TRUMP NOMINATES CALISTA GINGRICH AS U.S. AMBASSADOR TO THE VATICAN

President Trump has nominated Calista Gingrich as U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican.

Mrs. Gingrich, a deeply religious Catholic, has sung professionally in the choir of the Basilica of the National Shrine in Washington, D.C. In 2009, she was responsible for converting her husband, former House Speaker, Newt Gingrich, to Catholicism.

In 2012, she told the New Yorker Magazine, that her husband’s conversion, “was one of the happiest moments of my life.”

Mr. Trump’s appointment of Mrs. Gingrich has miffed some conservative Christians since she was her husband’s mistress prior to marrying him.

Before marrying the current Mrs. Gingrich, Mr. Gingrich had both of his previous marriages annulled, something that means the children of his previous relationships are arguably illegitimate in the eyes of the Church. Following his annulments, Mr. Gingrich joined his new wife at Church with the zealousness of a new convert.
