"Well, I did not want the bus bill and Paul said in the strongest language: Please do not do that, we'll get you the wall." And I said, "I hope you mean that because I do not like this bill, "Trump said in an interview with The Daily Caller on Wednesday.
" Paul said to me in the strictest way, "Please sign this and if you sign this, we'll get this wall . & # 39; What our country desperately needs: humanitarian crisis, human trafficking, drugs, you know, everything – people, criminals, gangs, well, we need the wall. "
But Trump said," And then he went to Lame Duck, "refers to Ryan's decision to retire instead of running for reelection in 201
"And once he went limp, it was only an exercise to wave to the people, and the power was gone, so I was very disappointed, I was very disappointed with Paul because the wall was needed so badly I will get the wall, "he added.
CNN has commented with Ryan's representatives on the President's statements.
Ryan was the first chairman of the House for Trump during the first two years of his tenure and worked closely with the president during this time of unified republican government.
The relationship between Trump and the Wisconsin Republican was seldom quiet. Following the release of the Access Hollywood volume in October 2016, Ryan did not hesitate to support Trump during the 2016 campaign and end relations with the future president. After Trump defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton in November 2016, Ryan embraced and worked with him on Republican Legislative Priorities.
Nonetheless, the two remained divided on several occasions. In his new book, former White House communications consultant Cliff Sims describes how Trump left a meeting with Ryan about health policy in the Oval Office. Sims said Trump left the meeting and went into an adjoining room to watch TV instead of hearing Ryan talking about political details.
Toward the end of Ryan's term, Trump publicly criticized the spokesman. When Trump claimed that he could end the enforcement action in October, Ryan objected publicly to him. This led Trump to say that Ryan "did not know anything about first birth citizenship" and should have focused more on campaigning in the Midterms 2018 than expressing his opinion.
In early November, CNN reported that Trump had also accused Ryan of not collecting enough donations and not tasting the lower chamber GOP control. A source close to the White House reported CNN's Jim Acosta on the night of the interim 2018 announcement that Trump was crazy about "everything" because of Ryan.
