Speaking to massive audience of several thousand supporters in Cincinnati, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump announced that “one way or another, Newt Gingrich will be involved in our government.”
The comment was made while Trump was addressing comments that the $51 million his campaign raised happened in June alone.
“Even Newt couldn’t believe that,” Trump joked.
When he signaled Gingrich on stage, the crowd began cheering “Newt, Newt, Newt!”
“Listen to these people, it sounds like a football game,” Trump joked. “I don’t know, Newt, are they booing or are they saying Newt? No, they love Newt, we all love Newt, Newt gets it.”
“I’m not saying it’s Newt,” Trump commented on his Vice Presidential pick. “But if it’s Newt nobody’s going to be beating him in those debates, that’s for sure. Nobody’s beating our Newt.”
“We like Newt,” Trump continued. “And I’ll tell you what, Newt has been my friend for a long time. And I’m not saying anything and I’m not telling even Newt anything, but I can tell you in one form or another, Newt Gingrich is going to be involved with our government.
Gingrich has long been seem as a top choice for Trump, given he was one of the first to publicly endorse him. But the mystery will remain until sometime next week, when the official announcement is made.”
