Ryan to face voters following Trump nationwide address

Ryan to face voters following Trump nationwide address

But after 15 minutes of listening to Speaker of the House Paul Ryan shamelessly trying to spin away the failures of the Republican Congress and White House Monday on CNN, I never want to see one again. In a written statement Monday, Ryan did not mention Trump by name.

"I had high hopes", ... Read More
