Paul Ryan Speaker of the United States House, and third in the line of succession for the presidency, he will no longer be welcome at the White House nor will be included in plans for the future. According to a statement released by the White House spokesmen:
President Trump will no longer protect, defend or endorse anything the soon-to-be-former Speaker does, says or campaigns on. The betrayal of Paul Ryan and his subsequent dismissal as an adviser to the president is his own fault.
Let this be a lesson to the rest of Congress: Donald Trump is your chief executive. He deserves your support and respect. Anything other than that will result in your removal from office by the best interest of the American people. Only President Trump knows what it takes to win.
Ryan’s office has asserted that he can not be “fired” by President Trump but has also expressed remorse for the events that led up to the secret tape recently released by Breitbart:
In a moment of anger he made a statement, in private, that he wishes he could take back. Perhaps Mr. Trump can relate.
“Mr. Speaker…You’re fired.”
