Trump rips Paul Ryan as ‘lame duck failure’ with ‘poor leadership’

Share

In a three-tweet barrage, Trump called Ryan's leadership "atrocious", labeled him a "lame duck failure" and suggested he was thrilled when Ryan left Capitol Hill.

Mitt chose Paul I told people that's the end of that Presidential run.

Late Thursday, Trump said that Ryan, who served in the House of Representatives for nearly two decades, "quit Congress because he didn't know how to Win".

"I introduced him and they booed him off the stage", the president claimed.

But that was not all, he continued his ranting in yet another tweet where he did not fail to mention that despite having the majority, Rayan blew it off owing to his poor judgments, lack of leadership skills and timing. "Never knew how to go after the Dems like they go after us. Couldn't get him out of Congress fast enough!" he concluded.

"American Carnage" by Politico's Tim Alberta depicts a Republican Party that at first struggled with Trump's rise during the campaign before gradually coming to terms with him as President, according to a report by The Washington Post, which obtained a copy of the book. The only success Paul Ryan had was the time that he was with me because we got taxes cut.

Right, why else would Ryan say Trump knows nothing about government, other than getting bribed to do it by a Politico reporter? "Those of us around him really helped to stop him from making bad decisions. Now I think he's making some of these knee-jerk reactions". In the book, Ryan admits that his decision not to run for reelection was an "escape hatch" out of government and away from the Trump administration. "We are with you Paul!" And, truth be told, in his career in public office, Paul Ryan did at least as much damage to the country as the president* has. "Paul Ryan was a bad speaker", Trump told reporters on the South Lawn. He was unable to raise money. Trump's critics in the Republican Party are increasingly unwilling, or unable, to speak their minds publicly about the president for fear of enduring his wrath, or that of his constituents.

"All the time", said Ryan, who stepped down after almost two decades in Washington, in the book.

Trump slammed the politician from Wisconsin for not being able to secure funding for the border wall - oddly enough, Trump has not been able to convince Congress to sign a check for his billion-dollar wall. On Friday, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) came to Ryan's defense, blaming himself for the pair's loss in the 2012 presidential election to their Democrat rivals, former President Barack Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden.

But, on announcing his retirement from Washington politics past year, Trump tweeted a tribute to the outgoing congressman.
