Gingrich: Trump Isn’t Going To “Drain The Swamp”

Ex-House Speaker Newt Gingrich noted in a recent interview that Donald Trump is now adopting a different tone as president-elect and is dropping the long-held campaign promise to “drain the swamp.”

Gingrich explained that he was told Trump “now says [the phrase] was cute, but he doesn’t want to use it anymore.”

Gingrich is a close adviser to Trump, and remarked that he personally likes "drain the swamp" because it “vividly illustrates the problem, because all people in this city who are the alligators are going to hate the swamp being drained.”

“But, you know, he is my leader, and if he decides to drop the swamp and the alligator I will drop the swamp and the alligator,” he commented.

Trump has pointed out that in his “thank you” tour rallies, his supporters are more relaxed now after his election victory.

"You people were vicious, violent, screaming, 'Where's the wall? We want the wall!' Screaming, 'Prison! Prison! Lock her up!' I mean, you are going crazy. I mean, you were nasty and mean and vicious and you wanted to win, right?" Trump remarked during a stop in Florida a few days ago.

He continued: "But now, you're mellow and you're cool and you're not nearly as vicious or violent, right? Because we won, right?"
