House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) on Thursday said that he and and other congressional Republicans have “learned to live with” President Donald Trump’s frequent attacks against members of his party. In an interview with Ryan, NBC’s Kasie Hunt noted Trump’s feuds with Sens. Bob Corker and Ben Sasse, both of whom have criticized the President in recent weeks.
“Is that helpful to your agenda?” Hunt asked of Trump’s attacks.
“It’s what he does”, Ryan said, adding: “We’ve kind of learned to live with it. He and I have had — Well, not on this particular issue, but we’ve had our engagements in the past, too.”
The Wisconsin Republican was questioned about the war of words as President Trump erroneously blamed Corker for the Iran nuclear deal and dismissed him as “liddle’” Corker. The Tennessee senator suggested Trump was a man-child in an “adult day care center” and could lead the U.S. on the path to World War III.
House Speaker Paul Ryan called on President Trump and Sen. Bob Corker to end their public feud and “sit down and talk through their issues.” “Talk it out amongst yourselves” Ryan said. “My advice is for these two gentlemen to sit down and talk through their issues. That is the way to get things done.” Ryan, gave the advice after a reporter asked him his opinion of the Twitter spat between the president and Corker, who recently announced he is retiring after his term ends.
Furthermore, Ryan was asked whether Trump’s recent feuds with Sens. Bob Corker and Ben Sasse are “helpful” to advancing the Republican agenda.
“We are here to represent our constituents, to advance our principles, pass solutions; that’s what we are focused on and I try to get our members to just not get distracted by these things,” he answered.
The full interview with Paul Ryan will air on Sunday.
