Don’t count Newt Gingrich among those who doubt Donald Trump’s conservative credentials.
With the Republican presidential front-runner clearing the way Tuesday night to becoming the party’s nominee with an easy win in the Indiana primary, the former GOP speaker likened the real estate tycoon to Dwight D. Eisenhower and said he may turn out to be “the most effective anti-left leader in our lifetime.”
Appearing on Fox News’ “Hannity,” Gingrich had a message to conservatives in the #NeverTrump movement who vow not to vote for Trump.
“[Trump] is against political correctness. He is against bureaucracy,” Gingrich said. “He places American nationalism first which I think we desperately need.”
“I think Trump could be a return to a more of an Eisenhower kind of realism that none-the-less is very conservative,” he continued, after taking a shot at Secretary of State John Kerry for negotiating “phony” peace agreements.
“And he may do more to dismantle the left than anybody in our lifetime,” the former speaker added with conviction.
Lofty praise indeed …. Gingrich then reminded conservatives of the alternative.
“The other side is, if you’re not for Donald Trump, you’re effectively for Hillary Clinton,” he concluded.
