Sad… GOP Lawmakers UNANIMOUSLY Re-Elect Trump-Basher Paul Ryan as Speaker
Paul Ryan spoke out against Republican nominee Donald Trump ALL YEAR.
Ryan announced in October he was pulling his endorsement of Donald Trump.
He held a separate press conference to tell reporters he would not campaign with Donald Trump.
Paul Ryan cannot be trusted.
He is loyal to the elites and not the people.
Paul Ryan is pro-amnesty, big government, pro-TPP and anti-American worker.
Donald Trump won an historic election on Tuesday winning 306 electoral votes.
But Republican lawmakers do not respect their base.
They voted today to reinstate Paul Ryan as speaker.
Republican lawmakers today unanimously re-elected Paul Ryan as Speaker.
NBC News reported:
House Republicans have unanimously re-elected Paul Ryan to be speaker of the House.
Ryan’s re-election to the top post was being contested as recently as ten days ago, but after Donald Trump won the presidency, Republicans have united behind him.
Rep. Chris Collins of New York, who was the first House member to back Trump for president, gave one of the nominating speeches on Ryan’s behalf in the closed-door session of Republican members Tuesday afternoon.
Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan were not particularly close during the election. But Trump’s victory has helped to save Ryan’s job.
Just before Election Day, members openly questioned Ryan’s effectiveness in the role of speaker, but they emerged from a meeting Monday supporting the Wisconsin Republican, saying he would face no challengers for the post.
