Heartwarming? Newt Gingrich Gets Donald Trump To Apprentice “Very Poor” NY School Children

In a press conference held in New York City today, Donald Trump revealed former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich came up with a feel-good proposal to have the reality television personality offer apprenticeships to 10 children in “very poor” innercity school districts. “I thought it was a great idea,” Trump exclaimed. “We’re going to be picking 10 young wonderful children and make them ‘apprenti.’ We’re going to have a little fun with it and it’s going to be something that’s going to prove results.”

Gingrich was asked about his controversial comments that schools should fire unionized janitors and “pay local students to take care of the school.”

“I do not suggest children until about 14 or 15 years of age do heavy, dangerous janitorial work,” Gingrich backpedaled. “On the other hand, there are a number of things done to clean buildings that are not heavy or dangerous.”
