Gingrich: Trump doesn't want to 'drain the swamp' anymore

Former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) said in a new interview that Donald Trump has taken a different tone as president-elect and may be leaving behind his campaign promise to “drain the swamp.”

Gingrich told NPR's "Morning Edition" that he was told Trump “now says [Insert] was cute, but he doesn’t want to use it anymore.”

Gingrich, who has been a close adviser to Trump, said he likes "drain the swamp" because it “vividly illustrates the problem because all people in this city who are the alligators are going to hate the swamp being drained.”

“But, you know, he is my leader, and if he decides to drop the swamp and the alligator I will drop the swamp and the alligator,” he said.

He did drain the swamp by beating Hillary.
I'm sorry, but how did that work since Clinton wasn't in government at the time she campaigned? And Trump done? Filled his cabinet with the wealthy and self serving.

Get ready for a new batch of filth in the swamp.

Goldman Sachs’s outsize influence in Washington is about to get larger.

The longtime second-in-command at Goldman Sachs, Gary D. Cohn, is expected to be named director of the National Economic Council, which oversees economic policy in the White House.

Coming fast on the heels of the nomination of Steven Mnuchin, a former Goldman partner, as Treasury secretary, it will mean that economic policy under the president-elect, Donald J. Trump, will be shaped chiefly by veterans of the Wall Street firm.

The position that Mr. Cohn is expected to take up is one that has long been identified with Goldman and its influence in the capital.

The role was established by President Bill Clinton and given to Goldman’s co-chairman at the time, Robert E. Rubin. Mr. Rubin’s co-chairman, Stephen Friedman, later held the position under President George W. Bush.

Succession Questions Rise at Goldman Sachs DEC. 1, 2016
This time, however, the selection of a Goldman insider is at odds with statements made by Mr. Trump during the presidential campaign. He repeatedly attacked the financial elite — and Goldman Sachs in particular.

In a commercial that ran in the closing days of the campaign, Mr. Trump warned about “a global power structure that is responsible for the economic decisions that have robbed our working class, stripped our country of its wealth and put that money into the pockets of a handful of large corporations and political entities.” The face of Goldman’s chief executive, Lloyd C. Blankfein — Mr. Cohn’s longtime friend and collaborator — was among the images that flashed ominously on the screen.

And Mr. Trump criticized both Hillary Clinton and a primary opponent, Senator Ted Cruz, Republican of Texas, over their ties to the investment bank. “I know the guys at Goldman Sachs,” Mr. Trump said at one primary debate. “They have total, total control” over Mr. Cruz, he said. “Just like they have total control over Hillary Clinton.”

Since his election, however, Mr. Trump has stocked his future cabinet with a number of Goldman alumni, including Mr. Mnuchin, a hedge fund manager and a former Goldman trader, and Stephen K. Bannon, a former Goldman banker who is now Mr. Trump’s chief strategist.
