President Donald Trump struck late on Thursday night on Twitter against Paul Ryan after publishing excerpts from a pending book in which the previous House spokesman criticized him for not knowing about the government.

Shortly after CNN reported Ryan's comments on Trump in Tim Alberta's "American Carnage", which explains how Republicans changed with Trump's rise to presidency, Trump responded with a series of insults in three tweets.

"Paul Ryan, the failed vice president and former president of the House of Representatives, whose success was terrible (with the exception of my first two years as president) eventually became a longtime failure of the lame duck and left his party both as a fundraiser and as a Chairman in the lurch. "Trump said in his first tweet .

Ryan told Alberta he could not stand another two years with Trump, calling retirement a "bailout," as excerpts from the Washington Post show.

Trump also said that Mitt Romney's candidacy for the president in 2012 was doomed to failure after he selected Ryan as his comrade-in-arms. Trump continued to criticize Ryan for failing to finance a US-Mexican border wall.

"He had the majority and got it "With his bad leadership and bad timing," Trump said in his third tweet, "I never knew how to prosecute the Dems as they persecute us. Could not release him from Congress fast enough! "

Ryan did not stand for reelection in 2018, and Nancy Pelosi became the spokeswoman after the Democrats gained control of the House.

In Alberta's book, Ryan Trump also described as uneducated about the government: "I told myself I must have one" A relationship with this guy, which should help him to get his mind back in order, "Ryan told the Washington Post. "Because I tell you, he did not know anything about the government … I wanted to insult him all the time."

An expert in the book also describes how Ryan Trump wanted to excommunicate after the "accession" Hollywood band was released during the campaign.

"This is fatal," he told Reince Priebus, then chairman of the Republican National Committee "How can you get him out of the race?"
