Newt Gingrich joined Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren on Monday to explain the reasoning behind what’s becoming widely known as the “Trump phenomenon.”
“It’s like a science fiction film, where you shoot at him and he gets bigger,” Gingrich said. “You’re dealing with somebody who is totally different from anybody in modern politics.”
Gingrich said if Donald Trump’s poll numbers continue at 25 percent or higher, he will win the Republican nomination for president.
The former Speaker of the House of Representatives expounded on the fact that Trump can play by his own rules because, unlike the the political establishment – he’s beholden to no one.
Gingrich called Trump the biggest “communicator of earned media, maybe in American political history.” He explained that Trump is free to be himself, and wherever he goes, the media will follow.
“It’s unbelievable,” he said.
Gingrich also touched on Hillary Clinton’s floundering candidacy, predicting she likely won’t be the next Democrat nominee for president.
“If Hillary implodes, you’re going see a vacuum like you haven’t seen in years,” he said.
