Former Speaker Newt Gingrich has a new book out, titled “Understanding Trump”. Now he’s making the rounds on the talk show circuit promoting a book that he hopes “will help people better understand that we may be at a watershed moment for our country.”

According to Gingrich, “Trump represents the third—and hopefully final—great effort to break away from a half century of big-government liberalism dating back to the administration of Lyndon B. Johnson. The first big push came in 1981 when President Ronald Reagan took office. The second was in 1994, when we signed the Contract with America.”

Appearing on ABC’s “This Week,” Gingrich attempted to explain to host Martha Raditz why Trump persisted in tweeting about the Russian investigation. “Trump has a compulsion to counterattack, and he’s very pugnacious,” Gingrich said, adding, “I don’t think it serves him well. I don’t think it helped him.”

In his book, Gingrich says this of Trump: “His approach to politics and governing can be studied as a remarkable strategy for breaking out of the Left’s intransigent power structure,” but he expressed his concern to Raditz that the man is not doing himself any favors with his use of Twitter… especially when it comes to the Russian investigation.”

“It’s who he’s been his whole life,” stated Gingrich. His book is being published by ABC.
