President Donald Trump on Thursday slammed Fox News Channel board member and previous Home Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) for the network’s unfavorable protection of his dispute performances during the 2016 presidential campaign.
President Trump tweeted:
Could somebody at @foxnews please describe to Trump hater A.B. Stoddard (zero skill!) and @TeamCavuto, that I won every one of my arguments, from beginning to end. Inspect the surveys taken right away after the disputes. The disputes got me elected. Need to be Fox Board Member Paul Ryan!

The president’s criticism came in reaction to associate editor and writer at RealClearPolitics A.B. Stoddard, who called the president’s past dispute efficiencies “disastrous” throughout an look on the Fox Organisation Network.
“I think that Donald Trump had devastating dispute efficiencies,” Stoddard stated in a panel conversation hosted by Neil Cavuto. “Many responses were so cringeworthy. You simply couldn’t even believe that he was standing on the stage. And he’s president.”
Ryan, who signed up with Fox Corp.’s board in March 2019, has supposedly suggested to CEO Lachlan Murdoch that “Fox should decisively break with the president” as the media executive holds “strategy discussions with Fox executives and anchors about how Fox News must prepare for life after Trump.”
Vanity Fair, citing “an executive who’s spoken with Ryan,” reported that “Paul is ashamed about Trump and now he has the power to do something about it.”
Since resigning from Congress last January, Ryan told American Carnage author Tim Alberta that he wanted to “scold [the president] all the time” because he “didn’t know anything about government.”
Ryan likewise took goal at President Trump over claims of extramarital relations and labeling pornstar Rainy Daniels “horse face,” and declared he and the others prevented the president “from making bad decisions. All the time.”
“We helped him make much much better decisions, which were contrary to kind of what his knee-jerk reaction was,” Ryan apparently said. “Now I believe he’s making some of these knee-jerk reactions.”
President Trump hit back at Ryan over the reported remarks, branding him “Weak, inadequate & stupid” and implicated the retired legislator of nearly damaging the Republican Party when he was in Congress.
The president began on Twitter:
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is a far remarkable leader than was Lame Duck Speaker Paul Ryan. Harder, smarter and a far much better charity event, Kevin is currently closing in on 44 Million Dollars. Paul’s last year numbers were, according to Breitbart, ‘abysmal.’
People like….Paul Ryan practically killed the Republican Party. Weak, inefficient & dumb are not precisely the qualities that Republicans, or the PEOPLE of our Nation, were looking for.
He added, “Right now our spirit is at an all time high, far better than the Radical Left Dems. You’ll see next year!”
