Donald Trump thinks he knows what cost Mitt Romney the White House, and it was none other than his running mate, Congressman Paul Ryan!

During a town hall meeting in Bluffton, S.C. Trump explained ““That was the end of that campaign, when they chose Ryan…That was the end of the campaign. I said, ‘You gotta be kidding.”

From The New York Times:

When Mr. Ryan was selected as Mr. Romney’s running mate, Democrats made an issue of Mr. Ryan’s proposal, made months earlier, to cut Medicare.

“The only one that’s not cutting is me,” Mr. Trump said, pointing to the fact that he and Mike Huckabee were the only Republican presidential candidates who did not call for reforming Social Security and Medicare. Mr. Huckabee recently pulled out of the race.

Do you agree with Trump’s assessment that Ryan is to blame for Romney’s 2012 loss to Obama? Share your thoughts below!
