Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich stopped by ‘Hannity’ on Thursday night, praising President Trump for his hurricane response and bipartisan debt-ceiling deal; adding the President was trying to “continue the momentum” of working together on behalf of the American people.
“If the only thing the media can criticize is Melania’s shoes, and that’s basically all they had, and you saw the Governor, and you saw local officials, and you saw the federal government really come together in an organized fashion,” said Sean. “Doesn’t that tell you something about where people’s mindset is?”
“I think the country is delighted and encouraged that you can have an effective government that works. You can have everybody -state, local, federal- pulling in the same direction,” said Gingrich. “You have people who are committed to doing their job, you have the American military being mobilized.”
“Let me say, on behalf of the President, I think part of the reason he cut the [debt-ceiling] deal he did yesterday, on a bipartisan basis to give 90-day funding […] He was trying to continue a momentum of being together, of doing something together, and showing that the American government can act quickly,” Newt added.
“If they can get the money out of Washington to Houston this week […] I think that’s another signal to the American people that maybe some things are coming together, and maybe President Trump who has a natural background in construction and at property… maybe he is going to pull the country together the way it came together in Texas,” said the former Speaker.
“You’ve got to hope so,” added Sean.
