Congressman Paul Ryan said after the midterms that he would “never again be a Trump supporter” because of the Republican Party’s dismal performance, which Ryan attributed to Trump.
Ryan co-anchored ABC’s “This Week” on Sundays with Jonathan Karl, and the two talked about Ryan’s career as a public speaker and his bond with then-President Trump. He suggested that Republicans must cooperate with Democrats because of their small majority.
So far, [under the Trump administration], we have enacted beneficial tax cuts, deregulation, and improvements to the criminal justice system. Ryan recently said to Karl, “I’m thrilled with the judges we got on the court,” alluding to the recent selections made across the board, including on the Supreme Court. I strongly oppose Trump and will never support him in an election. Why? Why? Since I’m a loser who is fixated on winning, I doubt I’d like losing with Trump.
Paul Ryan claims that the Republican Party will lose the presidency and the Senate in 2020 if the fault lies with Trump and the Senate again in 2022. The previous orator stated that the “Trump factor” was responsible for the loss.
Exclusive! After Trump announced his third presidential candidacy, outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan vowed he would “never again” support Trump.
A broadcast of This Week (@ThisWeekABC) aired on ABC on November 20th, 2022.
Ryan has suggested that Trump swayed the votes of his supporters in the primaries, helping the campaigns of candidates he endorsed. He said a Republican voter who had previously backed Trump would “move on.”
Consequently, “I don’t think he ends up deserving the nomination in the end,” as Ryan put it. Voters in the Republican primary probably already know that this year’s crop of conservative candidates is vital. Since these voters have a competitive spirit, I believe in their ability to choose a victor.
If the Republicans choose Trump as their nominee again, is there anything we can expect from them? Karl started asking inquiries when he was unable to obtain a response. Ryan said, “We lose the White House.” He predicted the Republicans would prevail with a new candidate in 2020, not Trump.
The difficulty of having one’s party approve laws with such a slim majority was highlighted by Ryan. The remark was made in response to a query regarding the razor-thin margin of victory for the Republicans in the House.
He warned that the change would be difficult to achieve with such a slim majority. As he proceeded, Ryan said, “Republicans must collaborate with Democrats to accomplish legislation” because “there’s nothing as unifying as a genuinely razor-thin majority.”
This week, Republicans took control of the House of Representatives. Decision Desk HQ predicts a close race, with the Republicans holding 219 seats to the Democrats’ 211. Some ethnicities have yet to be called, although winning them is unlikely.
