Donald Trump to Endorse Newt Gingrich: VIDEO

The circus is back in town:

Trump_newtWord started leaking out in Las Vegas earlier that Donald Trump's "major announcement" is to back Newt Gingrich, and sources are confirming it to POLITICO.

The announcement is expected to come at an 12:30 p.m. press conference tomorrow that The Donald is holding. The move is a bit unexpected since Trump had talked even within the past few days about how he may be compelled to run a third-party campaign of his own if he didn't see a Republican candidate who he thought could beat President Barack Obama.

The NYT: "Donald Trump will announce his support of Mr. Gingrich on Thursday in Las Vegas, according to a senior campaign official. That nod may mitigate the early impression of disarray in the Gingrich campaign in Nevada, evident as he hit the ground after a daunting defeat in the Florida primary and immediately became embroiled in a dust-up over a canceled meeting with Nevada’s governor."

Gingrich met with Trump in early December, before the Trump-moderated debate that never materialized.

Watch their press conference after that meeting, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. And this is somehow supposed to help Newt? Good luck with that one, Donald. Newt already has the homophobic, racist, hypocrite, whack-job vote shored up.

  3. Wow, so a jerk is endorsing another jerk? I'm sure that this will turn the tables. After all, the GOP has a *great* chance of winning this year. Oh, and that's a lie.

  7. Nobody gives a darn who Trump endorses. He's just another attention whore in the Republican cesspool.

  12. Romney should drop out of the race now. He doesn't have a chance of winning with Trump on Newts side. Donald and Donald alone knows how important his endorsement is!!!
