House Democratic "radicals" will try to place into another coronavirus relief bill as many items as they can that have nothing to do with the current crisis, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told Fox & Friends on Monday.

“I think it’s very likely that the House, where the radicals are in control, would love to blackmail the country,” the Georgia Republican said. “They tried on this last bill and failed."

He emphasized that Democrats are “salivating at the idea that they could produce a new bill with everything they’ve ever wanted in life and somehow blackmail the president into signing it.”

Gingrich, who was speaking via Skype from Italy, where his wife, Calista Gingrich, serves as U.S. ambassador to the Vatican, said any additional bill needs to serve the needs of the country and not “enact the Democratic Party platform.”

He conceded that the House will need a technical corrections act for such a large and complicated bill, but stressed that “until you see how [the original legislation that was just passed] is working, how do you know what you need more of?”
