Gingrich on Trump Admin: 'He's Going to Want People Who Are Committed to Draining the Swamp'
Donald Trump is working to assemble his cabinet, and Newt Gingrich says that the president-elect is looking for people who share his vision for bringing change to Washington, D.C.
"This city has grown into sort of an incestuous jungle. It's one of the highest income areas in America, and it's also one of the bluest," Gingrich said on "Sunday Morning Futures" today. "This is sort of the center of anti-Trumpism."
He said that Trump is looking for the antithesis of bureaucratic Washington establishment insiders.
"He's going to want people who are committed to draining the swamp," Gingrich said.
Maria Bartiromo asked Gingrich if Trump is going to follow through on all of his proposed policies, including the border wall, the Muslim ban and repealing ObamaCare.
Gingrich said that some policies may change slightly as they are put into action, but Trump's legislative priorities will remain the same.
"President-elect Trump, he's a smart guy, and he's run big systems," Gingrich said. "He's run more big systems that any president since Dwight David Eisenhower, who had been the commander in Europe."
"He's going to think through what he needs to make the White House work on his terms."
