Paul Ryan Issues 2020 Warning: If Race Is About Trump and His Personality, He Isn’t Going to Win
Former Speaker Paul Ryan believes that if the 2020 race ends up being too much of President Donald Trump‘s personality, he’ll lose.
Per TCPalm, Ryan reflected on his tenure at Speaker in a lecture this week, and he had this to say about the 2020 race:
Ryan also said he believes there are some Democrats who could beat President Donald Trump next year. He said Trump needs to define through policies, and not his personal brand.
“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 said.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was asked about Ryan’s comments and said today, “I believe this President will win re-election… I believe this President could run on many different items.”
Donald Trump Jr. was a little more direct:
Pretty rich. Mitt Romney’s failed 2012 running mate, the speaker who lied to us and didn't deliver Wall funding (and then lost the house) gives advice on winning. https://t.co/aJsGfHhsVv
