For a while now Newt Gingrich has been rumored to be one of the top picks for Trump’s running mate.
At a campaign rally Wednesday night in Cincinnati, Ohio, Donald Trump supporters began chanting “Newt, Newt, Newt” when the topic of a vice president came up during Trump’s speech at his campaign rally in Cincinnati, Ohio on Wednesday night.
Trump then responded to the crowd with “I like that too. We like Newt,”
He then told the crowd “Newt has been my friend for a long time and I’m not saying anything…but I can tell you in one form or another, Newt Gingrich is going to be involved with our government, that I can tell you.” “Newt is going to be involved.”
In the past Trump has said he wants to choose a more traditional politician than himself, someone who has some experience navigating Washington. The former U.S. Speaker of the House of Representatives definitely fits this criteria.
