Donald Trump calls Ryan plan a ‘death wish’ for GOP
Three Fox News hosts appeared shocked Wednesday morning as Real estate mogul Donald Trump called his own party’s budget plan a “death wish.”
“I’m looking at the Republicans and seeing things that are like they have a death wish,” Trump said. “Whether its the Ryan plan — which is a death wish. For him to have brought this plan out at this time.”
“He’s a nice a guy and all that stuff but that’s irrelevant. This plan caused a loss in an area that never loses for a Republican, you know that, in upstate New York. An impossible loss,” he added.
“But I’m stunned by your reaction to that because you also are a guy who tells it like it is, and so one would think that you would agree with Paul Ryan’s plan because some people say he’s the only person who’s telling it like it is,” host Gretchen Carlson noted.
“The fact is that whether you agree with the plan or not, his timing was horrendous,” Trump replied. “You don’t come out with a plan, have all your friends vote on it, and now half of those guys are going to lose their elections.”
