Ryan: ‘I Am Not Going to Defend Trump’

On a never-before-released private October conference call with House Republican members, House Speaker Paul Ryan told his members in the U.S. House of Representatives he was abandoning then-GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump forever and would never defend him ever again.

In the Oct. 10, 2016 call, from right after the Access Hollywood tape of Trump was leaked in the weeks leading up to the election, Ryan does not specify that he will never defend Trump on just the Access Hollywood tape—he says clearly he is done with Trump altogether.

“I am not going to defend Donald Trump—not now, not in the future,” Ryan says in the audio, obtained by Breitbart News and published here for the first time ever.

Now, Ryan—still the Speaker—has pushed now President Donald Trump to believe his healthcare legislation the American Health Care Act would repeal and replace Obamacare when it does not repeal Obamacare. Ryan has also, according to Trump ally Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), misled President Trump into believing that Ryan’s bill can pass Congress. Paul and others believe the bill is dead on arrival in the U.S. Senate since a number of GOP senators have come out against it, and there are serious questions about whether it can pass the House. This is the first major initiative that Trump has worked on with Ryan—and the fact it is going so poorly calls into question whether Speaker Ryan, the GOP’s failed 2012 vice presidential nominee who barely supported Trump at all in 2016, really understands how Trump won and how to win in general.

The October conference call apparently was intended only for House Republican members. It’s unclear which or how many House Republicans took part in the call, whether the participants knew it was being recorded, who made the recording, or whether a recording exists of the entire call. The remarks on the portion provided to Breitbart News certainly sound like they were coming from Speaker Ryan, who seemed to be abandoning his party’s presidential nominee altogether just weeks before the election. He says not only will he not defend the Access Hollywood comments, but he will not campaign with Trump at all between this call on Oct. 10, 2016, and the general election for the presidency on Nov. 8—and that Ryan would not defend Trump on anything generally.

  1. Time to get RID of Ryan..We do NOT need another sneaky RINO infesting our government and attempting to undermine this PRESIDENT. If he cannot be trusted to do his job and live up to his OATH OF OFFICE and support OUR COMMANDER IN CHIEF, he needs to resign IMMEDIATELY.

    1. someone needs to tell this traitor liberal scumbag,no one is going to defend him.hes all done and should have been long ago accept for the brain dead dimwitted sheeple keep putting him back in.

    2. Ryan, McConnell, McCain, Graham, Cornyn, all must go right now…How do we accomplish this…Has Trump heard what Ryan said about him. Ryan is a very big snake to this party. McConnell is Gop elite globalist traitor too…Get them out of there…Trump is president now. Lock the crook Obama up. He has done enough to land in Gitmo today. Lock up Valerie Jarrett too, the brains behind Obama.

  2. He abandoned President Trump a long time ago, with a few others. Surprised President Trump stuck with him. Ryan is better serving the Left.

  3. In my opinion, Paul Ryan is a NO GOOD SCUM BAG RAT AND NEEDS TO BE IMPEACHED FROM OFFICE. HE APPEARS TO BE AN OBSTRUCTIONIST AND CAN’T WORK TOGETHER FOR THE GOOD OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. WHAT A SCAM ARTIST!

  4. What don’t Obama, Ryan, McCain, half the GOP, and the liberal democrats understand? We want President Trump to drain the Obama swamp, to clean up the mess, to balance the budget as much as humanly possible. Donald Trump made mistakes, yet he is worth his weight in gold thus far. The Obama tactics can only ruin the economic, security, and well being of the nation in the long run. I am tired of the liberal bias attacks, Obama screwed this nation royally and no one dared question his sneaky underhanded deeds? The executive branch cover ups, destruction of evidence, the obstruction of justice by the Justice Department. Give Trump a chance, Obama lied constantly to the American people, are we that stupid to want a return to insanity.
