Many politicians are publicly responding to the latest terrorist attacks in Nice, France. Newt Gin1grich is taking the opportunity to throw one last Hail Mary to be Trump’s running mate. Ben Mankiewicz (What The Flick?), John Iadarola (ThinkTank), and Jimmy Dore, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
"Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has suggested testing all US Muslims to see if they believe in Sharia, and deporting those who do.
Sharia is Islamic religious law based on the Koran, the life of Muhammad and the rulings of Islamic scholars.
Mr Gingrich's comments follow an attack in the French city of Nice, which has killed at least 84 people.
His comments echo the sentiments of Donald Trump, who has said Muslims should be banned from entering the US.
"Western civilisation is in a war. We should frankly test every person here who is of a Muslim background and if they believe in Sharia they should be deported," Mr Gingrich told Fox News.
"Sharia is incompatible with western civilisation. Modern Muslims who have given up Sharia, glad to have them as citizens. Perfectly happy to have them next door," he added.”*
