Newt Meets Donald
December 5, 2011 - 2:15 pm
Today, Newt Gingrich met with Donald Trump in New York. You can watch the video of their post-meeting press conference here.
Defending the idea of Donald Trump hosting a GOP Presidential debate, Newt stated:
“If we’re trying to figure out how to create jobs–I think one of the differences between my party and the other party is we actually go to people who know how to create jobs, to figure out how to create jobs.”
Responding to Newt’s defense of Trump, a Ron Paul campaign spokesman said:
“We agree, of course, with former Speaker Gingrich — this is a country of people of enormous talent. Those who deliver thousands of babies like Dr. Paul and those who spend their time focusing on promoting themselves for profit. We even have those who lobby, but don’t call it such because, as they say, they can make $60,000 per speech. While those of us in the Paul camp might disagree with Newt Gingrich about whether Donald Trump is the right man to host a serious political debate, we do agree New York is a wonderful place to go at Christmas. We are sure two average Americans like Speaker Gingrich and Donald Trump will have a wonderful time picking out gifts for their wives. We suggest a place called Tiffany’s, we her it is quite nice this time of year and given their celebrity status they can probably get special deals and $500,000 lines of credit.”
