GRETA VAN SUSTERN (HOST): Let me ask about another topic. It's no secret that your name is on the vice president short list for Donald Trump.


NEWT GINGRICH: We had a great trip to Cincinnati. We’ve always had a good friendship. I think he is a remarkable figure. He has great strengths. He has weaknesses. but on balance. He’s historic. He beat out all those other guys to be the nominee. And I think that we are at a crossroads in American history, frankly, captured in part by what happened over the last few days. We are either going to clean up Washington or Washington is going to corrupt the whole country.

SUSTERN: Is that a yes you would say yes if he asked you?

GINGRICH: I think it’d be very very hard for Callista and me not to find a way not to serve the country. 

SUSTERN: So that’s a yes? That’s a yes.

GINGRICH: If I say yes then that becomes “Gingrich admits on Greta's show.” So what the heck, why not? Alright. I'm going to all out. If Trump offers the position and is serious about it, which I think he would be after our conversations, Callista and I would feel compelled to serve the country.
