During his Breitbart News Daily appearance on Wednesday morning, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said that his “total focus” for the general election between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump “is on the number 38” because that is the percentage that Hillary Clinton pays men more than women at the Clinton Foundation.

In his analysis of the contest between Clinton and Donald Trump, Gingrich told SiriusXM host Stephen K. Bannon that “my total focus is on the number 38,” which is “the percent the Clinton Foundation pays men more than women.”

“Nobody’s defended it, nobody’s explained it,” he said of this wage gap. “If we can get across to every woman in America that here’s somebody who says all these strong words, but by the way, her foundation that she and her husband control pays men 38% more? Every time you hear her talk about her concern for women, just remember, they pay men 38% more at the Clinton Foundation.”

“If you could drive that one fact into the national consciousness, I think her candidacy would collapse,” Gingrich predicted.

Gingrich also said it was “hard to know” what Hillary Clinton would do on foreign policy.

“Her advisers are all hard Left, the kind of people who don’t want to admit that a large part of what motivates Islamic supremacists is religion,” he observed. “They don’t want to admit this is a worldwide phenomenon you have to fight everywhere.”

“But it’s deeper than that,” he continued. “She tends to surround herself on foreign policy with nice theoretical people who do really well at getting a faculty tenure job at a university, but that doesn’t mean they have any idea about reality. If you look at her ‘reset with Russia,’ it’s a disaster. Seizing Crimea, seizing the eastern third of Ukraine, putting troops into Syria – all this occurred after her so-called ‘reset.’ Now, if that was successful, what would failure have looked like?”

“Her policy overall has not worked,” Gingrich pronounced, recalling the aforementioned nightmare in Libya – and the Americans who died in Benghazi – plus the “shambles” of Syria, and the “failure of the Clinton Foundation” in Haiti.

“Why should we believe that in the real world, doing real things, that Hillary Clinton has a clue how to be effective?” he asked.
