Donald Trump congratulated former House Speaker Newt Gingrich Wednesday for his much-hyped televised clash with Fox News host Megyn Kelly the previous evening, expressing his solidarity in the notion that the two men “don’t play games.”

Mr. Gingrich accused Mrs. Kelly of being “fascinated with sex” and not caring about public policy after the she questioned him about the allegations of sexual misconduct that have been leveled against Mr. Trump since the release of a 2005 tape in which the New York businessman brags about groping women.

“By the way congratulations Newt on last night,” Mr. Trump said at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for his new luxury hotel in Washington, D.C. “That was an amazing interview. … We don’t play games, Newt, right? We don’t play games.”

Mr. Gingrich opined on Mrs. Kelly’s sexual thoughts after growing frustrated with her questions, accusing her of being bias against Mr. Trump, and challenging her to label former President Bill Clinton as a sexual predator.

“You are fascinated with sex, and you don’t care about public policy,” Mr. Gingrich said.

Mrs. Kelly rolled her eyes at Mr. Gingrich’s charge and said her show has reported on Mr. Clinton’s past.

“But he is not on the ticket, and the polls also show that the American public is less interested in the deeds of Hillary Clinton’s husband than they are in the deeds of the man who asks us to make him president, Donald Trump,” she said. “We are going to have to leave it at that, and you can take your anger issues and spend some time working on them.”

Mr. Gingrich responded, “And you, too.”
