Delavan, WI – Republican businessman Paul Nehlen again called on Ryan to step down during a Periscope video on Twitter in the wake of Reince Priebus’s firing Friday afternoon.
“Speaker Ryan, Sir — you need to step down. The White House doesn’t trust you. America doesn’t trust you. We’re done. We’ve had it. We are ready for a new Speaker. We want to see change happen. We want our country back, and you are standing in the way of the Trump Train, and you’re gonna get run over on those tracks,” Nehlen said on the Periscope video.
“We’re ready for a Jim Jordan or a Mark Meadows to step up as Speaker of the House, to partner with President Trump, and undo eight years of nightmare scenario with President Obama. That’s why we elected Donald Trump over seventeen other candidates,” said Nehlen.
“It is time for Speaker Ryan to step down. He is doing nothing but undermining President Trump. He cannot lead the House of Representatives. He’s not a leader. Why would anybody expect him to be a leader?” Nehlen asked. “He’s never demonstrated that he has leadership qualities. He’s never worked in the real world. He has absolutely no credible leadership credentials at all. None!
“When Speaker Ryan was Chairman of House Ways and Means Committee, what did we get?” Nehlen asked. “We got a huge omnibus that funded everything Obama wanted. He funded everything Obama wanted! Then [Ryan] got the Speakership, and he continued to fund everything Obama wanted. Nancy Pelosi laughed at Speaker Ryan,” he stated. “She laughed at him!”
“It’s beyond ridiculous at this point that Speaker Ryan is still Speaker of the House. [Ryan] needs to step down. He has failed in his mission to unite the GOP. He could’ve led the repeal of Obamacare. He could’ve taken Mo Brooks’ repeal bill and pushed it through,” he posited.
“Instead he pushed through this cadaver, Ryan Care 1.0, Ryan Care 2.0, Obamacare 2.0, it was an amendment to Obamacare.
