Trump Lashes Out Against Paul Ryan. Here's Why

WASHINGTON DC- DECEMBER 20 Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and House Majority Leader Kevin Mc Carthy talk to journalists after meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump at the White House

In person and on Twitter, Trump has responded.

The president's ongoing anger with the retired congressman follows Tim Alberta's new book American Carnage: On the Front Lines of the Republican Civil War and the Rise of President Trump featuring a number of disparaging quotes about Trump from Ryan.

Trump's repeated attacks against Ryan this week came after the publication of book excerpts on Wednesday detailing the former speaker's negative views of Trump during the 2016 campaign and his first two years as president.

In response, the president tweet-blasted Ryan over his past leadership and vice-presidential run on the failed 2012 Mitt Romney ticket. "Not in government, but where we live our lives, we have a responsibility to try and rebuild". Don't cheat on anything. Be a good person. "Set a good example", the former speaker said.

If Gardner didn't understand the trap that he has stepped into - and I'm guessing he has understood it for quite a while - he would have to know by now.

"I wanted to scold him all the time", he added.

Right, why else would Ryan say Trump knows nothing about government, other than getting bribed to do it by a Politico reporter? All the time", Ryan reported to Alberta, "we helped him make much better decisions, which contrasted with his kneecap reaction. "Now I think he's making some of these knee-jerk reactions", he said.

Amber Rudd said she has "accepted" the possibility of a no-deal Brexit, despite having previously fiercely opposed it. Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt appeared at the Conservative Party hustings in Wyboston, Cambridgeshire on Saturday.

He claimed on the White House lawn as he left for Ryan's home state of Wisconsin that the ex-legislator was a "no talent" hack and a "lame duck" speaker who shouldn't have lost control of the lower chamber in the last election.

Mr Trump said: "Paul Ryan let us down".

The president roasted former House Speaker Paul Ryan in a trio of tweets, calling his record "atrocious,".

Ryan told Alberta that Trump knew nothing about how government works when he became president in 2017. "They gave me standing O's in the Great State of Wisconsin, & booed him off the stage", Trump wrote. "He promised me the Wall, & failed (happening anyway!)".

But that was not all, he continued his ranting in yet another tweet where he did not fail to mention that despite having the majority, Rayan blew it off owing to his poor judgments, lack of leadership skills and timing. "Never knew how to go after the Dems like they go after us".

Romney, a frequent Trump critic, praised Ryan on Friday as a "tireless fighter, fundraiser and conservative champion".
