Paul Ryan Turns his Back on Trump - Cancels Plans to Campaign With Him

Speaker Paul Ryan is no taking kindly to Trump's remarks made in 2005. Paul Ryan turns his back on Trump, cancels plans to campaign with him. Ryan is not the only person with this reaction. Many Republicans are taking the steps necessary to distance themselves from Trump. All of this over a video from 2005 where Trump made some lewd comments.Paul Ryan Turns his Back on Trump

The two were set to meet Saturday in Ryan's native state of Wisconsin. After the video of Trump was released, Ryan cancelled those plans. The two did not actually speak to each other throughout this.

Here is what Paul Ryan had to say about the video:

“I am sickened by what I heard today. Women are to be championed and revered, not objectified. I hope Mr. Trump treats this situation with the seriousness it deserves and works to demonstrate to the country that he has greater respect for women than this clip suggests.”

Donald Trump returned with a video apologizing for the remarks he made in private in 2005.

It remains to be seen what type of long term affects these remarks will have on the Trump campaign. There have been other Republicans who have distanced themselves from Mr. Trump, including Utah's Republican Governor Gary Herbert and Rep Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah). Both rescinded previous endorsements of Trump. While this does not look good for Trump, he has recovered from other questionable statements before.

    Ryan is just a Democrat in Republicans clothing. He’s a disgrace

    Ryan has been lukewarm for Trump, or less than that, all along. Those of the GOP who have “distanced themselves” from Trump over this, or, worse, have rescinded their endorsement of him, reveal themselves to be faint-hearted supporters, or even Democrats atb heart, and Trump is well shot of the prissy jerks.

    I think the republicans and Paul Ryan are turncoats and never stood with Trump Ryan has proven he can’t be trusted when he bowed to Obama. And the rest are afraid of Trump because when he becomes president business as usual is over no more special interest groups no more donors to please no more ripping off we the people and NO MORE CAREER POLITICIANS and no more living off the hard working people and NO more pandering to big companies. Because we the people are fed up . We the people don’t give a hang how republicans fill about Trump for one you never gave a fig about we the people . So all you naysayers start looking for new jobs because we’re voting Trump in and our man has no problem saying YOUR FIRED AND HILLARY GO TO JAIL .
