‘Nobody Can Fight Him’: Trump Virtually Untouchable in the Republican Party, Newt Gingrich Says

Former President Donald Trump is virtually untouchable in the Republican Party even after leaving office last month, said former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

“What’s very striking is that President Trump still has such enormous reach in the party that nobody can fight him,” Gingrich said on WABC 770 AM in New York on Sunday. “You can complain about him. You can criticize him. But McConnell can’t possibly fight Trump. He doesn’t have a big enough base,” he said, referring to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

Gingrich added that the spat over Trump in the GOP is “also a reminder that there is an establishment insider party that sits around at cocktail parties in Washington, and then there’s this huge country outside of Washington.”

“That country in 2015, by about 2-1, did not like the Republican leadership in the Congress. That was the forerunner of us ending up with Trump as a presidential nominee,” said Gingrich. “McCarthy has been much smarter as the House Republican leader to recognize his ability to get the extra seats [to win the House] rests almost entirely on working with Trump, not picking a fight with him,” he said, referring to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).

Am I the only one thinking that Newt would be THE perfect VP nominee to run with Trump in 2024?

DC Pubs are living in fantasyland if they think we will forget who fought for us and who didn't.
