John McCain and Paul Ryan have primaries next week and were expecting Donald Trump’s endorsement. Even after they both bashed him this week. Trump has responded with this. RINOS ARE FURIOUS!
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is refusing to back House Speaker Paul D. Ryan in his upcoming primary election, saying in an interview Tuesday that he is “not quite there yet” in endorsing his party’s top-ranking elected official.
Trump also said he was not supporting Sen. John McCain in his primary in Arizona, and he singled out Sen. Kelly Ayotte as a weak and disloyal leader in New Hampshire, a state whose presidential primary Trump won handily.
With Ryan’s Wisconsin primary scheduled for next Tuesday, Trump praised the House speaker’s underdog opponent, Paul Nehlen, for running “a very good campaign.” Trump said that Ryan has sought his endorsement, but that as of now he is only “giving it very serious consideration.”
This shouldn’t be a surprise to Ryan or MCain. They’ve have both done the bare minimum to support their nominee. Both have trashed him in the media in the last week. Did they really think Trump would forgive and forget? Nope! I wonder if either will rescind their endorsement now. It would look extremely childish and petty, and would play exactly into Trump’s hand!
