Newt Gingrich: Cruz-Kasich Anti-Trump Talk Not Helping GOP
With a newly formed alliance, Republican presidential hopefuls Ted Cruz and John Kasich are aiming to stop Donald Trump from getting the party’s nomination.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich doesn’t see the newly formed union between Cruz and Kasich being helpful to the GOP.
“They’re increasingly ‘the guys who stop Trump,’” Gingrich told FOX Business Network’s Varney & Co. “What does that do for you as a party? They’re not saying they’re the guys with the better program, the guys with the better ideas—they’re the guys who stop Trump. And I think that’s a sign of how dominant he’s become that they’re reduced now to this narrow blocking definition of their campaigns.”
Gingrich also issued a warning about what could happen if the GOP nominee isn’t supported by their constituents.
“If you want Hillary Clinton and a radical Supreme Court that eliminates all of your constitutional rights, don’t be for the Republican nominee. If you want to stop Hillary Clinton and you want to stop the Court from going very radical, then you better be for the Republican nominee,” the former Speaker of the House said.
