Paul Ryan Clarifies Remarks on Trump and 2020: We’re ‘Clearly Better Off’ Because of POTUS

Former Speaker Paul Ryan took to Twitter this morning to clean up some comments he made about President Donald Trump at a recent event.

Ryan got some attention for saying at an event, “The person who defines that race is going to win the race. If this is about Donald Trump and his personality, he isn’t going to win it.”

Ryan got some criticism for his remarks, including from Donald Trump Jr.:

Well, this morning Ryan tweeted a clarification of his remarks, saying, “To be clear, GOP wins elections when they’re about ideas not when they’re personality contests like Dems & media want. We’re clearly better off because of @RealDonaldTrump. His record of accomplishment is why he’ll win re-election especially when compared to Dems’ leftward lurch.”
