With Election Day just three weeks away, Donald Trump is not just turning his rhetorical fire only on Democrats and Hillary Clinton, as he keeps jabbing at House Speaker Paul Ryan, criticizing Ryan and other GOP leaders for not fully embracing Trump’s bid for the White House.
And with a Trump rally scheduled in Ryan’s home state of Wisconsin on Monday night, there may be even more tough words for the Republican Party’s leader in Congress.
“We have Paul Ryan, always fighting the Republican nominee,” Trump tweeted on Sunday, one of a series of tweets that blasted the Republican Speaker in recent days.
Trump has not only hit Ryan on social media, but also at campaign rallies.
The attacks on Ryan have not garnered support from all Republicans, like ex-House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who a few days ago labeled Trump’s criticism of Ryan, “frankly pathetic.”
Since telling fellow GOP lawmakers to run against Trump if they needed to do that in order to win re-election, Trump has lashed out repeatedly at Ryan, while the Speaker has kept quiet about the Republican nominee for President, instead emphasizing GOP agenda items.
