Gingrich: Trump Is a 'Brilliant Marketer'

Donald Trump supporter Newt Gingrich praised the GOP presidential nominee Sunday for proving to be "a fascinating historic figure" as well as "one of the most brilliant marketers I have ever seen."

In an interview on NBC News' "Meet The Press," the former House Speaker said Trump had the "the right big idea or ideas expressed in clear and simple language with the right tone."

"The reason Trump is such a fascinating historic figure is he managed to encompass those points," he said, even as he "hurt his campaign at times by saying things unwise."

"He's a funny paradox," he added. "On the one hand he is one of the most brilliant marketers I have ever seen. On the other hand for a while, he was undercutting himself. If he had not done that, he would be ahead by ten or 15 points right now. As it is, he has had to make a comeback."

Gingrich said he also worried about post-election turmoil, however — no matter who wins.

"I think tragically, we have drifted into an environment where if Hillary [Clinton] is elected, the criminal investigations will be endless," she said. "And if Trump is elected… the opposition will be so hostile and so direct and so immediate that it will be a continuing fight over who controls the country.

"I think that we are in for a long, difficult couple of years. Maybe a decade or more."

And he blasted the media as well.

"I worry the elite media has blindly refused to tell the truth," he said, referring to charges by the Trump campaign of corruption by Clinton during her stint as Secretary of State and her association with the Clinton Foundation.
