Newt Gingrich says Donald Trump‘s presidency is at risk, and he needs to make some significant course correction in order to save it.
The former House Speaker spoke with Fox’s Bill Hemmer on America’s Newsroom, where he assessed that Trump is more politically isolated than he realizes, and the president must pay attention to how many people, including Republicans, do not approve of him.
“I think that he needs to recognize that he’s taken a good first step with bringing in General Kelly, but he needs to think about what has not worked,” said Gingrich. “You don’t get down to 35 percent approval and have people in your own party shooting at you and conclude that everything’s going fine.”
Hemmer wondered whether Trump’s current situation was out of the ordinary when compared to the president’s past controversies involving John McCain, Access Hollywood, and the Gold Star Khan family. Gingrich responded that enough people have pulled away from Trump by now that the president needs to do something to orchestrate a comeback.
“If he wants to get his agenda enacted that if he wants get things done and have a presidency that is stable, he is going to have to have a couple of serious changes,” said Gingrich “I think The Art of the Comeback, which is a fascinating book that he wrote in 1997, is a really helpful reminder and he needs to think of what hasn’t been working and what he will do that is more effective in the rest of the presidency.”
