President-elect Donald Trump's U.S. foreign policy pivot from the "failed" Obama administration that has "weakened" America internationally — even as it comes via Twitter — will serve "notice" to Russia and the world "we can outproduce everybody."

"This is the same Donald Trump the liberals were terrified was going sell out to [Russian President Vladimir] Putin, who's now pivoted and said, 'Look — to quote Gen. [James] Mattis — we can be your best friend or we can be your worst enemy,'" former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told host Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday," as posted by Mediaite.

"You want to make threatening speeches, let me show you what a threatening speech looks like, and he does it in 140 characters."

Wallace asked Gingrich if the president's tweeting was "really any way to conduct foreign policy?"

"We might as well get used to it," Gingrich responded. "This is who he is. It's how he’s gonna operate, whether it’s brilliant or stupid. He beat 16 rivals, then he beat Hillary Clinton, and he beat the elite media. He ain’t giving it up."

Moving from the "total failure" of President Barack Obama, secretaries of State John Kerry and Hillary Clinton, per Gingrich, the pointed tweeting was "brilliant."

"He's able to over and over again to set the agenda — at almost no cost," Gingrich added.

The former speaker said Trump's Twitter positions on Putin, Russia and nuclear armament are varied for very good reasons, because there are "places you compete and places you cooperate" as Putin is both friend and foe — and everyone will know where Trump and America stand on each specific issue.
