Gingrich: Would Be 'Disaster' for Trump to Pick Romney as Sec'y of State
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) discussed Donald Trump's dinner with former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-Mass.).
Romney met Trump at Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten's restaurant in New York on Tuesday.
Gingrich said Trump can choose anyone he wants to be secretary of state, and added that he would support Trump if he chose Romney.
But he had harsh words for the 2012 Republican nominee:
"I think it's a disaster. Romney's not like the "team of rivals" around Abraham Lincoln," he said, adding that Romney fought Trump at every turn and used vicious language against him.
He said Romney would be Trump's secretary of state on-paper, but was likely to be his own advocate:
"[Romney will] turn out to be Romney's secretary of state."
