As VP-elect Mike Pence controls the transition team and as Trump’s administration is slowly pieced together, a bombshell was dropped today. Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House, will not be in the Trump cabinet.
Gingrich, a longtime supporter of Trump, made this statement earlier today:
“I will not be in the Cabinet. I intend to be focused on strategic planning, which is exactly what I did under the Bush administration.”
2012 GOP Presidential Nominee, Mitt Romney, will meet with President-elect Trump to discuss a potential position in the Cabinet. Romney is being considered for Secretary of State.
Romney called Trump a “phony” and a “fraud” back in March, so if Romney gets the job — many Trump fans may not be happy. It was sad to see Romney stab the President-elect in the back, especially after President-elect Trump endorsed Romney in 2012.
Romney did congratulate President-elect Trump on his victory last week though. So maybe Trump and Romney have restored friendship.
The other people that are currently being considered for Sec. of State are:
- Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani
- South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley
- Tennessee Senator Bob Corker
Tell me what you think about these revelations!
