Newt Gingrich: Donald Trump’s Twitter Foreign Policy Is ‘Brilliant’

“We might as well get used to it.”

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich praised the style and substance of Donald Trump’s suggestion for a new nuclear arms race, calling the president-elect’s use of Twitter to make major policy pronouncements “brilliant.”

Gingrich, an informal Trump adviser, told “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace that the longstanding U.S. policy of reducing the number of its nuclear weapons has “failed.” He claimed that it has enabled former Cold War foes China, North Korea and Russia to rebuild or expand their capacities.

“There are a number of steps (Russia is) taking to be a war-fighting capability,” Gingrich said. “We have to, candidly, overmatch that.”

He also defended Trump’s decision to announce the new nuclear weapons policy over Twitter.

“On the tweeting thing, let me just suggest if I might, we might as well get used to it,” Gingrich said. “This is who he is, it’s how he’s going to operate ― whether it’s brilliant or stupid.”

1. Gingrich is an informal adviser...

I wonder if Trump knows how disastrously Gingrich's political career progressed in the late 90's.

That's like taking boating lessons from the captain of the Titanic.
