Certainly, there’s no love lost between former President Donald Trump and former House Speaker Paul Ryan. Just as certainly, these remarks today from Ryan will not endear him to Trump or Trump’s supporters.
“Former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said it’s ‘really clear’ that President Biden won the 2020 election, as fellow Republicans in his home state gear up for an audit of presidential ballots,” according to The Hill.
“‘President Trump lost the election. Joe Biden won the election,’ Ryan told WISN 12 in a rare interview on Monday… [emphasis added]
“Ryan told WISN that Trump ‘legitimately lost’ the 2020 race, noting that all of his legal challenges of the election results were thrown out in court.
“‘He exhausted the court challenges,’ Ryan said. ‘None of them went his way, so he legitimately lost. Is there mischief, organized shenanigans in elections? Sure. Is there fraud? Yes. Was it organized to the extent that it would have swung the Electoral College and the presidential election? Absolutely not.’
“Ryan also offered a broader criticism of Trump’s control over the GOP, saying, ‘I think we’ll just keep losing if we wrap ourselves around one person. We have not lost this much this fast in a long, long time.’“ [emphasis added]
