Gingrich Makes HUGE Prediction About A Trump White House: ‘…Over The Next 8 Years’
But when former House Speaker Newt Gingrich returned to “The Kelly File” this week, the focus was power in the administration of President-elect Donald Trump.
And who is going to be a power player on Team Trump for the next few years.
Other than a beginning minute where Megyn Kelly tried to smear incoming White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon for some eyebrow-raising headlines on the Breitbart News site he used to lead, the interview was as marked by civility and good humor as the last one was marked by tension and distrust. (Probably because Gingrich didn’t take the Bannon bait.)
Gingrich predicted New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani — now rumored to be in the running for secretary of state — can have just about any job he wants in the White House (excepting Donald Trump’s, of course).

“If Rudy wants it, he’ll get it,” Gingrich said, noting Giuliani’s career as a federal prosecutor and mayor of the nation’s largest city had also given him a background for United States attorney general, or heading up the Department of Homeland Security.
In addition, Gingrich predicted Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, Trump’s strongest supporter during the campaign days, could have one of those domestic posts, too.
And as for his own future?
Gingrich was vague, but as one of the country’s best known Republican politicians — and a vocal, consistent cheerleader for the Trump cause even during the campaign’s darkest days — even a rumored vice presidential candidate at one point — it’s a good bet he’s not going too far out of the rooms where decisions are getting made.
As a former speaker who engineered the 1994 Republican takeover of the House of Representatives, Gingrich’s expertise is clearly on the domestic politics front, and judging by what he told Kelly, he sees any role in the Trump White House from that perspective.
“I want to be a general planner, looking out over the next eight years and trying to design how we fundamentally reshape the federal government,” Gingrich said of that massive undertaking.
After eight years of Barack Obama – whom Gingrich used to call the “food stamp president” – making Washington more efficient and accountable is going to be a pretty tall order. Since Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society, Democrats have conditioned poor and minority Americans to accept an all-powerful government providing for their physical needs and protecting them from the evil GOP. And in the Obama Era, Democrats have drifted so far to the left they can’t even tell themselves from socialists anymore.
That’s what half the country voted for when it voted for Hillary Clinton last week, and it’s what Republicans will have to uproot in the Donald Trump administration.
It’s not as sexy as the “sex” talk that dominated much of the presidential campaign – and the previous Kelly-Gingrich match-up. But that’s not the point.
The point is, it’s what governing a free people is all about, if they’re going to stay free.
