Former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) slammed “elites” in an interview broadcast Sunday for not knowing how to deal with the Trump administration’s decision to freeze government aid to Pakistan.

“It has so thoroughly shocked the elites that we actually are going to protect America, and defend America, and that we’re actually going to render judgement,” Gingrich told radio host John Catsimatidis in an interview on AM 970 in New York.

“That is such a shocking moment for a lot of our elites that they don’t know how to deal with it.”

The former Speaker’s comments came days after the Trump administration announced that it would suspend nearly all security aid to Pakistan, potentially affecting as much as $1.3 billion in annual aid, according to The New York Times.
