Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich probably run for the Republican presidential nomination — and he’s not pulling any punches against President Barack Obama.

Newt Gingrich, Barack Obama,He described the president as a "perfectly fine, extraordinarily brilliant, sadly shallow, left-wing activist who has never yet become president," at a small fundraiser in Manchester, N.H. Wednesday, the Concord Monitor reports. "He's the only permanent candidate we've ever had in the White House."

Gingrich says he is "calmly confident" he can win the presidential nomination, but he also said he’d be happy to support real estate mogul/reality TV star Donald Trump.

"If my choice was Barack Obama or Donald Trump, I would have zero hesitation saying that Donald Trump is dramatically less dangerous to America's future than Barack Obama, and I'd be happy to campaign for him," Gingrich said.
