V P Newt Gingrich

Recommended Posts

Newsmax’s White House correspondent John Gizzi was the first to break the storythat Newt was at the very top of Trump’s VP list.

Gizzi outlined Trump’s reasons: He likes Newt; Newt has been a supporter and can be trusted; Newt is a great communicator and will win debates; Newt has been “vetted” by previous races and intense media scrutiny; Newt knows how government works, especially Congress; Newt is both an insider and well-liked by grass-roots conservatives.

Trump also realizes, in this phase, he needs to move to the center, and even take some liberal positions.

But his right flank remains soft and very vulnerable. Newt Gingrich helps here as he gets high marks from all the core GOP constituencies: He is pro-life and pro-gun; he is a fiscal and defense hawk; and on foreign policy he is about as pro-Israel as Moses.
