Paul Ryan: Donald Trump ‘Just Earned a Mandate’ [VIDEO]

Donald Trump Paul Ryan

At a press conference on Wednesday, Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan congratulated President-elect Donald Trump “on his great victory” and called the win “the most incredible feat” that he has seen in his lifetime.

Speaking in Janesville, Wisconsin during a press conference, Ryan told reporters that seven out of 10 Americans believe the country is on the wrong track and that Donald Trump “heard a voice out in this country that no one else heard.” Ryan lauded Trump because he “connected in ways with people no one else did.”

Moreover, Ryan said that Trump’s historic upset win “just earned a mandate” and with the Republicans now holding advantages in the House, Senate and the presidency, he reflected on the failures under George W. Bush when Republicans squandered their position, ignoring conservative principles:

“I think the mistakes of the Republican government is that we didn’t do the right thing at the right time. I think the mistakes that we made in the past is we didn’t seize the opportunity when it presented itself. The opportunity is now here and the opportunity is to go big, to go bold and to get things done for the people of this country.”

For his part, Paul Ryan won his own race last night, crushing his opponent while garnering 65 percent of the vote on Tuesday.
