‘I saved your ass’: Trump told Paul Ryan he was ‘dying like a dog’ in his own state according to new book

Published

on

Former White House communications aide Cliff Sims is set to release his book “Team of Vipers” in the coming weeks. The book details his time in the White House and is an up-close look at President Donald Trump.

In his book, he mentions Trump’s treatment towards outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI.)

In one chapter of the book, Trump is seen as “increasingly angry” at Ryan’s news coverage in the aftermath of the Charlotteville rally.

“President Trump watched on television, increasingly angry, as House Speaker Paul D. Ryan criticized his handling of the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville. He held the remote control ‘like a pistol’ and yelled for an assistant to get the Republican leader on the phone,” Washington Post writer Philip Rucker said.

“Paul, do you know why Democrats have been kicking your a** for decades? Because they know a little word called ‘loyalty,’” Trump told Ryan in the book. “Why do you think Nancy has held on this long? Have you seen her? She’s a disaster. Every time she opens her mouth another Republican gets elected. But they stick with her . . . Why can’t you be loyal to your president, Paul?”

The book continues to describe Trump “torment” towards Ryan. Sims shows Trump as calling Ryan a “dog” in need of saving.

“I remember being in Wisconsin and your own people were booing you,” Trump said to Ryan according to Sims. “You were out there dying like a dog, Paul. Like a dog! And what’d I do? I saved your a**.”

Roger Stone's trial, which ended in a guilty verdict on all seven counts, raised new questions about whether President Donald Trump perjured himself in written responses to the special counsel's questions, and Democrats may present that evidence and examine Mueller's findings on obstruction of justice, reported Politico.
