On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will make his choice for a vice president running mate about “two days before Cleveland,” at the RNC convention.
Partial transcript as follows:
WALLACE: All right. Anyway, finally, every time you are here we play the running mate game. You always say, “I’m better than that, and no, I’m not.” Here is my question this time.
GINGRICH: You even preempted my comment.
WALLACE: Here is my question this time. Are you being vetted? Have —
WALLACE: You have not submitted any information —
GINGRICH: No. Nobody has called me. Nobody said, would you like to be? Nobody said, would you be willing to be considered? Nobody said anything.
WALLACE: Well, given the fact we’re three weeks away, what does that say to you?
GINGRICH: He’s probably going to start thinking about it two days before Cleveland.
WALLACE: Are you serious?
GINGRICH: Yes. I think Donald Trump does not want to make a decision until the convention. I think that he is a very decisive person. In case of a few of us — I’m an example — there’s not much vetting to do. I mean, you guys have been all over me for a decade.
WALLACE: The good, the bad and the ugly, right?
GINGRICH: Exactly right. It’s all out. All you’re going to do is Google.
