‘Curse to the Republican party’: Trump responds to criticism from Paul Ryan

Former President Trump put out a statement Friday in response to former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan‘s speech Thursday night. In the statement, Trump accused Ryan of being a Republican in name only.

Trump scoffed Ryan’s advice for conservatives to win elections, saying he “was the single biggest fact, other than Romney himself, for the monumental Romney/Ryan loss in the Presidential race of 2012.” Meanwhile, “I got more votes by far,” Trump wrote, “75M than any other sitting president in history!”

“Interestingly, I was in the Great State of Wisconsin when they booed him off the stage,” Trump went on. “I literally had to come to his rescue.”

Yesterday, Ryan tried to lead the GOP away from “populist appeal of one personality” or else “we’re not going anywhere.” But Trump disagreed. “Ryan should instead be telling them how to stop the cheating of elections and that we would have won if Republican leadership fought the way the Democrats did.”

Now, “Ryan has been a curse to the Republican party,” Trump said. He even went as far to say that Ryan’s involvement on the board of Fox News has lead to “millions of its great supporters fleeing for good.”

Finally, Trump echoed Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL). “As a Republican, having Ryan on your side almost guarantees a loss for both you, the Party, and America itself!” Trump said.

Michigan is asking its residents to help with the mess its leadership created and house migrants in their own homes. The state Department of Labor and Economic Development said volunteers who participate must commit for at least 90 days as part of the refugee support program.

In addition to opening up their homes, sponsors are expected to support newly arrived refugees by greeting them at the airport, securing and preparing initial housing, enrolling children in school and helping adults find employment.

“Programs like the Welcome Corps advance the Office of Global Michigan’s mission to make Michigan the home for opportunity for our immigrant, refugee and ethnic communities,” said Poppy Hernandez, Global Michigan Director and Michigan’s Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer. “Expanded refugee resettlement pathways empower more Michiganders to support our state’s growing refugee population and build a more welcoming and inclusive Michigan for all.”

The migrants will come from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela, all points of origin where many have been hoping to apply for asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Fox News reports “cities like New York and Chicago have also dealt with issues related to migrants committing crimes, as well as pushback from residents who have voiced anger and concern over the influx. Migrant shelters in those cities have largely been full, forcing officials to come up with ways to safely house the migrants.”

Last year, Massachusetts officials asked residents to open their doors as migrant shelters were full at the time. “Most importantly, if you have an extra room or suite in your home, please consider hosting a family. Housing and shelter is our most pressing need and become a sponsor family,” said Massachusetts Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll.
