Newt Gingrich: Absurd for Trump to Put His Holdings in a Blind Trust
GINGRICH: "This is a country that wants accountability. Now, again, he is unique and I totally defend him against those who, for example, want him to put his holdings in a blind trust, which is an absurdity."
MARTIN: "Why is that absurd?"
GINGRICH: "A large part of his holdings are Trump golf clubs, Trump hotels. I mean, we have never quite had anyone of this scale to occupy the White House, and it’s going to require us to think about how do you deal with this in a way that’s effective and that serves the interest of the country, but also meets some kind of practical common sense test."
