There’s a lot of post-election discussion in Washington Dc about the “Never Trump” movement and how to properly reconcile the factions within the Republican Party that emerged during the contentious 2016 campaign.
While representatives from the Trump movement begin to figure out how to find common ground with influential thought leaders who opposed the Repulican nominee, apparently former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich has no time for the exercise.
Wednesday on Fox News, Gingrich told Sean Hannity that a Trump Administration is “going to be among the most extraordinary, creative, inventive, exciting periods in all of American political history.”
“The little, whiny, sniveling negative cowards who were ‘Never Trumpers’ are beneath our paying attention to them. Let them drift off into the ashbin of history while we go ahead and work with Donald Trump and with the House and Senate Republicans to create a dramatically new future.”
Gingrich also pointed out that he suspects many Republicans in Congress will attempt to re-direct Trump’s plan for his first 100 days in office.
“Their technique will be to say ‘Oh, be reasonable. Don’t push too hard. Don’t force the issue. Find a compromise with Democrats. Maybe he shouldn’t name one of the justices who are conservative who’s on his list. Maybe he should find a nice moderate acceptable to the Democrats,'” Gingrich said. “Down that road is a disaster. And so we have to be aware that the danger is not that they’re going to actively fight. The danger is that they’re going to opt for honeyed words of subversion.”
