Gingrich: Giuliani ‘The Better Pick’ For Secretary Of State

Donald Trump should nominate Rudy Giuliani instead of Mitt Romney for secretary of state, Newt Gingrich declared Monday.

According to The Hill, the former House speaker told reporters at Trump Tower in New York City: “I think there are huge advantages to Rudy Giuliani, frankly. 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.”

Gingrich argued that the former New York City mayor “has the right temperament.” He added: “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 Kerry would be successful.” He was referring to John Kerry, the current secretary of state.

Gingrich, who is more closely aligned with the Tea Party than the GOP establishment, suggested that Romney may not be conservative enough for the Trump administration. “I think they’ve got to talk it through,” the Georgia Republican 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.”

Romney, the Republican presidential nominee in 2012, met with Trump on Sunday to discuss issues and the State Department job.
