 Trump ally Newt Gingrich says his big worry about President-elect Donald Trump's incoming administration is that they'll "lose their nerve" – and faced with flak from the left, "give in."

In an interview with ABC News' "This Week," the former Speaker of the House said the new Trump administration will have to take positions the "left will hate."

"Look, they're going to arrive in Washington, and for them to be successful they have to stake out positions that [Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile] will not like and the left will hate," Gingrich said.

"I'm worried that when they realize how big the problem is, that they decide that they're just going to do the best they can and give in."

Gingrich said he expects there to be considerable push-back on reform measures – from the environment to school choice.

"My deepest concern is that they're going to arrive, you're going to have the greens going crazy," he said.

"You're going to have the government employees going crazy about civil service reform. You're going to have the teachers union going crazy over school choice. And these are pretty nonnegotiable. I mean, if you're serious about school choice, there is no agreement with the teachers union."
