Speaker of the House Paul Ryan can’t vacate seat in Washington DC fast enough for supporters of President Trump and his agenda.
Very few members of Congress have been willing to stand up and defend President Trump’s agenda, especially when it comes to his number one priorty— to build a wall on our southern border. House Freedom Caucus member Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) just revealed a key reason why Republicans have been unwilling to stand behind President Trump, and sadly, it has to do with the outgoing leader of the House, Republican Speaker Paul Ryan.
Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas revealed Wednesday that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan advised GOP House members to run on a platform against President Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election.
“Just a few weeks before the election, we were told by Paul, by our elected leaders that, gee, the only way we can keep the House majority is just all of us start running against the president,” Gohmert told guest host Derek Hunter during an interview on WMAL. “Fortunately, we had enough people one after another on the call that pushed back so hard they backed off of that.”
Gohmert explained that Trump is still getting used to the dichotomy between the public and private sector, especially when it comes to handling members who claim to support him politically, yet refuse to further his agenda.
“He wants to work with people over here on the Hill, and he’s just not used to, in the private sector, having people that are reputedly on his side conspiring to keep him from getting what he promised,” said Gohmert. “And that’s what we’ve seen.” –Daily Caller
