There have always been RINOs in the Republican party. But especially after Donald Trump got nominated for president, they all wished to have him gone. Now, with Mr. Trump in the oval office, those RINOs are doing everything they cane in order to oppose and stop ou President trump from sticking to his agenda.
Some of them think they have nothing to lose. But, for Speaking Paul Ryan, opposing our President might get him to lose his job.
Paul Nehlen, a Republican businessman from Wisconsin’s first congressional district, has just launched his 2018 congressional campaign against the anti-Donald Trump House Speaker Paul Ryan.
This is the second time Nehlen is challenging Ryan, after coming up short in the 2016 GOP primary in Wisconsin’s first congressional district.
“Speaker Ryan did not help Mr. Trump defeated Hillary Clinton, and even pledged not to defend the president, “Nehlen said in his announcement. “But I have a message for Speaker Ryan: The American people are not done fighting for President Trump’s good agenda. That’s why I announce my second challenge to Paul Ryan for the nomination in Wisconsin’s first congressional district. “
Nehlen’s comment refers to the audio unearthed by Breitbart News of Ryan during a conference call with House GOP members in which he not only abandoned now-President Donald Trump during the most crucial month of October of the 2016 presidential campaign but pledged never to defend the president again .
“I’m not going to defend Donald Trump-not now, not in the future,” Ryan said in the audio of a conference call with House GOP colleagues, which came after the Access Hollywood tape of Trump emerged. Ryan’s comments were notable because he did not say he specifically would not defend Trump on the Access Hollywood tape. His comments meant he would not defend the man who is now president of the United States on anything.
Ryan refused to campaign with President Trump at all until the end of the campaign, but appeared with now-Vice President Mike Pence.
At the time, Ryan spokesman Brendan Buck said things have changed since Trump won the election.
“The world is well aware of this history,” Buck said of the audio tape of Ryan throwing Trump under the bus.
“And obviously a lot has happened since then. As everyone knows, Buck also said, adding in a third comment that they were “of course they were” when asked if these comments were specifically about Access Hollywood tapes, even though Ryan did not qualify his abandonment of Trump in the conference call.
“This was in response to that, but as everyone knows, they came together towards the end of the campaign and the Speaker vocally supported him and even campaigned with Pence,” Buck said.
