Former Speaker of the House and Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich join FoxNews Sunday’s Chris Wallace to talk about the 2016 electionAnd the remaining participants. Wallace continued to press Gingrich on things Donald Trump has said about the Latino judge presiding over the Trump University case.
Gingrich gave his unadulterated opinion about how he thought it was a bad idea, but Wallace kept pressing for deeper condemnation from the former speaker. This morning Trump responded when he joined Fox and Friends.
From The Hill:
Donald Trump on Monday said he was caught off guard by Newt Gingrich’s defense of a judge overseeing lawsuits against Trump University.
“I was surprised at Newt,” the presumptive GOP presidential nominee said on Fox News’s “Fox and Friends.” “I thought it was inappropriate what he said.”
Gingrich last weekend criticized Trump’s comments about Judge Gonzalo Curiel’s Hispanic heritage.“I don’t know what Trump’s reasoning was, and I don’t care,” the former Speaker said in a Saturday email to The Washington Post.
“His description of the judge in terms of his parentage is completely unacceptable,” added Gingrich, who has previously endorsed the real estate mogul and has been mentioned as a possible Trump running mate.
