(AL WEAVER, WashingtonExaminer) Presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump praised former House Speaker Newt Gingrich during a rally Wednesday night, the first time the two campaigned together amid vice presidential chatter.

He also lauded him for being one of the conservatives who “gets it” and has come around to his side, unlike those still in the #NeverTrump crowd.
“I like that too. We like Newt,” Trump said as they chanted the former speaker’s name. “And I’ll tell you what, Newt has been my friend for a long time.
