Newt Gingrich says Donald Trump's "Little Trump" side emerges because the GOP presidential candidate's "sensitive" personality makes him lash out "intensely, almost uncontrollably" to criticism.

"I think that's a weakness. I hope he grows out of it," the former Republican House speaker said of Trump in a conversation with the Washington Examiner's David Drucker.

Last week, Gingrich, a strong supporter of Trump, said the billionaire real estate tycoon had good and bad sides to him — "Big Trump" and "Little Trump" with the latter personality emerging all too often.

On Tuesday, Gingrich told Drucker that "Little Trump" is "very sensitive, particularly to anything which attacks his own sense of integrity or his own sense of respectability, and he reacts very intensely, almost uncontrollably, to those kinds of situations …

"There's also a part of his personality that sometimes gets involved in petty things that make no sense and I think that that's what I was talking about when I talk about there's a 'Big Trump' and a 'Little Trump.'

"The 'Big Trump' is a historic figure talking about historic ideas. The 'Little Trump' gets involved at a personality level."
