Doubt has been cast whether Trump will continue to "drain the swamp." Newt Gingrich is said the president has shifted and Trump is done draining the swamp.

While the election was going on, Trump used the phrase "drain the swamp" over and over. Gingrich claims that a shift has been made. Don't forget, Gingrich worked as a Trump surrogate and is still an adviser to him.

Per the Daily Caller:

“I’m told he now just disclaims that,” he told NPR Tuesday. “He now says it was cute, but he doesn’t want to use it anymore … I’d written what I thought was a very cute tweet about ‘the alligators are complaining,’ and somebody wrote back and said they were tired of hearing this stuff.”

“I’ve noticed on a couple of fronts, like people chanting ‘lock her up,’ that he’s in a different role now and maybe he feels that as president, as the next president of the United States, that he should be marginally more dignified than talking about alligators in swamps,” he continued. “I personally have, as a sense of humor, like the alligator and swamp language.

Trump is Done Draining the Swamp

This will make Trump supporters and Never Trumpers unhappy, alike. What do you think about the transition by Trump? Did he break a promise he made during his campaign or was this just a misunderstanding pushed by the media?
