Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is backing President Trump’s push to increase stimulus checks to $2,000.

In an interview Tuesday, Gingrich said middle class Americans have been the “big losers” amid the coronavirus shutdowns, particularly in Democrat-run states. He added, $2,000 checks would help the average American struggling from the “mess created by some governments.”

Gingrich went on to compare the pandemic to World War II by stating the disaster is being made worse by Democrat governors who have been crushing small businesses in various states like California, New York and Illinois.
