WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump is again attacking House Speaker Paul Ryan. He’s calling him “very weak and ineffective” a day after the House speaker said he would not campaign for the Republican nominee.
Ryan told Republican lawmakers on a conference call Monday that he would focus instead on helping the party keep control of the House.
Trump referred to that call in his tweet Tuesday morning. He said Ryan “had a bad conference call where his members went wild at his disloyalty.”
It was his second tweet of the morning targeting Ryan. The other said Ryan’s “zero support” was making it hard for Trump to do well.
Ryan did face some pushback from members upset he was abandoning Trump. The House speaker continues to endorse the nominee.
