Barack Obama's "radical left" ideology was on full display during his recent trip to Cuba, where he posed in front of a mural of Che Guevara, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said.
"Obama is … in many ways the first anti-American president," Gingrich said Wednesday on Fox News Channel's "Hannity."
"I mean, you go out and you watch him and you think, how can you stand in front of a mural of Che Guevara, who was a murdering thug, who was viciously anti-American?
"How can you be seen at a ballgame with a dictator who, by the way, was arresting people while Obama was arriving?"
The dictatorship in Cuba has done nothing to accommodate the United States, Gingrich said, just as the North Koreans and Iranians do nothing.
"All of them treat Obama with contempt and because he earns it," he said. "He behaves in ways that are weak, and he allows them to take advantage of him, and I think that's a fact."
Hillary Clinton, Obama's former secretary of state, will do no better, Gingrich said.
"Hillary Clinton, who last night after the Brussels bombing said, we shouldn't really be afraid," he said. "I mean, is she just out of touch? I know she's had Secret Service since 1992, but the fact is the rest of us don't have Secret Service, and we have every reason to be afraid."
