Guess Which Gingrich Trump Plans to Add to His Cabinet

President Donald Trump will nominate Callista Gingrich as US ambassador to the Vatican, according to several reports published Sunday.

Callista Gingrich, a former congressional aide who is now an author and president of a multimedia production company, considers herself a devout Catholic.

President Donald Trump will be visiting the Vatican later this month as part of his first foreign trip.

The decision to nominate Gingrich has been made, but the announcement has taken longer than expected pending approval from the Office of Government Ethics, an administration official said.
