Gingrich: Trump 'Doesn't Like to Fire People, Period'

Fox News' "Your World"

By    |   Tuesday, 25 Jul 2017 08:52 PM

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on Tuesday said Donald Trump, "doesn't like to fire people," when asked about the president's public criticism of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

"I think Donald Trump doesn't like to fire people, period," Gingrich told Fox News' Neil Cavuto. "Second, he's communicated his unhappiness, but he hasn't communicated, I think, a final decision."

Trump last week slammed Sessions for recusing himself from the Justice Department's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, telling The New York Times he never would have appointed him had he known he would do that. The president took another swipe at the attorney general Monday morning, calling him "our beleaguered A.G." in a tweet.

Gingrich did not agree with the president's tactics.

"This was one of his most loyal supporters," Gingrich said. "I think the president was wrong to go about it the way he's doing it, and I don't think it, frankly, helps him. I think it creates turmoil for everybody who's for Trump, and there's confusion about what's going to happen next. I also think it's a story that's not yet finished, and I wouldn't rush to judgment on it."
