Donald Trump is considering picking Newt Gingrich for a top national security post should he be elected president, Bloomberg reports.
“A national-security role in a potential Trump administration could be a good fit for Gingrich. He holds a doctorate in European history and is known for his intellectual curiosity. In Congress, he immersed himself in military affairs and intelligence issues, and in 2001 he was named by then-President George W. Bush to serve as a member of the Pentagon’s Defense Policy Board. Like Trump, Gingrich is a staunch critic of the the U.S. nuclear deal with Iran.”
Trunp’s vice presidential short list is reportedly down to Gov. Chris Christie and Gov. Mike Pence.
