Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich has endorsed Donald Trump for president of the United States.
Appearing on Fox News’s “Hannity” on Wednesday, Gingrich said, “I endorse Donald Trump. I want to work very hard for the Republican nominee.”(RELATED: Gingrich: ‘Trump May Turn Out To Be The Most Effective Anti-Left Leader In Our Lifetime’)
“I didn’t get involved at that level prior because I had very good friends. John Kasich is a great, personal friend of mine,” Gingrich said. “[crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] ran a great campaign. And I tried to be an objective observer but here’s what I think makes the difference, because my background as a historian teaches me to sort of let the facts tell me what’s going on, my first real break point candidly was the night that he was on with Megyn Kelly in the first debate in August and everybody in the elite said he lost the debate, it was terrible… and then as I watched the numbers that night on Facebook, on Google, on Twitter, by 65 to 75 percent, people said Trump won.”
Noticing that, Gingrich said, “Something very profound is going on… he is sending a signal that nobody in the elite gets, but two thirds of the Republican voters get.”
