Paul Ryan is Defending Congressional Republicans Threatened by Donald Trump

When Donald Trump was first elected President, Paul Ryan was the Speaker of the House. It was clear from early on that the two men were not going to have a positive working relationship. Ryan chose to retire from the House of Representatives in January of 2019.

And since the former Wisconsin Rep. has been out of office, he has regularly supported those lawmakers who are willing to speak out against Trumpism. The latest is South Carolina Congressman Tom Rice, who voted to impeach Trump in January of 2020.

While campaigning for Rice, Ryan explained, “There were a lot of people who wanted to vote like Tom but who just didn’t have the guts to do it. There are a lot of people who say they’re going to vote their conscience, they’re going to vote for the Constitution, they’re going to vote for their convictions but when it gets hard to do that they don’t do it.”

Ryan continued:

“This is just such a crystal clear case where you have a hard-working, effective, senior member of Congress who deserves reelection vs. people who are just trying to be celebrities who may be trying to help Trump with his vengeance. That’s not who voters want, voters want people focused on their solutions not on Trump’s vengeance and that to me is a really clear cut case here.”
