In Cincinnati speech, Trump says Gingrich ‘will be involved in our government’

Ever the showman, Donald Trump teased and tantalized Wednesday but didn’t give up the goods on whether Newt Gingrich would become his running mate.

“I’ll tell you one thing, folks: I am not saying it’s Newt, but if it is Newt, nobody’s going to beat him in those debates, that’s for sure,” Trump told around 5,000 at the Sharonville Convention Center who chanted “Newt, Newt, Newt…”

Earlier, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee said, “In one form or another, Newt Gingrich will be involved in our government.”

The suburban Cincinnati event — in the heart of Republican territory that any GOP candidate must win big — was the first formal appearance of the former U.S. House speaker from Georgia with Trump.

    Although I have said Donald Trump should name a VP that can move his agenda through Congress, Trump may name Gingrich as chief of staff or as his congressional liaison.

    Newt is 73. If Donald is looking for a veep that could possibly succeed him in eight years Newt is probably not the man. No one in their right mind would elect an 81 year old for president assuming Gingrich is still alive and active in 2024. I’m not sure that having a ticket full of senior citizens is the best way to attract younger voters.

    I have always liked Newt Gingrich and I remember the great work he did in Congress to make Clinton go down in history as a good president. All the things that are good they are touting came from Newt Gingrich.
