Newt Gingrich Issues Correction On Draining The Swamp: I MADE A BIG BOO-BOO

Newt Gingrich recently commented that Donald Trump was no longer as concerned about draining the swamp in Washington, DC. Trump didn’t agree with that at all and now Newt is clarifying.

The Washington Times reports:

Newt Gingrich: I ‘made a big boo-boo’ by saying Donald Trump is past ‘drain the swamp’

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on Thursday issued an effective public apology for suggesting earlier in the week that President-elect Donald Trump is past the phrase “drain the swamp,” a reference to stamping out Washington, D.C., corruption and influence-peddling.

“I want to report that I made a big boo-boo,” Mr. Gingrich said in a video posted to his Facebook page.

“I talked this morning with President-elect Donald Trump, and he reminded me: He likes draining the swamp,” Mr. Gingrich said. “I mischaracterized it the other day. He intends to drain the swamp.”

Trump even tweeted about this:
