Trump Supporters React to Paul Ryan’s Announcement

This week, House Speaker Paul Ryan announced that he would not seek re-election, but will serve out the rest of his term.

Speaker Ryan, whose policies have drawn criticism from many Trump supporters since the election, stated that he wished to spend more time with his family, and was thanked by the president.

Trump supporters quickly took to Twitter to share their thoughts on Speaker Ryan’s retirement, and overwhelmingly agreed that replacing Ryan with a more “pro-Trump” Republican would be beneficial to the administration.

Almost immediately, social media users began suggesting replacements for the House Speaker, including Devin Nunes and Steven Scalise.
