Paul Ryan, the former RINO Speaker of the House, is not a fan of Donald Trump. Ryan is one of many establishment insiders attempting to reclaim control of the Republican Party from Trump and his grassroots followers.
And Paul Ryan just played this dirty trick on Donald Trump.
Former Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) serves on the board of directors of Fox Corporation, the parent corporation of Fox News.
Ryan has no qualms about using his position to steer Republicans away from former President Donald Trump.
He supported the idea that Donald Trump cannot win the presidency in 2024 in an interview with Fox Business’s Stuart Varney.
Ryan argued that swing voters in the United States, who now live in the suburbs, despise Trump and would never vote for him (again).
“That new swing voter in American politics is the suburban voter, and it’s really clear the suburban voter doesn’t like Trump, but they like Republicans,” Ryan stated. “So I think anybody not named Trump I think is so much more likely to win the White House for us.”
Ryan predicted that a Republican Presidential Primary in 2024 would be similar to previous Democrat primaries, in which the base first supported an ideological candidate who could not win before settling on the establishment elites’ more “electable” option.
“It’s sort of like what the Democrats did,” Ryan claimed. “They went from Dean and John Kerry in ’04, they went from Bernie and Hillary in ’16, they went from Bernie and Elizabeth Warren to Joe Biden to win in 2020. I think the same thing will be for us.”
“We’ll want to win the White House so badly and beat the Democrats, and we know we’re so much more likely to lose with Trump because of the fact that he is not popular with suburban voters that we’ll want to win,” he continued.
“We all know he’s so much more likely to lose the White House than anybody else running for President on our side of the aisle, so why would we want to go with that?”
Of course, Ryan’s reasoning has a serious weakness.
Donald Trump already won the presidency in 2016 and is expected to garner even more votes in 2020.
According to the Real Clear Politics polling average, Trump now leads Joe Biden by 0.2%.
Outside of the establishment elites asserting it, there is absolutely no proof that Trump cannot win in 2024.
But establishment elites, such as Paul Ryan, actually want to retake control of the Republican Party in order to fight for amnesty for illegal immigrants, globalist trade deals, and perpetual foreign wars.
As a result, Paul Ryan and his elitist cohorts are attempting to mislead Republican voters about Donald Trump’s supposed “electability” in 2024.
