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.

Oops! NY Dem Accidentally Slips, Voting Bill Inspired by ‘Hugo Chavez’
Democratic Representative Hakeem Jeffries says in his speech that the infamous elections takeover bill is “inspired by Hugo Chavez.” He quickly said Cesar Chavez, but not before social media had the chance to blast him for the slip.
The Democrats' election takeover bill being inspired by Hugo Chavez is a classic Washington "gaffe"—accidentally telling the truth. https://t.co/Pn1rdcgHll
— Tom Cotton (@TomCottonAR) January 19, 2022
Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas quickly tweeted the video with the caption: “The Democrats; election takeover bill being inspired by Hugo Chavez is a classic Washington ‘gaffe’-accidentally telling the truth.”
New York Democrat Jeffries had previously said the voting rights bills must pass “by any means necessary” and supported “reforming a filibuster rule that is dripping in racist history.” Even President Biden admitted “I hope we can get this done. The honest-to-God answer is I don’t know whether we can get this done.”
On Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wrote, “we cannot and we will not rest until this legislation is enacted into law” after the House passed a bill Thursday morning that combined the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and the Freedom to Vote Act, which now has virtually zero chance of surviving the Senate.
