Interesting how Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan only has about five weeks left in his current position, but he still continues to contradict everything President Donald Trump stands for. He’s certainly “going out swinging” against the Trump administration.
In fact, Speaker Paul Ryan took the time out of his extremely busy schedule to speak with ultra-liberal news outlet, the Washington Post in order to slam the President once again.
It was reported by the Gateway Pundit that “Ryan once again contradicted the Republican President and told the WaPo he has no interest in shutting down the government for the border wall.”
The House Speaker also contradicted the President when it came down to the issues of trade, the Federal government, and the current “focus” of the Republican Party.
Then Ryan took it a step further and actually bragged that Congress ran on his “Better Way” agenda. Clearly this is why the GOP lost during the midterms.
Take a look at the video from Lou Dobbs Tonight:
The Washington Examiner reported:
Outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., expressed doubt Thursday that disagreement about border wall funding is worth a government shutdown.
“We don’t want to have a shutdown, I have no interest in doing that. That makes no sense,” Ryan said during an interview with the Washington Post Live.
President Trump has threatened to shut down the government if Congress does not fully fund his $5 billion border wall between the United States and Mexico.
So far, a plan making headway in Congress would appropriate $1.6 billion for the project.
Speaker Ryan stated that he agrees with Trump and his fellow Republicans when it comes down to a “hardline outlook on immigration,” and he acknowledged that we must work on our country’s border security. He did claim, however that this should have nothing to do with the way the federal government operates.
“This used to be a bipartisan issue,” Ryan stated. “It has all of a sudden become partisan for ridiculous reasons in my opinion. It should be bipartisan, securing our border. “
