Gingrich fears Trump administration might lose its nerve

Former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) said Sunday that he fears the incoming Trump administration will lose its nerve after the president-elect enters the White House.

“That they will lose their nerve,” Gingrich told ABC’s “This Week” when asked what he fears most about the Trump administration.

“I mean, they’re going to arrive in Washington and for them to be successful they have to stake out positions that Donald will not like and the left will hate.”
