to tolerate a great deal of Islamic extremism that’s very anti-Christian and very anti-Jewish,” Gingrich says.

“I don’t frankly understand why they’re so tolerant with some of the things that are going on in the Middle East that we are funding.”
