Trump Expected to Endorse Ryan After Spox Said He Doesn’t Endorse in Primaries

Donald Trump Paul Ryan

FOX News, the cable network often accused of being a pro-Trump Super PAC, is reporting on Friday that Donald Trump will endorse Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan over his primary challenger, Paul Nehlen, who recently sang the praises of the Republican nominee and agrees with Trump on issues like immigration and trade policies.

The announcement is reported to take place in Wisconsin on Friday night and follows Trump’s refusal to endorse Ryan on Tuesday.

“I like Paul. I like Paul. But these are horrible times for our country. We need very strong leadership. We need very, very strong leadership. And I’m just not quite there. I’m not quite there yet,” Trump said on Tuesday, using almost the exact same verbiage Paul Ryan used in May when asked whether he would endorse Trump.

If Trump does endorse RINO Paul Ryan, an open-borders advocate who has been extremely squishy on issues Trump supposedly stands for, it will fly in the face of what Trump’s own advisers said on national TV this week.

Trump campaign spokesperson Katrina Pierson told Wolf Blitzer on Tuesday that Trump doesn’t endorse in primaries (even though he actually did endorse pro-amnesty Congresswoman Renee Ellmers, who lost her re-election bid in June).

Also this week, Trump surrogate and CNN commentator Kayleigh McEnany said that Trump wasn’t going to “play party politics” in an attempt to explain away Trump’s then non-endorsement of Paul Ryan.

However, that is exactly what Trump is doing in supporting Ryan, especially since I would contend that the overwhelming majority of his followers would like to see Ryan, considered “establishment” and “globalist,” booted from office.
