Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich panned a fellow former speaker, Nancy Pelosi, for her eight-hour marathon reading session, calling it a "sign of weakness" staged because she can't find a solution for the nation's Dreamers.

"Eight-hour speeches is what freshmen [lawmakers] do, not what speakers do," Gingrich said of the California Democrat and House Minority Leader on Fox News' "America's Newsroom." 

"It's a sign of her weakness that she is reduced to giving an eight-hour speech because she can't find a solution."

President Donald Trump, he continued, offered amnesty to three times as many people "as [President] Barack Obama ever dreamed of," but still, Democrats can't say yes to his plan for the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals program.

"There is a point where you have to think this is a party that's incapable of agreeing to something, even when it's three times what they wanted," said Gingrich.

"I think 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."

Even if a Dreamer agreement is reached, Gingrich said he does not believe Pelosi or Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer will attend a signing ceremony at the White House.

"My prediction is the president is sincere about wanting to save the Dreamers," said Gingrich. "He is going to find a way to get to an agreement and I think there is an agreement that can be had with full funding of the border and the Dreamers in a way that would be very effective."

He added that Trump will likely extend the protection "if the Democrats are too incompetent or ideological to protect them. My prediction is Donald Trump will protect the Dreamers."
