Trump always gets the last word. After former House Speaker and failed vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan attacked former president Trump in a speech he issued an epic response to the RINO. During a speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, Ryan lamented the current state of the Republican Party and criticized Trump continued influence on the GOP.
Trump released a statement in regard to Ryan’s remarks, “Ronald Reagan would not be happy to see that the Reagan Library is run by the head of the Washington Post, Fred Ryan. How the hell did that happen? No wonder they consistently have RINO speakers like Karl Rove and Paul Ryan. They do nothing for our forward-surging Republican Party!”
Paul Ryan was longtime Trump adversary Mitt Romney’s running mate in 2012.
Former President Trump released a second statement further attacking Ryan on Friday morning:
“RINO Paul Ryan, who became a lame duck Speaker of the House, lost all vote-getting capability with the people he represented in Wisconsin, and was the single biggest factor, other than Romney himself, for the monumental Romney/Ryan loss in the Presidential race of 2012 (I got more votes by far, 75M, than any sitting president in history!), and he is now speaking to other Republicans telling them how to win elections. Interestingly, I was in the Great State of Wisconsin when they booed him off the podium—I literally had to come to his rescue.
Ryan should instead be telling them how to stop the cheating of elections and that we would have won if Republican leadership fought the way the Democrats did.
It was the day that Ryan went on the board of Fox (Fox will never be the same!) that Fox totally lost its way and became a much different place, with millions of its greatest supporters fleeing for good. Paul Ryan has been a curse to the Republican Party. He has no clue as to what needs to be done for our Country, was a weak and ineffective leader, and spends all of his time fighting Republicans as opposed to Democrats who are destroying our Country.
As a Republican, having Paul Ryan on your side almost guarantees a loss, for both you, the Party, and America itself!”
