NEWT GINGRICH: Well, two quick things. First, eight hour speeches is what freshmen do. It's not what speakers do. It's a sign of her weakness, that she's reduced to giving an eight-hour speech because she can't find a solution. Second, Trump just offered three times as many people as Barack Obama ever dreamed of, three times as many, and the Democrats can't say yes. I mean there's a point in where you have to think is this a party that is incapable of agreeing to something even when it's three times what they wanted? And I think [Nancy] Pelosi is part of that. The left is so desperate to fight Trump they can't even accept victory when he walks it out as a cake and says, "Here, three times as many Dreamers as you thought of," and they still can't say yes. It's an amazing moment in American history.
