Former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani is a better pick than Mitt Romney for secretary of state, Newt Gingrich said Monday.

"I think there are huge advantages to Rudy Giuliani frankly," Gingrich, the former GOP House Speaker told reporters in Trump Tower in New York City, according to The Hill.

"I think that, if you want someone who is going to go out and be a very tough negotiator for America and represent American interest in the way that Trump campaigned, I think that probably Rudy is the better pick and has the right temperament. Because we're going to need somebody who is a fighter. We're going to need somebody – the world is not going to change just because we show up and say please. If that was going to work, Secretary [of State John] Kerry would be successful."

Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and former Massachusetts governor, met with Trump on Saturday. Giuliani is one of Trump's most public and loyal allies.

Gingrich said Romney's views might differ too much with that of the President-elect.

"I think they've got to talk it through," Gingrich said. "I think that entirely is a question of the president-elect and deciding whether in fact Romney would be willing to be his secretary of State or in fact Romney would work to make Trump Romney's version of the presidency. I am for whoever the president-elect picks."
