Gingrich Explains Why GOP Establishment Will Support Trump If He Wins Nomination
Newt Gingrich went "On The Record" tonight and said that Donald Trump will get the support of the Republican Party establishment if he goes on to win the GOP presidential nomination.
Gingrich said that Trump is such a phenomenon because he's "very big" in every way.
"He's big financially, he's big in his ideas, he's big in his aggressiveness, he's physically big," Gingrich said.
The former Speaker of the House asserted that with all the chaos around the world, people want to have a leader who projects strength, something that Trump most definitely does.
If Trump wins the Republican nomination, will the GOP establishment get behind him 100 percent? Greta Van Susteren asked.
Gingrich argued they will, because the alternative is Hillary and Bill Clinton.
He said that the total picture of Hillary - from her lying about Benghazi to her email server controversy to questions about the money that poured into the Clinton Foundation - is one that Republicans will absolutely reject.
"You take the total picture [and] you think to yourself, 'Do you really want this in the White House?'" Gingrich said. "And I think at least for our party and our base, the answer's going to be overwhelmingly, 'No.'"
"People are going to say, 'Whoever the Republican nominee is, I am for them.'"
