Newt Gingrich isn’t even trying very hard in this interview with Fox’ n ‘Trump’s Friends to sell the deal that Trump made with Pelosi and Schumer. He just kinda calls it smart and moves on.
And yet in November, Newty was saying Schumer was just a tough a fighter as Harry Reid, but more subtle:
Schumer made clear with Chris Wallace that he will be a tough partisan and fight change every inch of the way.He is a more subtle Harry Reid

So, it was very smart for Trump to give a tough partisan fighter what he wants? Okie dokie then.
