Trump continued to bash former House Speaker Paul Ryan today after he brutally attacked him on Twitter yesterday.
Speaking with reporters in front of the White House, President Trump ripped the former Speaker of the House for not using subpoena power to attack the Democrats.
“So Paul Ryan was not a talent. He wasn’t a leader,” Trump said. “When the people, the great congressmen wanted to go after the Dems for things that they did very badly, he wouldn’t give subpoenas. Whereas Nancy Pelosi hands them out like they’re cookies.“
Trump also accused him of being a “lame duck” in his role as a House Speaker.
“Paul Ryan was a lame duck for a long time as speaker,” Trump said. “He lost control of the house. The only success Paul Ryan had was the time that he was with me, because we got taxes cut. I got regulation cuts. I did that mostly without him.”
“But for Paul Ryan to be complaining is pretty amazing. I remember a day in Wisconsin, the state that I won, where I stood up and made a speech and then I introduced him and they booed him off the stage,” Trump told reporters.
