Fox News and Newt Gingrich part ways fueling speculation he will be Donald Trump’s running mate
According to this story Fox News and Newt Gingrich are parting ways due to a potential conflict of interest. The last time these two parted ways it was because the former Speaker of the House was running for President. This has naturally fueled speculation that Newt Gingrich is going to be Donald Trump’s running mate. Here is more:
Fox News announced it would be cutting ties with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich due to potential conflicts of interest, as presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump is expected to name his choice of running mate soon. The move has fueled speculation that Gingrich might be The Donald’s VP pick.
“Fox News Channel has mutually agreed to suspend its contributor agreement with Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich effective immediately,” the channel’s Executive Vice President Jay Wallace said in a statement Tuesday. “Due to the intense media speculation about Gingrich’s potential selection as Donald Trump’s vice presidential candidate, we felt it best to halt his contributor role on the network to avoid all conflicts of interest that may arise.”
The Donald has mentioned four potential candidates including Gingrich. The others are Indiana Governor Mike Pence, Lt. General Michael Flynn, and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

Commentators have already interpreted the Fox News decision as evidence that Gingrich is Trump’s choice for VP, noting that Fox also suspended its relationship with Newt before his presidential run in 2012.
This comes after days of speculation that Mike Pence would be the choice of the billionaire businessman, with one report saying it was 95% certain and the announcement could come as early as tonight.
Personally I do not like Newt Gingrich as a choice because I believe he is a big government establishment politician and I also believe when it comes to his personal life and his supposed morals that he is a hypocrite, although Donald Trump does need to name somebody with some experience in my opinion…
The rumors are heating up but this seems to be a pretty legitimate sign of what is to come but who knows, there could be other reasons why Fox News and Newt Gingrich decided to part ways–we will just have to wait and see.
