Long before Paul Ryan’s departure from Congress, there was plenty of tension between himself and President Trump.
The two didn’t seem to see eye-to-eye on many subjects, regardless of either the those men having previously expressed different views. It belied a much nastier relationship between Trump and Ryan than many Americans were willing to recognize, worrying all the while whether or not Ryan would lead some sort of congressional revolt against the President.
Now, with the two men no longer in close proximity, you would think that the tensions would subside.
That is apparently not the case.
President Donald Trump is not happy that former House Speaker Paul Ryan blocked subpoenas of people and entities Trump thinks the House GOP should have been investigating during the first two years of his administration.Trending:
Trump told Breitbart News in an exclusive lengthy Oval Office interview that Ryan blocked issuance of subpoenas to people he thinks should have been investigated on the political left, and now that the Republicans no longer have the majority in the House, people Trump says Ryan protected may have gotten away with whatever they did that warranted investigation.
The constant bombardment of Trump by the “resistance” is turbulent enough on its own without the added caveat of defecting republicans… especially those who have been in positions of power such as Ryan’s.
One positive note, however, is that this President has been able to circumvent a great deal of this “resistance” in his quest to make America great again, as evidenced by his unprecedented economic success.
