GINGRICH: “First of all, I think the opening couple days he’s going to repeal 60 or 70 percent of Obama’s legacy by simply vetoing out all of the various executive orders that Obama’s used because he couldn’t get anything through Congress. Second, Republicans will be a little surprised, I think that President-elect Trump is going to reach out to Democrats and try to form a Trump majority in the House and Senate on things like infrastructure, on health reform, to see whether or not we could break out of the gridlock of the past and I think he’ll have the active support of both the Speaker Ryan and Senate majority leader McConnell to reach out and see in the Senate -- if we could get 7 or 8 Democrats hanging out with us we’d really be in great shape."
