Newt Gingrich fears Trump administration will 'lose their nerve'

Newt Gingrich has revealed his major concern about the incoming administration.

On Sunday, when asked about his greatest fear regarding Trump's presidency, the former House speaker stated, "That they will lose their nerve."

The comment was made during an interview with ABC News' Jonathan Karl who also had Donna Brazile, the interim Democratic National Committee chairwoman, as a guest.

Gingrich went on to say, "Look, they're going to arrive in Washington, and for them to be successful they have to stake out positions that Donna will not like and the left will hate."

He then added, "And my deepest concern is that they're going to arrive, and you're gonna have the greens going crazy over the EPA and Interior, you're gonna have the government employee unions going crazy about civil service reform. You're going to have the teachers union going crazy over school choice. And these are pretty non-negotiable. I mean, if you're serious about school choice, there is no agreement with the teachers union."

He continued by saying, "I'm worried that when they realize how big the problem is, that they decide that they're just going to do the best they can and give in."

Gingrich has consistently voiced support for Donald Trump, including when many criticized the president-elect's tweet on the need to expand country's nuclear capability.

Addressing the issue during an interview on December 25 with Chris Wallace of Fox News, Gingrich noted, "I think for the next president to say, 'You know, we are going to have to systematically rebuild our nuclear capability,' is exactly right."
