Gingrich fears Trump administration might lose its nerve
At The Hill by Mallory Shelbourne --
Former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) said Sunday that he fears the incoming Trump administration will lose its nerve after the president-elect enters the White House.
“That they will lose their nerve,” Gingrich told ABC’s “This Week” when asked what he fears most about the Trump administration.
“I mean, they’re going to arrive in Washington and for them to be successful they have to sake out positions that Donald will not like and the left will hate.”
Gingrich served as a prominent surrogate for President-elect Donald Trump on cable news throughout his campaign. On Sunday, he said he worries that the Trump team will “give in.”
“I worry that when they realize how big the problem is, that they decide that they’re just going to do the best they can and give in,” he added.
