Paul Ryan: ‘With Trump We Lose’

Former House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin dropped a bomb on former President Donald Trump, predicting that Trump won't win the Republican nomination in 2024.

"Ryan said on ABC’s 'This Week' that former President Donald Trump caused the Republican Party to lose, so he will not win the presidential nomination in 2024," reported Breitbart.

"This Week" host Jon Karl said, "The midterms, you had, I think I saw you had predicted that at least 15 seats were probably Republicans pickups. What happened?"

"With Trump We Lose"

Ryan said, "A couple of factors, but I personally think the evidence is really clear. The biggest factor was the Trump factor."

"Just look at Chris Sununu ran ahead of Bolduc in New Hampshire. Look at where Kemp ran ahead of Walker in Georgia. So I think we would have clearly won the Senate had we had traditional Republicans in the general election like these governors did," Ryan said.

"I think we would have won places like Arizona, places like Pennsylvania, New Hampshire had we had a traditional conservative Republican, not a Trump Republican," Ryan added.

"What we now know it’s pretty clear with Trump, we lose. So I don’t mean this personally. It’s just evidence. We lost the House in ’18. We lost the presidency in ’20, the Senate in ’20, now in 2022, we should have and could have won the Senate," Ryan continued.

"We didn’t, and we a lower majority in the House because of the Trump factor. It’s palpable right now. We get past Trump, we start winning elections. We stick with Trump, we keep losing elections," Ryan hammered.

"That is why I don’t think he wins the nomination at the end of the day," said Ryan.
