ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich says Presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is willing to get into fights, and that could break up the corrupt system in Washington, DC. "If you want to break up the corrupt bureaucratic incestuous system in Washington, you'd better have somebody who has a very strong personality and who is very willing to be in fights," said Gingrich on CBS News' Face the Nation, Sunday (July 17). On picking Indiana Governor Mike Pence as vice presidential running mate, Gingrich said that Trump "needed somebody who could be an ambassador to the traditional republicans who's been around who are suddenly startled by this new guy in effect taken over their party." Republican Donald Trump's selection of Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate cheered the U.S. energy industry and dismayed green advocates, with both sides citing Pence's support for coal mining and defiance of President Barack Obama's climate-change agenda. Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, has called climate change a hoax and promised to gut U.S. environmental regulations in order to help the ailing oil and coal sectors. A Trump-Pence ticket will quash any expectation that the New York businessman might soften that stance heading into the Nov. 8 election.
