Trump Supporter Sen. Jeff Sessions: Paul Ryan Made “Big Mistake” Not Endorsing Trump (VIDEO)
Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) went on with Lou Dobbs to discuss Donald Trump’s historic rise in the Republican Party.
Sessions also weighed in on Paul Ryan’s outrageous remarks on Thursday that he was not ready to endorse the Republican nominee for president.
Well, the Speaker of the House is a big leader and an important figure in the Republican party. He calls on House members every day to stand with him in unity and he needs to set a good example for Republicans. I think this was a big mistake. I really do.
The Washington Examiner reported:
Sen. Jeff Sessions said Thursday night that House Speaker Paul Ryan made an error by saying he’s not ready to support Donald Trump yet, and said Ryan and other leaders need to realize the Republican Party is shifting under their feet.
“I think this was a big mistake, I really do,” the Alabama Republican said on Fox News. “And I’m very surprised, frankly, since he’d indicated he’d support whoever the nominee was.”
“The speaker of the House is a big leader, an important figure in the Republican Party,” he added. “He calls on House members every day to stand with him and unity, and he needs to set a good example for Republicans.”
Ryan shocked political observers by saying he wasn’t ready to endorse Trump, and Trump followed by saying he is “not ready to support Speaker Ryan’s agenda.” Despite the bluster, reports soon followed that the two are trying to arrange a meeting.
