With Republicans like Paul Ryan who needs Democrats?
U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan on Tuesday sharply criticized Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s Twitter post depicting Democratic rival Hillary Clinton against a backdrop of cash and a Star of David, saying anti-Semitic images have “no place in a presidential campaign.”
“Candidates should know that,” Ryan, the highest-ranking elected Republican, said in an interview with radio station WTMJ in Milwaukee, two days before Trump was due to meet House and Senate Republicans in Washington.
“I really believe he’s got to clean up the way his new media works,” he said, in a reference to Trump’s social media efforts. The presumptive Republican nominee has frequently used Twitter to skewer his opponents and push his proposals.
The radio station posted audio from the interview on its website, and the Wisconsin congressman’s office provided a transcript of the session.
Ryan’s comments came a day after Trump defended the tweet, saying he had not meant the six-pointed star to refer to the Star of David, which is a symbol of Judaism.
Come on people… I saw the tweet like everyone else and didn’t even think about the star being the STAR OF DAVID until all the media hype. Give me a break! I am way past thinking the Democrat and Republican parties are in partnership against the American people.
They excluded themselves from most laws we the people are required to abide.
Ryan has become as irrelevant as Boehner. Who cares what he thinks about Trump? He appears to be in Hillary’s pant-suit pocket!
I am so sick of Ryan and the rest of the Republicans. They should all register as a Democrat, the party they ALWAYS surrender to. It’s like the insiders are so afraid of a president not owned by their contributors, that they’d rather see a criminal in the White House than Trump.
