Gingrich: Republicans Will Unite No Matter Who Is Nominated

Fox News' "Happening Now"

By    |   Friday, 18 Mar 2016 01:36 PM

Donald Trump is "doing more than anyone since Ronald Reagan" to bring in a new generation of voters who like his message on nationalism, border control, and what he's saying about Washington, and if you're an "establishment type, all that stuff scares you to death," former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Friday.

"You have in Trump somebody who is bringing in independents and Democrats, and I find it ironic that people who don't want Trump say, luckily, a number of the upcoming primaries are closed," Gingrich told Fox News' "Happening Now" program. "They're basically saying we don't want to let Democrats and independents into our party. Now, how do you grow a majority party if you say to the Democrats and independents, we don't want you?"

Without Trump, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz would normally have been the most anti-establishment candidate for the GOP presidential nomination, said Gingrich and as both Cruz and Trump are anti-establishment, that should say to Washington insiders "that they've been doing something fundamentally wrong."

Meanwhile, Senate Republicans are wavering between disliking Cruz and fearing Trump, he continued, but in the end, there will be a nominee, and "that nominee's going to be the only practical alternative to Hillary Clinton and a very, very left-wing Supreme Court and control by union bosses through the government unions that are supporting Hillary," said Gingrich, "so I suspect almost all Republicans will come back together no matter who we nominate when this is all over."

And while there have been complaints that Trump is not a conservative, Gingrich argued that he is still an ally of conservatism.

"He's not a traditional, automatic conservative, and nobody ought to try to explain him that way," said Gingrich.
