Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has said that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is trying to ruin his chances of winning the presidency this November.
Trump believes that Ryan is attempting to limit his chances of winning in 2016, because Ryan wants to run for president in 2020.
This revelation came from Trump during an interview on Good Morning America on Tuesday. Trump was asked whether he believed that Speaker Ryan was rooting for him to win.
In response, Trump said the following:
“Well, maybe not, because maybe he wants to run in four years or maybe he doesn’t know how to win. I mean, who can really know. But I know I’m in his territory and they are all screaming for Trump.”
Support In Name Alone
Though Ryan still has to support Trump, as he is the candidate of Ryan’s party, he announced last week that he could no longer defend Trump. This came hours after a recording of Trump surfaced in which he said that his fame allowed him to sexually assault women.
As a result of Ryan’s rescinding support, Trump has taken to Twitter to hurl abuse at the speaker. Many of Trump’s fans have also turned against Ryan.
Ryan vs. Trump
Trump supporters have taken to Twitter in an attempt to educate the masses on why no one should ever listen to Ryan (or vote for him over Trump…?).
It would appear that these individuals are not all in-the-know about why they are angry, or how to spell.
