Gingrich meets Trump, defends child labor comments

NEW YORK - Newt Gingrich paid a visit to Donald Trump on Monday, becoming the latest Republican presidential hopeful to seek the endorsement of the real estate mogul and reality television star.

After an hour-long meeting at Trump's Fifth Avenue office in Manhattan, Gingrich defended Trump's offer to moderate a Republican presidential debate later this month, saying the "great showman" would add a dose of humor to it.

"I want his endorsement," Gingrich told a news conference, though Trump said that he would not make any endorsement until after the Dec. 27 debate.
