Gingrich: If Giuliani Wants Secretary of State 'He'll Get It'

Fox News' "The Kelly File"

If former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani wants to be secretary of state in the Donald Trump administration, the job is all his, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said.

The Associated Press reported Monday that Giuliani is the frontrunner for the position as the nation's top diplomat.

Gingrich, appearing on Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File," said he has no inside information, but added, "If Rudy wants it, he'll get it."

The former mayor was an early and enthusiastic Trump supporter, Gingrich noted, and would be great for other positions as well.

"I thought he might prefer attorney general, where he would be brilliant, or homeland security, where his experience at 9/11 will be great," Gingrich said. "I think he'll be fabulous to have him as secretary of state. He's already known worldwide. He is a great manager. And he would do a lot both to represent America, which is what we need, and to reform the State Department, which we need. I'd be enthusiastic if he picks Rudy."

Asked about his own future, Gingrich said he rather be the "general planner, looking out over the next eight years and trying to design how we fundamentally reshape the federal government," much as Harry Hopkins did for President Franklin Roosevelt.
