Newt Gingrich In For Trump Debate – ‘Apprentice: The Presidency’

Mike Stobe/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich is ready to participate in what he calls, “Apprentice: The Presidency” with Donald Trump.

Donald Trump will moderate a debate hosted by conservative magazine Newsmax in Des Moines, Iowa on Dec. 27. Gingrich is the only candidate to officially announce his participation so far. Both Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman declined.

“How could you turn down the Donald?” Gingrich said.

Gingrich said that while he enjoys debating, for him it’s about the entertainment.

“I would want to go just for the entertainment value. I can’t imagine [what] a debate hosted by Donald Trump will be like,” Gingrich said.

Gingrich plans to meet with Trump on Monday as several other candidates have already done. Gingrich said the meeting with Trump was already planned before the announcement of the debate last week.

Gingrich said he is “perfectly happy” to go to the debate since he will already be in town.

“It’s going to be in Iowa so it makes a lot of sense because we’re going to be in Iowa by that point,” Gingrich said. “In all seriousness, Trump is a unique American character. It would be like if Bill Gates called and said I’d like to host a debate.”

Gingrich will meet with Trump on Monday in New York City.
