Newt Gingrich: Trump Is a 'Gifted Amateur'

After criticizing Donald Trump just days ago, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is now labeling the presumptive Republican nominee a "gifted amateur."

In an interview with CNN, Gingrich said Trump has made "the kinds of mistakes absolute amateurs make," but that he is also "learning very, very fast"

His comments came just days after he slammed Trump's remarks about U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel as "inexcusable." Curiel, who is of Mexican heritage, is overseeing the Trump University case.

CNN added: "Gingrich has referred to Trump's comments about Curiel as one of the candidate's 'worst mistakes,'" But it noted Gingrich does not believe that Trump's comments were racist.

I had higher hopes for Newt.Like Orwell and Trump I thought he had a clear vision of a better future.The smartest man in the room has a glaring weakness that excludes him from being a viable VP candidate.

Newt's correct. Here's hoping that Trump can overcome his missteps, and take out Hillary.
