The GOP has long said it wants to have a bigger tent, but with Donald Trump bringing in new voters to the party, many of those same people are terrified, says former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

"Those are the people, whether they're at The Weekly Standard, whether they're on talk radio, whether they run a blog, whether they're so-called experts, those are the people who are terrified of Donald Trump because he represents a new world," Gingrich said Wednesday on Fox News Channel's "Hannity."

Gingrich compared the situation to asking someone who operates an old-fashioned small retail place if they've ever heard of Walmart.

"What you see coming down the road here is a much bigger party with many more people," he said.

Gingrich said he believes House Speaker Paul Ryan, with whom Trump is scheduled to meet on Thursday, recognizes this, and that his statement on Wednesday that he is open to diverse views in the party is real, not a political game.

"They've got to get to know each other. They got to spend time talking to each other," Gingrich said of the two.
